Lifestyle Session Light

Every House Has Light

Is this really true?  YES, yes it is!This is probably the number one question when someone is booking a Lifestyle Session…Are you sure my house will be bright enough?Of course it will be!  And I am very confident I can find the light for your lifestyle session.

You have light, I promise. I’ll have you open your blinds and shades and turn off any ambient lighting before I arrive. I know what you’re thinking, why do you want me to turn off the lights in my house? Ambient lighting can cast strange color hues and lots of shadows. A Lifestyle Session with NPS Photography is a natural light session, so we turn off all the lights!

We Do Need Sun for a Lifestyle Session

Just like outdoor sessions, I check the weather like it’s my job to make sure we are going to have some sunlight.  I realize there are times we might not be able to reschedule, and I can certainly make almost anything work, but I prefer sun. And if it turns out we have to shoot on that cloudy day, you just might see more black and whites in your album. Which to be honest are kind of my favorites!

Sometimes we might need to use spots that you hadn’t really thought of…like your kitchen!

The light for your Lifestyle Session might not be where you think it is – but it’s there and I will capture beautiful images of your family in it! And we can always move it outside, too.  Family pictures on your porch or front steps are the perfect way to round out your album.
