Many people come to me and ask if their session will be fully posed. I understand completely, because it’s only natural to have lots of questions about your shoot before you arrive. Posing is something that many families/parents feel nervous about, because they want to know what to expect. I want to share little about my photography style, in order to put your mind at ease!
What is lifestyle photography?
A lifestyle photographer focuses on capturing natural and candid moments in everyday life. This style of photography often involves capturing people in their natural environments, doing what they normally do, without much direction or posing. Lifestyle photography is all about capturing the essence of the moment, and the emotions that come with it.
Lifestyle photography captures genuine and natural moments, which can make for more authentic and honest images. People often feel more relaxed and comfortable when they are not being posed or directed, which can result in more authentic and emotional photographs. It can tell a story about a person or a family’s life. By capturing the everyday moments, a lifestyle photographer can create a narrative that reflects the subject’s personality, lifestyle, and values.
Lifestyle photography can create an emotional connection between the subject and the viewer. When a viewer sees a natural moment captured in a photograph, they can relate to it and feel a connection to the subject. Lifestyle photography also results in timeless images that can be cherished for years to come. These images capture real moments and emotions that can be revisited and remembered for generations!
Many people want to know if I “ever take photos looking at the camera”, and the answer is: YES! I do, but those are few and far between, because there are more powerful images waiting in the raw moments. Also, this doesn’t mean that I don’t give any direction or help you feel confident: I definitely do! I help encourage natural interactions, connection, and love for each other and that results in beautiful images with authenticity.
