I am absolutely thrilled to launch [LIFE] Sessions! I’ve been conceptualizing and working on adding these documentary sessions for my clients since my son was born two years ago. I quickly recognized the need and desire to document the “little” moments in our life, not just the big.
The idea behind [LIFE] Sessions is to document your everyday life in a real, raw and un-posed manner. My goal is to detail the beauty of your family in your own element, and in turn create tangible and visual memories for you and your children to hold on to for years.
These sessions differ from a “regular” family session in multiple ways. They are shot “documentary” style. This basically means there is no formal “posing” from me. I am a fly on the wall while your family is allowed to interact naturally. From Lauren (video below) “While I love & treasure our posed family photos, “life sessions” offers a more personal, colorful & real snapshot into who we are and how we love as a family. From sticky syrup fingers, to princess crowns & plastic shoes, to the simple magic of bubbles, the photos & video that Alissa captured tell the story of our family at this sweet, and exhausting (haha), time in our lives.”
These sessions are also longer (2 hours in length) and include both an album and a short video (like the one below) with your package. That way you walk away with tangible products from this experience to pass on to your family.
So, what exactly does a [LIFE] Session entail? That’s totally up to you. We can just hang out at home, cook breakfast together, go to the park, go on a coffee run, take a walk around your neighborhood, whatever you want! I can document bedtime, bath time, lunchtime, dance party time, or just cuddle up and read a book time. Think about your day and about the times you say “I wish I could just have photos of this moment.” Let me make that happen for you.
And, I’m going to make that happen for TWO families! I’m giving away two of these sessions because I am just that stinkin’ excited about shooting these not only for you, but for myself. Your everyday moments make my heart sing, and I want your children to see them and hold on to them for years.
So, want in?! (The answer is obviously YES!)
Any client that books a [LIFE] Session for 2018 by March 30th will receive $100 off the session fee. Contact me for full session information and pricing details.
And, you absolutely cannot miss my [LIFE] Session and review of it with the wonderful Tate family below:
“What a treasure these photos & video are for our family! We have known and worked with Alissa since Ella & Claire were tiny newborns & are always blown away at how she is able to capture our family at each stage of life – from sleepy newborns to totally crazy toddlers. When Alissa first presented me with the idea of a “life sessions,” I was SO excited – I have always wished that we could have our normal, day-to-day, documented, as I know that the memories we make on the normal, mundane, uneventful days, are the moments that I will look back on and want to remember when our girls are grown. Although I take a lot of iPhone pictures, it is rare that we have our entire family in the photo, unless it’s a special occassion or our yearly professional photos with Alissa. While I love & treasure our posed family photos, “life sessions” offers a more personal, colorful & real snapshot into who we are and how we love as a family. From sticky syrup fingers, to princess crowns & plastic shoes, to the simple magic of bubbles, the photos & video that Alissa captured tell the story of our family at this sweet, and exhausting (haha), time in our lives. I am so grateful to have images & video that capture the joy, innocence, challenges, wonder, & busyness of this life stage. A true gift that we will all cherish for years to come.” – Lauren T.
