What are Day in the Life | Documentary Sessions?
Day in the Life or Documentary Photography Sessions focus on captured moments; not created moments. With this type of session, I will not pose you. Instead, I’ll be watching for true moments to capture of your everyday life.
Is this the same as a Lifestyle Session?
The short answer is no. Lifestyle sessions are an assortment of candid images of your family mixed with naturally posed shots. With documentary sessions, I will just be casually hanging out and documenting you and your family interacting and capturing the story as it unfolds.
Allow me to capture the ordinary wonderfulness of your life as it is right now!
My photography roots began with a career in photojournalism. I found immense joy getting to discover the communities I lived in while shooting for the local newspapers and having the opportunity to document people’s daily lives. That documentation of daily life is what I am now bringing to my portrait sessions – telling the stories of you and your family: Those every day simple things that we may take for granted. Those little moments that you will want to remember forever. The natural interactions of you with your family.
