What is Lifestyle Family Photography – Behind the Scenes (VIDEO)


Lifestyle family photography, to me, means capturing the essence of the family in a natural and organic way. It means creating soulful portraits that capture their love and connection. It is so much fun and rewarding to get to know the families I photograph and to create the portrait session experience based on what the family truly loves doing. During the design consultation I like to get to know the family, the family’s dynamics, personalities and favorite activities. Kids are usually full of energy and parents might be concerned if kids will cooperate and/or if they will get good photos. I know that if they are all having a great time together then the session feels more like a playdate than a traditional portrait session. This creates an opportunity to capture the real expressions full of joy and laughter.

Lifestyle sessions are about telling the family’s story and capturing each family’s unique connection in their own environment. That is why lifestyle portrait sessions usually take place in the comfort of the home and/or a meaningful location. I love to create an amazing experience for my clients where everyone feels relaxed and we get to capture beautiful memories together. Below please find a video that shows what happens behind the scenes family lifestyle session as well what is behind my isnpiration of why I do what I do.
