First Venture into Lifestyle Photography

While I'm no stranger to taking gobs of photos of my darling nephew, a couple of weeks ago I did my first real family shoot of my brother's little family. I haven't done much for lifestyle photography but now I find myself drawn to it. Like photojournalism, you're essentially doing the same thing; trying to tell people's story through photographs. 

The hardest thing I found about this shoot (other than getting my nephew to briefly hold still) was posing people, because it's not something I'm quite used to. Also, editing. I was trying to give my photos a sort of matte look and hopefully I was somewhat successful. 

I'm looking forward to doing more lifestyle work because I think it'll help with my creativity and composition areas I have plenty of room to improve in. 

Anyways, hope you like some of the shots I got of these kids.
