Have you heard about Lifestyle Photography? It probably has a number of meanings to different photographers, but to me it is about not always looking at the camera and capturing images to reveal a story – a story of your life & the love of your family. The images below are examples of what I would call lifestyle photography.
I like to capture my subjects both posed and semi-posed or candid. You may have noticed, however, that most of the images on my website are of newborns posed alone or with their siblings & parents. This is why I decided to write this post – to show you my other style, which is about capturing images to show feelings, emotions, relationships and personality of my subjects at home or on location. This style can be applied to capture newborns too (I’d love to try capturing birth one day). This is my favourite way to photograph children and families as it allows me to capture each subject in a unique way. After all, no two people are the same…and no two families are identical either, so your photoshoot should be that way too. And furthermore, I wish to photograph your family in a way that you can really display these images on your walls and enjoy them as not just photographs, but as a piece of art.
And here are some of the images larger just so you can really see how lovely this family is.
This is what “lifestyle” photography is to me: capturing an honest moment in a person or family’s life. It is unique to each of my clients. Working in a natural setting with fabulous natural lighting…I don’t think it gets any better than that! And here is another Wall Display but in black and white because I wanted to make it look more classic and clean. Hope you like it too.
Let’s say you have a couple of photos you love. In your home, such an image could be displayed in a group as such…
The frames shown are 10×8 and 24×20. Doesn’t it look fabulous?!
I’d love to design a wall display just for you for free. This is something I offer to all my clients, past and new… so click here to talk to me about it. Remember, photos are best when printed and displayed at your home.
Hope you enjoyed the post and could share your thoughts on the idea of lifestyle photography. Which do you prefer – posed or candid photos?
(P.S. I just love this gorgeous family and have thoroughly enjoyed being able to take their family pictures – Thank you!)
