What is Lifestyle Photography?
A lifestyle family session is a little different than what we typically think of when we hear “family photos.” I will guide your family into flattering poses, but once you are in those positions you are encouraged to interact with each other as if I’m not there. You will never hear me ask you to “cheese,” and I ask that you refrain from telling your kids to “cheese” during our session as well. It may not seem like we're getting good images of your little ones because they're running around exploring and enjoying themselves, but I promise we are! I aim to capture genuine images of their childhood, not stiff unrealistic poses. Some prompts I might give include tickling, nuzzling, or whispering to each other. These prompts will help to create genuine smiles rather than a stiff, fake smile. I like to think the subject of my images is not only you and your family, but the connection and emotion between your family members as well.
