A Lifestyle Session in a Nutshell


According to Wikipedia lifestyle photography is “a style of portrait / people photography which aims to capture and document real-life events, situations, or milestones in an artistic manner and the art of the everyday.”

The beauty of a lifestyle session is that it isn’t scripted and posing isn’t required. It is meant to capture the real moments as they happen naturally. It is an opportunity to capture a family doing what they do the best – being themselves. As a photographer, it allows for me to focus on the moments as they play out and to capture them without the burden of posing, staging, and guiding. It provides the family with a more relaxed atmosphere in a familiar environment – their home. The moments are just those simple everyday kind of times – reading a story, baking cookies, play dress-up, and even washing the dishes with your children. It is a way of documenting a bit of your family’s story. You will be amazed at how simple and meaningful those little moments become and how lovely your life is during these moments.┬áLet it happen and let me photograph it happening!

As your Lifestyle Photographer, I will:

  • Stay true to real life
  • Ask you about things your family enjoys doing together. I will learn a bit about your family before the session.
  • Select the best places in your home with optimal lighting and a space that allows for active engagement.

Don’t expect me to:

  • Pose your family
  • Tell your family what to wear
  • Ask your family to smile on demand. I want natural interaction within the family.
  • Bring props
