Why have a "Lifestyle" Photo Shoot?
I think we've just about all had those family photos in a portrait studio that gave us images still stuck in the 80's and 90's that should be added to the "awkward family photo" website...you know what I'm talking about! While many studios have made strides at becoming more modern and we have some amazing photographers who shoot in studio and their images are very impressive, most of us are quite intimidated to stand or sit in front of a camera that feels way to close to us! This is why I love giving my clients a little breathing room in the outdoors or at another location that is not so formal to have a relaxed experience in front of my camera. The first time meeting with someone who is going to point a very intimidating lens at you can be a little scary, so I love having my clients be able to pretend I'm not there and just be, just be together as friends or family while they get used to the idea that having their photos taken can actually be a fun experience. I feel that I can capture a little of your natural "lifestyle", your way of interacting, moving, feeling, when you have just a little space to breathe!
