A STORYTELLING SESSION is a short session designed to capture a specific, important happening in your family’s story. These can take place at your home or at a location that is meaningful to you. In contrast to a day in the life sessions, these are short and sweet so therefore will usually have a little bit more guidance from me than the more extended sessions. Still fun and relaxed though, with no stiff poses or awkward smiles.
Two weeks before your session I will touch base via phone or e-mail to discuss your normal routine and decide on a start time for your session. At this time I will also provide you with my Complete Family Questionnaire to fill out with all your family’s details including things about your home, and your children you never want to forget. This information will ensure we are all on the same page for a smooth, relaxed session and it helps me anticipate the parts of your child’s personality that you want to remember the most.
You can expect your online gallery in a couple of weeks (for video is around 3-6 weeks) after our session. Your gallery is password protected and you can choose and purchase which prints, digital files, albums and canvas wraps you want there and then, unless you have already chosen a package.
Your images will be artfully edited. These will include a variety of family pictures, environmental portraits, actions shots and documentary images as your life unfolds.
A DAY IN THE LIFE SESSION is the perfect opportunity for your family to reconnect with one another. Think of me as a friend coming over to hang out and I’m just bringing my camera with me. I won’t be shooting the whole time, but instead I will be picking moments to
document as I see them. Expect lots of tears and laughs afterwards when you get to see just how wonderful your life together is through a whole new perspective. I’m
with you for about 4-10 hours (depending on your collection), which gives you plenty of time to do your normal routine while I’m there.
I am incredibly passionate about documentary family photography and believe that A Day in the Life sessions are so important to tell our story most authentically. 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 challenging 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 gradually. 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).
Imagine being able to go back and re-live a day in your childhood with your parents. To see the house you lived in, hear the laughter, and feel that love again. Let’s create that for your children.
I want to see your life the way it truly is. Forget the awkward poses, and forced smiles. Let’s let the kids roll around in the mud and take pictures of that! Ok maybe not that, but let’s not be afraid to show your real selves doing the things that you do together as a family. Let’s capture all the in-between moments, the life you’re living today, right now, and create a beautiful, priceless work of art out of it (you can leave that last part to me).
A FILM is an ultimate keepsake for your family. It’s pressing pause on this one day to record your family’s memories and have the ability to replay them any time that you like.
I offer the possibility to print all the pictures of your session in a beautiful box and also a personalised book from the best crafters of the photography industry - Queensberry Albums.
