I’m a portrait photographer, technically, but I think I’ve always been a bit of a lifestyle photographer. I’ve never been a fan of posed photography, have always preferred catching people in candid moments, doing what they love to do. That definitely bleeds over into my photography style. I may place people where I want them, but I try to let them “pose” themselves. Then they feel and look more natural and we capture real moments.
When it comes to photographing kids, lifestyle photography is sometimes all I can do. I just follow them around with the camera and catch them in their natural state. The result is generally a true picture of their beautiful, sweet personalities.
