Lifestyle photography is a balance between photo journalism and classic portraiture, and depending on your photographer, may lean towards the former or the latter. For me, the magic of lifestyle photography is the ability to capture life as you’re living it, to tell your story. The images from a lifestyle session remind you not just of what everyone looked like that day, but how life felt at that moment. Everyone loves a good story.
It captures captures all the unexpected moments that can’t help but make you smile. Most of our lives go unscripted and unposed. Sure we all have a plan, but everyone knows - the more you plan, the more it seems to go haywire. That’s what makes life so exciting! The most magical moments happen when no one is looking, when its just you being you. The little giggles and wrinkled noses when your little thinks you’re the worlds best comedian or the sideway glance when they decide you’re actually not. The disapproving look from mom when dad plays airplane with baby just a little higher than she’d like. The little head peaking around your legs when he or she is just not sure. These special moments, they are the in-between moments that matter most. These are the moments you feel. This is lifestyle photography.

That all depends on you!
We can shoot at your home or on location. While I like to keep our sessions between 1 to 2 hours, it will ultimately depend on what works for you and your family. Nap time is always a crucial factor! The majority of your session will be unposed, however there is plenty of planning that goes on ahead of time to make sure take advantage of all of our time together. Once booked, I will email you a questionnaire to get all of the pertinent information for our session, including any special 'shots' or 'moments' you are hoping to capture. We will have opportunity for a few classic portraiture images, but the majority of the session will be simply documenting the subject as they are in the moment. I will help provide direction when needed, but it’s most important that the subject express themselves and let their personality show.
There are two packages for a lifestyle session - The Petite and the Standard. Please contact Victoria for more information.
