I can watch Lifestyle photographs for hours because I am in love with a Lifestyle photography. I do it for my family and hope one day I will start doing these sessions for my clients. Taking pictures of my husband and son doing what they do. I do not setting up a shot or asking them to look at me. While I realize that I do not live with my clients and do not have this opportunity to actually capture their life, but when I take the pictures for them I try to capture them as natural as possible by having them do things they enjoy and that they would typically do. This could be hanging out at home, going to their favorite coffee shop, beach or bookstores they frequently go. It might be that special moment, when dad play sports with his children at their favorite park or mom reading a book or singing a song to her kids or they can bake cookies together. I want to capture their life when they are completely aware of each other and not aware of me. Hopefully, one day I will have this privilege to document moments and activities for my clients that they are going to remember forever just as I am doing it for my family right now.

Placerita Canyon Nature Center , Santa Clarita CA
It was beautiful Sunday afternoon when Philip and his father went hiking in Placerita Canyon. It was a long hike that lead to a seasonal waterfall that was dry at this time of year. On the way to the waterfall they discovered a pool of bubbling white oil. The good thing about hiking with Dad is that you get to see things that you not normally see.
