I love shooting lifestyle portrait sessions with families in Southwest Michigan because they’re fun, you can do them just about anywhere, and you can almost always find something new to do with the family photos! This family photo shoot took place in the
dunes in Stevensville Michigan on what turned out to be a beautiful afternoon and managed to use the setting sun to capture some really unique family photos. This was the first time I’ve done any family pictures in the dunes but after seeing how many
possibilities there are here I’m hoping I have the opportunity to work here again soon! For those of you wondering what the difference between a Lifestyle Portrait session and regular Family Portrait session is it’s actually pretty simple… The lifestyle portrait
session is centered around an activity or general location whereas the Family Portrait Session is focused more on structured poses. Each session has it’s place, for instance if you’re having a family reunion or want a formal portrait of some sort there’s no reason to
book a Lifestyle Session… on the other hand if you’re looking for something a bit more laid back with your kids then a Lifestyle Portrait session might be just the thing for you. If you have questions we’d be happy to speak with you about what it is you’re
looking for and make a recommendation about which session would be right for you!
