I have always been inspired by lifestyle photographers. Images of everyday life and human emotion always catch my eye and touch my heart. One of the goals for my own photography is to focus more on lifestyle sessions; capturing real moments. Less posing, more natural. To me, these are the moments in life that I want to remember. Sure, there is absolutely something nice about having posed family portraits as well. But I have always been captivated by photos of the everyday magic of life.
On New Year’s Eve I spent the morning doing a lifestyle session with this perfect little family. It was nothing formal or posed, and it was lovely. They carried on with their daily happenings; feeding P, giving her a bath, changing her, watching TV, and hanging out in the living room. They didn’t dress up, they never said “cheese”, and I never told them what to do. These photos are a perfect reflection of their life. This is life.
