The idea behind a lifestyle Family Photosession



LIFESTYLE FAMILY PHOTOSESSION is a type of photography that captures candid and natural moments of a family in their everyday life. 


Unlike traditional family portraits that are posed and formal, lifestyle photography is focused on capturing the essence and personality of a family through their interactions, emotions, and environment.


The best place for such event is a family's home or a location that is meaningful to them, such as a park or beach. A photographer documents the family engaging in their daily routines, playing games, cookingsharing food together, talking, playing, or simply spending time together.




Lifestyle photography typically involves MINIMAL POSING and DIRECTION from the photographer, allowing the family to be themselves and interact naturally. The resulting images often have a RELAXED and CANDID feel and can be cherished as a reflection of the family's real life and connections.

15 ideas of activities during a Lifestyle photosession.

What is the best way to start feeling comfortable in front of the camera? The answer is simple: do things together and stop paying attention at a camera person. Think of activities your family usually do or always wanted to try. Brainstorm ideas.  Have a list or make a new one. Is there something you do together on weekends, every day, once a week or once a month? What makes your children happy?
