Lifestyle photography is a sub-type of photography that has the purpose of capturing, in a candid way, portraits of people and families going about their daily lives in an interesting way. This could be activities that the family enjoys, real life situations and events, or milestones in an artistic manner. The sessions are about showing and telling the family’s story and their unique relationships with each other and their environment.
These types of sessions find a middle ground between typical documentary style photography, and the classic family portrait. The photographer takes on a background, almost transparent role, without interfering, while attempting to preserve those special moments that can only be done through a candid lens. One of the key differences between lifestyle and candid photographs, is how much, or how little involvement the photographer becomes in crafting the scene. These can be taken in your home or on location.
After an exceptional lifestyle photo session, you will end up with some excellent photos that will convey what life is like with that particular family.
