What is Documentary style Photography?

What is documentary style photography? Chances are if you’re planning a family or newborn portrait session you’ve been searching your local area for photographers. You’ve probably seen the terms “lifestyle, documentary, photojournalistic” when photographers describe their style and you may or may not understand what this even means. All of those terms really point to the same thing. Documentary means that there is less posing from the photographer and more interaction between the subjects.  One of things that people love when looking back through photo albums is remembering moments. Not poses. It’s fun to re-live why everyone is doubled over with laughter in a photo, or to remember a beautiful moment with a loved one, or maybe a cute face that your little one used to make when he or she was just a few weeks old. We love to create portraits that are natural and beautiful. Portraits should really show you or your families unique personality and make you want to relive that moment when you see the image.   That’s exactly what we do.  Armato Photography likes photographing you and your family in the moment.  We guide our clients into positions but we let you do the rest.   We want you comfortable in the moment and interacting with your loved ones like you do every other day. We are still able to capture some amazing candid moments while creating timeless portraits that everyone will love. We definitely like to interact with you and even have a few tricks up our sleeves to get those big laugh moments and to keep everyone comfortable in front of the camera.

When you’re ready to start creating your family portraits, give us a call and lets create something that generations will love!
