Lifestyle Photography

Lifestyle Photography is the challenge this week at I heart Faces.

Shooting the moment.

I_Heart_Faces_noborder_125x100 No posing.

Keeping it real.

I sort of {kind of} love that style.

Candid moments are moments filled with love.

Perfectly beautiful.

Just like your life.

Sure, it might not look technically perfect.

They might not be smiling.

The hair on their heads might be a smidge out of place.

Your living room might have toys strewn about.

They are still beautiful moments-

because they are yours.

Your wild, wonderful moments.

slicec of life i heart

Real is beautiful.

My friend Susan Keller wrote a superb post about achieving this style. Be sure to check it out if you need some inspiration!

Incredible photo! It just stirs up all sorts of feelings. It's a bit nostalgic and dreamy and very lovely. I really love candid shots as well. I think they take a lot of talent, which you definitely have my dear!

Love that, Becky! But really, a LOT of what you do is "lifestyle photography"... you capture family and friends as they are while absolutely unveiling their beauty to the world. You could have written that tutorial, because you do it so well...

Amber said...

What a beautiful moment you captured. :)

Awesome shot, Rebeckah! The lights from the street lamps and the cars are angled perfectly at the couple, which leads your eyes directly to them. Nice example of leading lines. You truly rocked this one!

I don't think I have ever seen a challenge where you are not in the first 10 posts! Fun shot and I agree, perfection is not what is best, capturing the perfect moment is. I usually have a mountain of laundry in the back ground of the pictures around our house. My kids are going to look back and think I never folded laundry. Oh wait, I don't!

Karin said...

Hey Becky~ I really like your b/w shot and the composition of it. Loved your friend Susan's post on IHF! Thanks for ALLl the encouragement you offer to so many many of us! It was a blessing to meet you this past summer and I hope to see you again! I couldn't agree more about the beauty of lifestyle photography! I'm inspired by both your pic and her post!
