Are you getting kind of tired of the same old boring portraits? I get it. I totally do. That’s why I just love shooting Lifestyle Children’s Portraits. Lifestyle is a more recent addition to portrait photography, with more and more photographers offering what are called “lifestyle sessions.” Lifestyle sessions are more about finding locations that speak to you and your family, and more about the connections instead of the poses. This session is a partial lifestyle photography shoot.
While the girls did receive some direction and some of it was posed, for a lot of the time we were just having the two girls interacting and joking with each other. We are lucky enough to know a family friend with an acreage and some old cars our near Vulcan, which he very kindly agreed to haul out to the middle of his fields so we could achieve these shots. The reason these images are more posed rather than a full out lifestyle session is because with the harsh light at the time of day, I did insist on bringing my mobile studio light. This means the kids had to stay close to the locations we chose, so we could utilize that light. My daughter keeps saying how she wants to be like her dad and fix cars – so this is what we did!
Lifestyle Children’s Portraits
Lifestyle portraits are designed to really show off the personalities of those in your family. These sessions can take place outdoors at a location of your choosing, or even in your home. We provide minimal guidance for posing for these sessions, and really allow them to evolve organically. We encourage families to participate in activities they enjoy together.
Lifestyle Children’s Portraits work the same way – especially with siblings! We encourage those connections that bring us closer to our siblings to create images you and your children will cherish for a lifetime.
