What is a lifestyle photographer? - Part 2


Part 2

I am a Kingston based photographer. This is my second blog on being a lifestyle photographer. Here I want to continue to explain what a lifestyle photographer does?


A lifestyle photographer photographs people. Who they are, their accomplishments, their goals, and their relationships.


Lifestyle photography is a type of photography that aims to capture important moments in peoples lives. The primary goal of these photos is to tell something about the subject. A lifestyle photographer draws from many disciplines of photography such as fitness photography, portrait photography, maternity photography, family photography, and engagement and wedding photography. In addition I cover sports photography, fashion photography, commercial photography, even street photography.


Everyone has a story. Everyone has interesting aspect in their lives. My job is to capture that. I photograph important events, as well as everyday events. I photograph people with their families and partners. I photograph activities. Rather than take photographs that are posed and awkward I photograph what is important in your life. I am always on the lookout for special moments to capture.

Lifestyle photography covers a lot of ground.



Set 2 - Maternity photography, family photography, wedding and engagement photography.


What important events have happened within your personal life.

1)Maternity photography. There are many important events in a person’s life. Without a doubt maternity has to be one of the big ones. I had shot Destiny many times in the past but I was particularly flattered when she asked me to do a maternity shoot. This type of shot requires a lot of trust on the part of the client. I think the photo captures a special level of peacefulness and serenity.


2)Newborn photography. Newborns don’t stay newborns for long. They grow up very quickly. This is a photo of baby Alex at two and half months.


3)Family photography. This is a photo of young toddler Maya. She was about two and a half when I took this photo. Her parents and I had gone for a walk. She was curious about who I was and what I was doing and turned out to be an excellent subject.


4)Family photography. Sometimes the best shots just happen. As a photographer I had better be ready. We were in the middle of a family shoot. The mom had stepped away for a moment to get changed when I shot this photo of the dad and his small son sharing a laugh. When I work with families I like to start off with a plan. But as the session progresses we often depart from that plan as everybody begins to relax. Often times that is when I get the best shots.


5)More family photography. Here is another shot of a dad and his young son. I was photographing in a gym that day. He came by with his son to see how things were going. They stepped in front of the backdrop for a couple of shots. The best part of this photo is the look that they are sharing.


Wedding photography is a category all to itself

6)Wedding photography deserves its own blog entry. Here I am just touching on wedding photography. I like to catch special moments before they disappear. I was shooting a wedding in Mexico. The wedding party was just heading down to the beach for the ceremony. The bride was a few steps ahead of everyone when she turned around to look at her husband to be. The look of excitement on everyones face couldn’t be planned.

I am a Kingston based lifestyle photographer. I cover all of southern and eastern Ontario. Let me tell your story.
