I am extremely passionate about documentary family photography and I believe that A Day in the Life sessions are really important to tell our story in the most authentic way. Most of us do a great job of documenting extraordinary outings, celebrations, and milestones, forgetting that in many ways, our most cherished memories are derived from everyday moments. It can be difficult to step back and appreciate the beauty of the life as we experience or observe it day in and day out, but the fact is that our daily activities do change – sometimes incrementally and imperceptibly.
A Day in the Life is a beautiful way to capture the rituals and routines that are so easy to take for granted (but are gone before we know it). I must confess I was quite nervous when one of my best friends wanted to do a session with me. I know this family for a long time now and love their kids like my own. So it was a great responsibility, not only to portrait their lives but also their personalities in the best way I could.
My favourite images are the kind that tell a story about the people in them. The kind of images that aren’t just pretty and technically perfect, but the kind that make the person looking at them FEEL something.
I hope you like them as much as me.
If you want to give a family documentary session a try, or if you have any questions about these types of sessions, please drop me a note – I’d love to continue the conversation.
