Sometimes you get the best photos when they are unplanned, or candid. Photography doesn't have to be about what, where, and when. Photography should be enjoyable and relaxing. I love lifestyle photography because everyday brings something new and fresh.

This is a lifestyle photograph that I did a week ago. This kid is so photogenic, but if he does a posed smile, he has a growl, scowl, one eye open, squint, super hero, or tough guy look. I love to photograph my clients in the moment. I give this kid a cowboy hat, rope, and steer head, and -voilà- a beautiful lifestyle portrait. If a subject is photographed doing something they love, their expression is so much more real and natural. I believe that if a client is in a natural and relaxed setting, there is something magical that happens.
This was shot after sunset using:
