The Lifestyle Session

Have you ever wanted to document your family just being you? Doing the things you love or the things that really make your kids smile, instead of getting dressed up and posing in a portrait studio against a plain black background? A "Lifestyle Session" might be just what you're looking for. Be Photography is excited to introduce this new concept in portrait photography to our growing line of packages. With a Lifestyle Session, we come to your house or your location of choice and spend up to two hours photographing you doing the things you love. Reading books with your kids, baking in the kitchen, sipping wine on the patio, or whatever else strikes your fancy. This type of session can tell a story about your family that regular portrait sessions can't. Although posed shots are an option during your session, the focus is more on capturing candid moments between you and your loved ones.

I had the privilege of photographing my first Lifestyle Session last week for some long time clients of ours.  Here is some of what we were able to capture:

We started out in Lena's room with story books and all her favorite stuffed animals. This room was especially fun for me to photograph since all the canvas prints hanging on her wall above the bed were pictures that I had taken of her.

We also did some fun shots in their gorgeous kitchen and then headed out to the back patio.

And then of course Lena had to do a little modeling for us - she is almost too cute for words!

Not only is a Lifestyle Session a great way to remember your family in photographs, it is also an excellent way to remember the home your kids grew up in, your favorite park to play at, or any other meaningful location of your choice.

The lifestyle package starts at $300 for the 2 hour session for up to 8 people. This includes your choice of 20 images on a disc with full copyright release. For just $100 more you can go with the Lifestyle Plus package, which comes with a 20 page professionally printed and bound photobook containing all your favorite images from your session. Since a lifestyle session essentially tells a story of your family in a photo journalistic fashion, this can be an excellent way to commemorate the session and makes an excellent gift for friends and family. Additional copies of the book can be purchased for $50 each. 

More details about these and all the great packages that we offer can be found on our website at www.bephotographyoregon.com

The Be Family is Growing!

We are excited to announce that we'll be adding one more member to our little family - due to arrive in mid-February! What does this mean for your family pictures this year? Well, we will still be doing our annual Fall Special, the weekend of October 5th and 6th, and we'll be booking sessions through the end of October, with a few openings into November. However, there will be no Christmas Special this year so if you need pictures for your Christmas Card, make sure to book a fall session soon before spots fill up! I will be taking December - April off to be with my family and welcome this new little blessing into our home. I just want to say thank you to each and every one of you for your support, love, and encouragement, which has allowed my passion to become a way to help support my family! I'm looking forward to fall pictures, especially all you seniors out there, and since I'm now in the 2nd tri-mester, the next three months should be smooth sailing!

A beautiful sunset maternity session...

I had the opportunity to take some beautiful maternity pictures for one of my favorite couples tonight. You might remember them from a couple of years ago when we photographed their gorgeous wedding.

Or maybe from last Christmas when they announced that a little one was on the way.

With less than a month left until they become a family of 3, I was honored to be able to capture some absolutely beautiful maternity moments with the lovely couple. Here are a few that were just too cute not to share!

We can't wait to meet your little guy on the outside very soon!

Our first annual Beach Special last year in Lincoln City was such a hit and so much fun, we definitely wanted to do it again this year! I wanted to post some pictures of the location so you have an idea of what to expect. The best slots for lighting are going to be in the late afternoon/early evening so I'll only be booking a very limited number of sessions this year. The date is Saturday July 27th at Taft Pier in Lincoln City. The special includes a 45 minute session for up to 4 people (additional people can be added for $25 each), and your choice of 10 edited images selected from your own private online viewing gallery. Your images will be  burned to a disc with full printing rights. All this for only $165! Oh, and did I mention it's a great excuse to take your family to the beach for the weekend? Who doesn't love the Oregon Coast!? Here's some samples of the location from last year.

To book your own family session at Taft Pier this summer, please email us at shay@bephotographyoregon.com or call 503.407.9622
