Family Lifestyle Portraits

Some of you blog faithfuls might recognize this cute little family from a few months back. Well, I had a chance to visit them again, but this time I was trying out a different approach. I wanted to do an indoor Lifestyle Session. These are more commonly done outside as the kids run free and the parents chase them and try to get them to stand still. In a "Lifestyle Session" you are essentially letting the kids be kids and incorporating elements from their day to day life. There are no back drops, or props or poses, just getting the kids to open up and relax.
The best stage for this type of photography is between the ages of 1 and 5. Basically between the ages where they first start to walk and where they really understand how bribery works. Of course Lifestyle photography is great at any age (adults included), but where it really shines is with children.
