As they say, ‘Home is where the heart is,’ and when it comes to capturing those intimate, sweet days leading up to ‘I do,’ there’s no place like home. I’m here to share my photographer’s secrets on how to make your lifestyle photography session fun, flirty, and real.

What is Lifestyle Photography?

First, let’s break it down. What’s a lifestyle session? It’s all about capturing natural, candid moments in a comfortable environment where your love story thrives: your home. These sessions are a golden opportunity to showcase your authenticity as a couple, displaying not just your love but also your shared interests, hobbies, and the little things that make your partnership unique.

So, how do you breathe life into your in-home lifestyle session? I’ve got some tips for you, inspired by this–chef’s kiss–lifestyle engagement session:

How to Breathe Life into Your In-Home Lifestyle Photography Session

Dance Like Nobody’s Watching

Remember that scene in Risky Business where Tom Cruise dances around in his socks? Channel that energy! Crank up your favorite tunes and let loose in your living room. Not only does this create a fun, playful atmosphere, but it allows me to capture some genuinely joyful and candid moments.

Soak in Cuddles & Coziness

Another great way to add authenticity to your session is simply cuddling on your couch or bed. This intimate setting allows you to relax and naturally showcases your connection as a couple. Throw in a cozy blanket, a good book, or even your furry friend to make the scene even more personal!

Cook Up Some Love

Whether you’re foodies, baking enthusiasts, or a couple who just loves a good homemade meal together, why not incorporate this into your shoot? Cooking or baking together offers cute photo opportunities, and you get a delicious treat to munch on afterward! Plus, it’s a great way to show off your teamwork and compatibility. If you aren’t sure where to start, many meal delivery kits often come with photogenic ingredients and recipes. All you have to do is follow the directions!

Brew Coffee & Conversation

Are you both coffee lovers? Create a cozy coffee date setting at home. This could be as simple as sitting on the kitchen counter or as elaborate as setting up your at-home cafe with signature lattes. You can chat, laugh, and enjoy your favorite brew while I catch those intimate, flirty glances and genuine smiles.

Interact With Your Environment

Make the most of your home and its unique features. If you have a quaint balcony, enjoy a glass of wine there. If you have an enticing fireplace, light it up and snuggle close. Swing in the hammock in your backyard or play fetch with your dog. By interacting with your home, you can create a feeling of authenticity and comfort. Your home is where memories are made, and your story together began; you’ll be so glad to have these lifestyle pictures decades from now.

Show Off Your Hobbies

Your session should reflect who you are as a couple. Do you enjoy painting together, or perhaps you’re both into fitness? Incorporate these elements into your session for a touch of personality and character.

Add an Extra Dose of Humor

Lastly, don’t forget to laugh! An engagement session should be fun, not stressful. Tell each other jokes, play your favorite board games, or engage in a playful pillow fight. Let your unique sense of humor shine through. After all, it’s these moments of joy and laughter that make your relationship so unique.

Lifestyle Engagement Photos the LA Way

There are no hard and fast rules in lifestyle photography. The aim is to capture the essence of your love story in a relaxed, fun, and intimate manner. It’s about being yourselves and letting your love for each other shine through. So, let loose, have fun, and let’s create some beautiful memories together!
