In this blog post I’ll share with you why I chose lifestyle documentary approach in my photo sessions.
Why Lifestyle Family photography? For me storytelling photography is a gift to your families when they even don’t know they need it. It’s a kind of time machine. We, as mothers especially, think that we are going to remember it all. And some thing we really do: like baby smell, the day they were born, highlights from their birthdays or other milestones. But by the time our kids turn lets say 18, we want to remember how it feels when we cuddle with them, or tuck them in a bed before sleep, or how they hide behind us being shy to say “Hello” to stranger :) There are things that get really emotional every single time. When I photograph families my goal is that they get same real emotional response each time when they look at the photos and treasure those images for many years.
Lifestyle family photography is an honest general approach in telling your families a story, celebrating whatever season of life they are currently in. For some people storytelling photography could be those adorable mini sessions with pumpkins, bubbles and tutu skirts, or studio professionally posed images, or indoor intimate sessions, there is place for it all. And it shouldn’t be either/or. It can be anything you want it to be: conceptual, documentary, improvised, whatever you make it.
My personal approach is inspired by real emotions, just as they are, in a way that is real and at the same time unique, romantic and full of life and love. I’ve dedicated myself and my talent to this craft of lifestyle photography and truly enjoy it’s journey. During my photo sessions I try to blend my vision, what inspires me, with what is meaningful for my families for that moment!
I hope you enjoy this journey with me too!
