Lifestyle Photography….Capture the REAL moments

I hear it all the time: “I don’t want my photos to look posed.” With a lifestyle photography session your images will be anything but posed. Think candids that serve to “capture the moment” versus staging a scene, and stunning, true-to-life photography that tells your story just as it is, at that precise moment. This slice-of-life approach is great for any genre of photography including family sessions or other special occasions. it will bring your images to life over and over again.

Getting the kids involved : Shooting lifestyle photography with your children

Lifestyle photography is the perfect approach for capturing the beauty and authenticity of childhood. Make sure your little ones are well rested, make sure they’re comfortable and confident in both their clothes and their surroundings, and make sure you come armed with patience—then let the magic happen. A favorite snack, toy or book doesn’t hurt either! Believe it or not, the most successful shoots are often the ones that let the kids lead. It’s a magical, spirited time and there’s so much to take in. By sitting back and capturing those honest moments you’ll ensure a stunning shoot you’ll love for decades.


5 Rules on What to Wear for your Photo Session

If you’re shooting with another person, make sure your outfits complement one another’s. Choose a consistent color palette (which does not mean the same color). If someone is wearing a bold pattern, dress the rest of the group in more solids, but be sure each carries one or more colors from the “star” outfit for consistency.
Scarves, hats, bows, bands…it all adds a fun twist to an otherwise “standard” look. Accessories are also a great place to coordinate looks. For example, if Mom is wearing a bright pattern with lavender, pink and gray, little brother can rock a pair a gray sneakers while Dad can choose a lavender shirt and big sis with a pink headband.
Kids naturally run, skip, dance and jump around during photo sessions—they’re kids! To avoid unnecessary aggravation, let them be comfortable in the clothes and opt for apparel that accentuates their natural energy. Skirts, scarves, and knit sweaters allow for natural movement, so when the kids start getting wild, their clothes will look even better.
Layers and textures and can really add depth to your photos. Look for clothes and accessories with rich, simple detailing—embroidery, tweed, ribbons, etc—or layer pieces to add dimension and texture. Texture is especially important if you want a lot of black and white shots, which naturally need more visual depth and detail than color images. Also, because you’ll want to keep the pace going during your session, layering is a great way to make quick, convenient outfit changes—pull off the sweater, slip on the vest and you’ve got a whole new look!
You’ll have these pictures for generations—don’t date yourself! Choose classic, timeless pieces, or even vintage apparel and accessories. Opt for the latest trends and you may feel otherwise about that amazing outfit in a few years (or even a few months) from now.
