Why lifestyle portraiture?

We live in a world where nearly everyone has access to a camera any time they need one. Pull out your phone – how many photos have you taken in the last week? The last month? If you’re like most people, the answer is probably a pretty sizable number.

But when was the last time you took the time to create photographs which represent the history of your family? When was the last time you even had a photo printed?

I’m an older millennial (xennial, if you prefer…), but I grew up with family photo albums. Just over a generation later, we have billions of people who take trillions of photos, but leave no lasting trace behind.

In forty years, when current technology is obsolete, how will you and your children and grandchildren look back at the life you created?

There’s something magical about looking back from whence you came. There’s something reaffirming to see your parents and grandparents when they were young. It gives us a tangible connection to both the past and the future.

I strongly believe in the importance of lifestyle portraiture in order to help people document their lives.

It’s not about showing perfection – it’s about showing your life and your family as it is.

As the photographer, I do all of the hard work – from documenting your life as it is, to preparing the images, and even getting them printed or made into albums or holiday cards – you simply have to let me in on a little bit of this particular season in your life. And then sit back and enjoy the magic.
