What is Lifestyle photography
I like to think of lifestyle photography as natural relaxed portrait photography. It is led by the family, where they interact, chat and play through the session. It is in those moments you really see the personalities.
Why opt for a Lifestyle photography session?
It really is a matter of taste, if you want formal studio images then it is not for you. However, if you like images that tell a story, record a time in your families life, then this is perfect. It is based more as a fly on the wall, using natural light and relaxed families. These session are quick and fun and suit young families that don’t have the time to travel to the studio and feel their children would loose interest in a studio session.
Can I still get family portraits?
I always still take a couple of more formal looking images, using a plain wall or a garden space. This does allow you to get a real mix in your gallery.
Is my home suitable?
Of course. I have worked in lots of different spaces, and I can work around any home.
Will the children enjoy it?
Children love this type of session, the love showing off their toys, their books etc. Is is much more fun for them than a formal session. They are really relaxed and in turn you get natural images. I love when they pick out their favourite toy or book and begin to play or read. Those images will be so precious later in life. These images tell a story, when you look at them you will think of them at that age, what things they enjoyed and it will encourage other memories of bed time stories etc.
