"Lifestyle photography is a kind of photography that mainly aims to capture portrait/people in situations, real-life events or milestones in an artistic manner and the art of the everyday. The primary goal is to tell stories about people's lives or to inspire people in different times."

WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT WHY I BELIVE IN LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY?
"I do yearly photoshoots with professional photographers to capture our family and the growth and change, and to be used for gifts (especially for the “hard to buy for” grandparents). Each year I have a lot of stress getting the kids ready, staged for photographer and it is a very unpleasant experience for everyone – especially with the grumpy preschooler. Libby’s style is very different than the rigid and cookie cutter photography. For the first time the family enjoyed the photo shoot and had a wonderful time. She captured our most authentic moments and selves, and the kids will remember the photos for a lifetime – not because of just the photos – because the family was together and making happy memories! Gorgeous photos! Highly recommend!!" - Suzi
“I’d wanted to do a newborn photo session for my first two children, but never got around to researching photographers or scheduling anything. When I found out about my third pregnancy, I was determined to schedule newborn photos. But, with the arrival of the pandemic and worries about exposing high-risk family members, I realized we’d probably miss out on the opportunity again.
After my son’s birth, I was so lucky to be introduced to Libby, see her work, and learn about her safety precautions (mask wearing, shooting from a safe distance, meeting us outdoors at our home, etc.), which changed my mind.
On the day of the shoot, Libby immediately put my family and me at ease - both healthwise and comfort in front of the camera. We prefer natural photos that show the way our family really is as opposed to more staged photos, so her style fit us perfectly.
We couldn’t be happier with the photos. They are such a special keepsake of this fleeting time, and I am beyond grateful to Libby for giving our family this special gift.”
