I’m Nancy Lary, lifestyle photographer.  I drink too much diet soda and go to Panera way too often.  But enough about me…

Why lifestyle portraits? Because first and foremost, I’m a mom. Like a lot of children’s photographers, my kids were my first subjects. When I look through the lens at your kids, I want to capture for you what I’d want to capture for my own family. The way I see it, if you’re going to pay for custom photography, you should get something truly unique and something that genuinely captures the essence of your kids and your family. This is best done with little direction, posing and props. It’s usually the shots I get right before or after the “portrait shot” when families are interacting and relaxed that end up conveying emotion and drawing the viewer in.

So if you’re ready to surrender the notion that good pictures require cheesy grins, perfect poses and everyone looking right at the camera, let’s set up a session and have some fun!
