What is lifestyle photography?

July 30, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Lifestyle sessions are quickly becoming a favorite of mine.  I get a lot of questions about what "lifestyle photography" means, so I thought I'd take a moment to define it.  Lifestyle sessions fall somewhere in the middle of posed portrait sessions and true photojournalism.  It blends the candid with the staged.  The goal is to tell a story about people in their own environment in a natural, authentic, yet artistic way.  

My portrait sessions have always had an organic feel to them.  I love being outside, and encourage people to wear things that make them comfortable or choose locations that hold some sort of meaning for them.  I don't typically go for a prop-heavy, stylized look, so lifestyle sessions are a natural fit for me to offer.  Lifestyle sessions aren't completely candid.  Let's be honest - it takes a bit to adjust to having a lady with a camera following you around in your home, or at a farm, or wherever you choose to have your session.  I do offer suggestions and work around the best light to make sure your photos look as good as possible.  What I strive to capture are the moments that will make you look back and say "Oh my goodness, I remember when..."  I want clients to look back on their sessions and remember how they felt, not just how they looked.  Of course, I always include some posed, smiling portraits as well.

So what do you DO for a lifestyle session, exactly?  Well, whatever you like.  If you have a newborn baby, I will capture you snuggling, feeding, changing, and doing all the things that being at home with a new baby entails.  You can pick something that your family loves to do, and we can build a session around that:  gardening, cooking, playing with toys, fishing, you name it.  By having the session in your home, your back yard, or at a place you love, we'll create portraits that convey the emotions of real moments and relationships that will be treasured by your family for years to come.  Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography
