If you really want to simplify it, lifestyle photography is a type of candid photography (although truthfully it’s so, so much more than just candid photos). Lifestyle photography aims to capture people in real-life situations with genuine emotion and in a matter that is a combination of photojournalism and fine-art.
The goal of lifestyle photography is to capture a story; uninterrupted and with the utmost care. Lifestyle photography is perfect for weddings, birthing, newborn, family and maternity sessions. And, lifestyle photography can have a place in your life beyond those yearly photos or special events photos such as: decorating the Christmas tree, bringing home a new pet, learning how to skate, a special birthday party, a new baby..and so much more.
If you are the type of person who wants to capture the raw, natural emotions of life; those fleeting moments that you wish you could hold on to forever, then lifestyle photography is the right fit for you! Our lifestyle clients are relaxed, fun-loving and understand that candid photography, unlike posed photography, is a true representation of who you are, what you look like and what you are feeling at that very moment. Lifestyle photography isn’t for everyone and that’s okay! While we’d love to photograph you, we want to photograph people who we know will be relaxed and care-free in front of our lens in order for us to provide you with the best possible experience.
