What are the types of lifestyle photography?
There are a few overarching categories for lifestyle photography.
Location — in-home, in-studio and outdoor.
Subject — family, food, culture, business, landscape
Purpose — memories, marketing, social media
What are the benefits of lifestyle photography
Lifestyle photography as a whole is more true to life than typical portrait photography. It captures families, businesses and cultures in everyday life.
As for the types of photography, each category has different benefits. Location depends on whether or not you would like photos in your own house or if a studio setup might work better.
For instance, if you want a session focused on your out-of-home life, outdoor photos or images taken in a social engagement may create a better backdrop for your particular session.
What can I expect with lifestyle photography?
In-home and studio photography are more controlled, because the space is ours to choose and change as we like. We can prepare the lighting and layout to achieve a specific look. The same is true for professional and brand photography.
However, in outdoor or social sessions, the photoshoot will likely be more dynamic. In this case, be prepared to go with the flow. We will make sure to get as close to your vision as possible.
