Elena believes that it is even harder to execute a successful lifestyle session. There are two types of connections you want to create in lifestyle sessions: connection between the subjects you are photographing and connection with the viewer. Lifestyle family sessions can be chaotic and there are a lot of subjects to manage. Light is often the first element that draws a viewer into a photograph. Location and Environment have a huge impact on the end result of a lifestyle photograph. As soon as the human body is in motion it relaxes.
- Lifesytle photograpy means going far and beyond capturing what the family looks like but capturing who the family is.
- It is even harder execute a successful lifestyle session.
- Make sure to ask about each family member.
