Lifestyle photography is a varying balance between photojournalism and classic portraiture, and depending on your photographer, may lean towards the former or the latter. For me, the magic of lifestyle photography is the ability to capture life as you’re living it, to tell your story.

The images from a lifestyle session remind you not just of what everyone looked like that day, but how life felt at that moment.

It captures all the unexpected moments that can’t help but make you smile. Most of our lives go unscripted and not posed.

The most magical moments happen when no one is looking, when it’s just you, being you. The little giggles and wrinkled noses when your little one thinks you’re the world’s best comedian or the sideway glance when they decide you’re actually not. The disapproving look from mom when dad plays airplane with baby just a little higher than she’d like. The little head peaking around your legs when he or she is just not sure.

These special moments, they are the in-between moments that matter most. These are the moments you feel. This is lifestyle photography.

At Victoria Z Photography I am passionate about documenting both the special moments as well as the little moments in between.

I offer special moments lifestyle sessions including maternity, birth, newborn and family but I am also inspired by the spontaneous sessions that capture real life – a pillow fight at home, making breakfast in your pajamas, or even a first visit to the zoo.

As I meet new clients, I inevitably fall in love with their beautiful crazy lives, and clients quickly become friends. Let me capture your story, let me capture the magic of your real life.

“Victoria recently took some shots of my 9 month old and immediately became my favorite photographer of all time . She was accommodating, patient, friendly and had a super SUPER quick turnaround.

Her pricing is EXTREMELY reasonable. And most importantly, the photos were beautiful – true to color and captured our girl perfectly!

I have already inquired about our next session with her and recommend her to anyone who will listen. You will not be disappointed!”

Life moves full speed. Sometimes faster than we would like.

It’s my job to capture those fleeting moments and turn them into lifelong memories during our photo shoot.

Whether it is documenting the newest arrival to your family, celebrating along with you for your little one’s first birthday or even capturing the entire extended family to reminisce on photographs for years to come, it’s my desire to experience it with you.

I am a natural light photographer with a fun, simple and timeless approach to photography. My style is clean, fresh and always classic.

Each story is unique, just like your family, and always documented out of love.

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
— Aaron Siskind

“Amy! I just finished looking through all the wonderful pictures from our fall session, and I just had to take a moment to THANK YOU!!!! From your endless patience with the kiddos to your hours spent editing…none of it goes unnoticed. I’m beyond grateful for the memories you capture for my family” -Laura Bassil

“Thank you Amy for these precious photos of our family. It was so hard to pick a favorite! Thank you for being so patient and laid back with my boys. You make photo sessions easy” -Lisa Englert
