What is lifestyle photography?

In 2011, as I was working on building my portfolio I was also working on finding my "style". I struggled trying to define my niche because by doing so I felt like I was limiting myself. I love photographing teens preparing to conquer the world, couples as they begin their lives together, sweet baby fingers and toes, but I can not stop there. I want to continue to capture the entire family as it continues to grow and the many special moments the future holds. Instead of defining my photography by the subjects I photograph I would like to define it by the little glimpses that I can document. Capturing the relationships and personalities in an artistic manner. Lifestyle photography is more of a journalistic approach full of emotion. The favorite gems I find in my camera are not always the ones with the proper lighting and perfect focus but the ones in which the moment continues to warm your heart with each gaze.
