I absolutely love lifestyle photography and aspire to become a great lifestyle photographer one day. I adore Tara Whitney. Her photos are brilliant. I love how well she captures the simplest moments between families. Those are the moments I want to capture too. I’m constantly practicing my lifestyle shooting skills.
This summer I did a sprinkler shoot with my kids and I LOVE the end result. No posing. It was just them playing, having fun and you can see their little personalities. These are the things I want to remember about them. Sure I love a good portrait, but the real stuff is my passion.
Here’s what I captured.
These are also part of my monthly portrait challenge because I just love them so darn much.
We do a lot of crafting and projects around here. The kids love it all and get really excited about it, so I thought this month I would take their portraits while they were doing one of their favorite things.
Hopefully I’ll be able to shoot their March portraits outside.
Here are the portraits of the kids for January. I didn’t take any of Jeremy or I, but the month isn’t over yet, so it may still happen.
I love this one of Harper. She was playing by the backdoor and the light was really pretty. My favorite part is her hair. She’s always walking around with crazy, messy hair. I actually got a few really good ones of her and had a hard time deciding which one to choose.
And this one of Hudson totally depicts his age right now. He’s growing out of the toddler stage and into the bigger kid stage. He’s gotten more into playing learning games on our phones and asks to play a lot more lately. At least they’re learning games…I guess.
I decided on black and white because I don’t do a lot of black and white. I used to all the time and I’m not sure why I veered away from it.
Oh, and I didn’t edit these. They’re right out of the camera.
