pure documentary style
Day in the Life Sessions capture your normal daily lives together (i.e grocery shopping, meal time, bed time, etc...). There is absolutely no influence from me whatsoever. I will only shoot with the light provided and I'll be everywhere, including close-up, high (if I can!) and on the floor. These sessions aren’t meant to be “pretty” or “tidy”. They’re meant to tell stories. They’re meant to be beautiful in what they reveal about your relationships.
It means not worrying about what you wear or whether the kids have demolished their lego tower and pieces are all over the floor. It's about capturing your humorous, loving, chaotic reality.
There will come a time when your kids are all grown up, and you’ll want to look back and see the lego explosion that was your family room floor and laugh about the chaos in your life “back then.”
Documentary with a twist
Hourly Documentary Sessions are based around activities that would be part of your ideal day. This style is commonly referred to as "Lifestyle Photography". My aim is to engage family members so that they interact with one another while not paying attention to the camera. These sessions are great for outdoor photos and ideal for anyone who wants to see natural moments evolve while enjoying fun times together.
Please keep in mind, I will ask you to choose some activities where you can connect together (baking, kites, picnics, balls) – anything that involves interacting with your loved ones.
