“When I see your photos, I feel like I am there.”
My friend said that to me one afternoon. And I know just what she is talking about because I did it on purpose. Actually, it’s a photography style that we call Lifestyle.
Lifestyle Shows You In a More Natural State. Annnnd, it’s my favorite, so I think you should know about it. Lets break it down into the two basic parts.

The idea is that we capture a little glimpse into the way you live your life. A look through the window at you and your loved ones.
But more than just showing how you look, lifestyle photography is about showing the way it feels to be you. This is my favorite part you guys. The part where we get to see your soul shining through the images.

So where does the style part come in? This is all about setting the scene. Styling. Just a little tidying up, opening the blinds and some pretty berry lipstick can take your photos to that ethereal next level.
Is it how your place actually looks? Probably not (please don’t say its just me), but it is the way your mind will remember the way it felt to be there.
Peace. Joy. Light and Life—that’s what a little styling can tease out of your everyday life.
These photos of Katie and Rose were taken at the Granite Bay Library. Katie vollunteers for the library and they often go to storytime. It shows who they are by showing us what they do.
And that brings me to a key for these sessions: activity.
It really makes for a beautiful dynamic when you and your loved ones are involved in an actvity. Reading Books. Making Cookies. Picking Flowers, or Apples. Snuggling. Really, it can be almost anything.. and don’t worry we will brainstorm this together my friend.
So now you know what to call these kinds of photos. And if you’re like me and they just make your heart all abuzz, then let’s book you a session.
