Why You Should Book a Studio Lifestyle Session!

studio lifestyle session

The MTP Studio is up and running! It’s been wonderful to have a studio and capture so many families there. So far we’ve done newborn sessions, cake smashes, and fall family sessions. Check them out here! Studio lifestyle sessions are amazing because it’s all the perks of an at-home session with zero of the hassle. But if you’re still on the fence, here’s some more detail about what a lifestyle studio session is like and how it can be the perfect fit for your family.

First, my studio mimics a home.

There will be no stiff family portraits taken here! I want to recreate an at-home session as closely as I can so that anyone can have that homey warmth in their photos, even if the session isn’t in their home. Also, I set up my studio to capture the best natural light. This makes it easy for families to show up and we can hit the ground running.

Studio sessions are never canceled because of weather.

Yes, I am talking about year-round sessions regardless of the rain and the cold. This is perfect if you want a photography session but are hesitant because it’s during the middle of a scorching summer month or a freezing winter month. Let’s capture beautiful photos of your family inside!

As I mentioned earlier, I can replicate the cozy homey feeling in my studio and all you have to do is show up!

At-home, sessions are beautiful but sometimes the feeling of needing to clean, organize, and maybe even redesign your home is overwhelming. My studio is set up to capture that snuggling home feeling and you don’t have to lift a finger.

In addition, any photo sessions can be turned into studio lifestyle sessions. All sessions that you can book with me can be studio sessions if you want. I have lots of different furniture and backdrop options so that it will fit and feel comfortable for what you want to capture.

Lastly, studio lifestyle sessions are more intimate and private like an at-home session.

You don’t have to worry about people walking around if this is something that bothers you. Now I’m a master at knowing how to work around people who might be at our location, so don’t let that stop you from booking an outdoor session. But if this bothers you or your family, a studio session would be a great option! I can close the studio doors and then it’s just your family and me.

I genuinely think that everyone should try a studio lifestyle session at least once! It’s such a great balance between an at-home session and a location session because it takes the best of both and I have incredible photos of your families to prove it. As always, contact me if you have any questions about a studio session. Especially with everything going on right now, I deep clean and sanitize frequently and between each use. I am happy to talk with you about keeping our studio sessions safe and comfortable for everyone.
