What is Contemporary Photography?

Contemporary photography highlights the importance of storytelling and emotion, and there is a great importance placed on relationships. Also called lifestyle photography, this style is not only about how you capture, but also what you capture - "more moments in time" as opposed to "manufactured illusions." A contemporary photograper is just as likely to photograph a child's tantrum as thier big, toothy smile. Contemporary portraits are meant not only to capture one's likeness, but actually to reflect one's personalities - tantrums, daydreams, goofiness, quirks, and all.

A common response to this type of photography is often the joy of recognition; you hear a mom say, "That's so him!" or "Look at that! I love how we laugh together." Instead of being told to sit still, children are told to play, to be free, and to interact with each other naturally.
