What Is Lifestyle Family Photography


Looking for something different? Wonder what all these photographers mean by “lifestyle”? This is the blog for you- a quick read on what lifestyle photography is and one of my favorite families on the planet.

What Is Lifestyle Family Photography

Woodlands Family Photography

THIS. This is lifestyle family photography. It is organic, natural and wild. It is spending unhurried time together with your family. It is finding a photographer that does more than takes pictures- it’s someone who is an artist.
Sure, we will try to get pictures of everyone looking at the camera and smiling. But my goal is to build a relationship with you, help you feel comfortable, and capture the unique personalities of the people in your family.
It is connections. The way your oldest guides your younger child on a journey to pick flowers. Or the way your spouse still looks at you after all these years. The history in the space between you and everything that makes your family what it is.
Lifestyle photography is more free and open. Your photographer will guide you and help pose you, but most of what you will see are moments that happen between the posing.

It’s really incredible to be able to trust your photographer and let moments happen. The results are so authentic and different.

This family- oh man. They have a special place in my heart. They have trusted me for years. To work with a family for 10 years…to document their growing up…their joys and the imperfect journey that is life. I’m not even sure how I get to say this is my job, but I’m immeasurably blessed. I’m looking at the person who encouraged me to chase my dream of becoming a photographer. One of the first people to say, “Hey, you can do this”. I hope these same words echo in your ear today. I hope you can feel my hug around your neck and that gentle whisper of, “you can do this”. You are doing this. When you look at these images, I pray that all you see is the goodness and love poured into the sweet spirits that run up and down the your hallway. That you can feel their laughter in your bones and know that YOU ARE DOING THIS. Perfectly imperfect.

It's time to connect

I want to get to know you are the incredible journey you are on.

Let's grab a cup of coffee and talk about what you are looking for.
