Lifestyle Photography is the pretty and polished version of documentary photography and during a lifestyle session there is some direction and set-up done.
A lifestyle session revolves around doing something you love doing together, but it's set up and you look your best, the house is clean and everything in its place. I'll tell you where to sit or stand and what to do. I'll remove stray toys and stuff away to capture a more 'perfect' photo.
It's a posed session, but in such a way that it doesn't look posed. You'll do something you normally do, but it is directed and I'll capture it in such a way that it looks organic and true.
Lifestyle photography is the art of the everyday, it's a way of capturing you in real-life situations in an artistic manner.
