Why Lifestyle Photography? | Ellensburg Lifestyle Photographer

Type “family photographer in my area” in your google search bar and you’ll find a plethora of styles, pricing models, specialties etc.   There are a lot of talented artists out there and we all have our ideas about what we think family photos should look like.  You’ll see the word “lifestyle” everywhere on my website and in my blogposts and I thought I would explain what it is and why I use it.

“Lifestyle” photography falls somewhere in between traditional portraiture, very posed, and documentary photography, which is completely un-posed.  My lifestyle photography is gently posed, as I tell my families what to do, how to stand and who to look at.  I guide the scenes where they are snuggling, laughing, walking and smiling.  I use motion, environment, and emotion to tell the stories of my families. If you are looking for an entire gallery of families all perfectly smiling at the camera in different locations and poses….look for a traditional portrait photographery….but if you want connected, timeless, and joyful photos of your family enjoying each other’s company (not looking at the camera all the time), than I’d love give you some more info. The smile a toddler will give his mama when their eyes lock onto each other is far more genuine to me than telling them to say cheese and look at me.  The kiddos running around their parents and hugging around legs….just being kids.  It’s perfection. It’s what I think family photos should look like.

I specialize in lifestyle newborn and family photography because I truly believe it’s the best way to capture a family life and connection.  In the photos below, this little guy was only 5 months old and dad was leaving on deployment days after our session.  At 5 months, I’m not going to spend an entire session trying to get a baby to smile….I’m going to capture him snuggled into his parents and a family enjoying their precious time together.  And…a 5 month old has a pretty limited time frame of happiness on a chilly fall morning, so keeping my families moving from one thing to another keeps the kiddos engaged.  I just love this session and love that they chose me to capture this fleeting time in their lives.

Anyway, hope this helps clear up some confusion.  Thanks for stopping by!

Coyne Family | Ellensburg Lifestyle Photographer

So happy to meet the Coyne Family this year and photograph one of my favorite places in the county… also where I lived for a time in my childhood.  As more and more houses fill this little valley, I’m still brought back to the winding road where we wrecked our bikes, dodged rattlesnakes, and rode our ponies as wild little girls and I just love seeing these kiddos get to enjoy the same beautiful place.   It was incredibly bright with little shade, so we had some interesting backgrounds and shadows, but it worked out and I love the results.  That’s the part that’s become easier as I’ve continued my career, capturing timeless memories regardless of the circumstances.  I can do a lot on the front end to prepare my families and myself before a session, but I cannot control the weather or the light.  I make the best of the things I can’t control and deeply appreciate my families and their open mindedness, trust, and patience.  I feel like lifestyle photography really speaks to this age and family season. My favorite photos are when kiddos are moving and laughing or snuggling with their family.  It’s genuine joy.  It’s perfection amidst a little chaos and I just love it.  Anyway, thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day friend! Coyne Family, Haberman Family, Lifestyle session captured by Hailey Haberman, Ellensburg, WACoyne Family, Haberman Family, Lifestyle session captured by Hailey Haberman, Ellensburg, WACoyne Family, Haberman Family, Lifestyle session captured by Hailey Haberman, Ellensburg, WACoyne Family, Haberman Family, Lifestyle session captured by Hailey Haberman, Ellensburg, WA

Baby Abby | Lifestyle Maternity & Newborn Photographer

 Isn’t Baby Abby the cutest!  She has the sweetest little smile, adores her big brothers and those CHEEKS…These parenting vetrans are so laid back and have the best sense of humor, I always enjoy my sessions with them. When they said they were expecting another baby, and a girl (YAY!!)….so thrilled for them.  I couldn’t wait to meet their sweet baby girl at her newborn session in their home. They have such a cool little farmhouse in the country, surrounded by goats and chickens. This is why these lifestyle sessions are just my favorite. A home is a pretty personal space and being invited into that (in the midst of newborn survival mode) is so touching to me, I don’t take it for granted.  I love seeing their photos on the wall, kiddos play in their own rooms, and families love on each other and feel completely relaxed in their own space.  The flexibility is also pretty awesome.  If the older kiddos need a break, a snack, some Wild Kratts (my kids personal fave)….they can do that!  If baby doesn’t want to be put down, we don’t have to put baby down! They are just such a treat and I cherish every one I get to do.  Hope  you enjoy the Baby Abby and family as much as I do, thanks for stopping by!
