What is Lifestyle Photography?

Updated: Oct 18, 2021

This is one of the most common questions I am asked so allow me to explain :)

In a nutshell, lifestyle photography is a style of portrait photography that aims to capture real-life situations in an artistic manner. The purpose of this type of photography is to share your story through candid, un-staged scenes.

My lifestyle sessions are first and foremost about you guys spending quality time together and having fun! It is essentially about capturing your connection to one another and aims to keep things very natural and easy, however, it stills requires direction and guidance from me as your photographer. Therefore, I guide and direct you into different poses but within these I encourage interaction so that you can still be your fun and quirky selves which will show through in the beautiful photographs. The poses include standing, sitting and even moving around a bit. Within these I ask you to cuddle, tickle, whisper and play games. I don’t want you to look at the camera unless I call you and I don’t expect you to smile unless you are having fun! While I always try to get some more traditional family portraits with everyone looking at the camera, this is not my priority!

Using extensively natural light, my main goal is to create beautiful works of art from seemingly ordinary moments that weave together to tell your story.
