Lifestyle Portraits

People often ask, "What is a Lifestyle Portrait?"

A lifestyle portrait is an image that tells information about the subject's lifestyle through their environment or how they interact with their environment. The subject's personality shines through. The pictures becomes timeless. It differs from traditional studio portraits because it is not posed or contrived. Sometimes these types of portraits cause anxiety and awkwardness. The lifestyle portrait is spontaneous, and unique to the subject and its environment. The setting could be at a favorite hangout, a family room or yard, a neighborhood park, a beach, or any place that has significance to the subject. 

Families are shown interacting with each other in a natural way, a way of recording the family in an authentic, real way. A son's smile to his father. A  little ballerina twirling in front of her bedroom mirror. Brothers sharing an inside joke. A kiss on the cheek from a fiancĂ©. These images can be very beautiful--- a classic.
