Why Lifestyle/Documentary photography?

If the idea of having photos that truly transport you to a moment in time speaks to you, then lifestyle/documentary photography might just be a good match. This style of photography allows you to capture the essence of your life, whether it be your everyday moments as a family, welcoming your new baby home, or perhaps your favourite things to do as a couple.

What is a lifestyle/documentary photoshoot like?

Here’s what you can expect from our photoshoot together.

My goal is to preserve this time in your life, people that matter, places that matter and the small things that make your world unique. Before your shoot I’ll be in touch to find about more about you. This helps me to plan for your session. Maybe your child has dimples just like their grandma, or has just cracked their first tooth. Let’s capture the things that are important to you.

We’ll figure out the best location for your shoot. You might want to capture your memories at home, or perhaps there’s a place you go that is meaningful to you. We’ll also have a chat about some activities for your shoot. Maybe you love to bake, do you have a favourite game or are you getting a nursery ready for a new arrival? This is all a part of your story and memory making. 

On the day of your session I’ll meet you at your location. I’ll photograph as you go and give you a few ideas or tips along the way. 

These type of shoots give you images that you will want to look back on in years to come. These photos transport you to a feeling or moment that truly matters.  Our photoshoot is all about slowing down and recognizing the magic in your everyday moments.
