Lifestyle sessions capture the moments that you and your family would typically do. This can be hanging out at home, going to your favorite coffee shop, record stores, or bookstores you usually frequent. It is incorporating your "real-life events" into the session. Lifestyle locations should be chosen by you. I can throw out ideas and see what you like to do, but the final choice should be yours.
Throughout the session, I will encourage the manifestation of love and connection. A perceivable connection will give your family photos a human feel, and makes everything contained in them appear genuine.
A Lifestyle photoshoot has a documentary feel, hence the outcome of its majority being a collection of "candid" images.
These take place in your home or in a meaningful location to you. I will incorporate everything about your family, using your home or any other place as the background. Bia will capture your family, just as they are, doing activities you all love.
Birth: My birth sessions cover your entire birthing experience, from active labor to the first few hours of your new baby’s life, in a beautiful and real documentary style. I capture your journey through labor, your baby’s first breath and first cry, cutting the cord, your first expression when you see her face, and everything about that brand new bundle of joy and each one of her first precious and incredible moments of life.
Fresh 48: A birth space newborn session allows those raw memories to be savored forever. Your session will take place in your birth space (hospital, home, birth center). These sessions are completely documentary in nature. I come in and capture you connecting with your new baby. This session is only for the immediate family. I keep my schedule open around your due date and will visit your space within the first 48 hours of life or before you are discharged from the hospital. These sessions are stress-free and relaxed, No prepping necessary.
In-Home Lifestyle newborn sessions are the perfect way to capture your new baby in your home in a relaxed way. The lifestyle newborn shoot focuses primarily on the interaction between the new baby, their family, and their surroundings and is much less centered around obtaining the perfect pose. Therefore having a baby under two weeks of age is less important. This is a great way to get images in your new nursery. No posing (either of the baby or family) is done in-home, just gentle and relaxed direction, which allows for natural connection and interaction to occur.
Children lifestyle sessions are perfect to capture your child in their own environment. We plan the session totally around their interests. Think about jumping on the bed, painting, swimming, playing catch with a sibling, riding on the carousel, go to their favorite ice cream place and so on.
Couples Lifestyle shots are the perfect way to capture love, passion, friendship and intimacy between two people. This session will take place in a meaningful and memorable location for the couple.
These are a great way to show the expectation and preparedness of the parents just before the baby arrives. It will take place in your home with an emphasis on the nursery room. The incorporation of siblings and pets is a perfect way to tell the story of an expecting family.
These are perfect for families, children, maternity and couples. They are not the documentary type of session, although it will still have my signature feeling of relaxation and authenticity. These sessions will be more directed and controlled by me, with a mixture of candid shots and posed ones. This session takes place on the beach or on an open field on a cloudy or clear sky 1 hour before the sunset. Any other location that you might have in mind I'm open for discussion.
