Here are a few of my favourite photos taken from Heike's newborn shoot. I also took Heike's big sister - Hanna's newborn photos a few years back and was delighted to hear that I would see the family again.
This time in a new house, it was an honour for me to capture more special memories for the family.
That is why I love lifestyle photography. You don't just capture beautiful photos of the children, but with your home as a backdrop, you capture a little bit of history.
In a few years, this family might still be in the same home or even in yet another house, town or even country (hopefully not!), but you get the idea. As Heraclitus (a Greek philosopher) said: "Change is the only constant in life".
They will look at these photos and say "oh you guys were so little - do you remember that house" or "man we had fun in that garden...".
Lifestyle photography is a way of capturing moments and a little bit of history in a non-obtrusive and natural manner and capturing timeless images for everyone to enjoy years from now.
