Documentary Family Session
This is how my husband and I capture our life - and it's so beautiful! Therefore, I have decided to partake in this out-of-the-box, story-telling documentary family session (often referred to as 'Day in the life' session) as I follow you and your family in an activity-directed session. You ask, "what do you mean activity-directed?" I mean: making brownies or DIY pizza night, pool day or first time at the beach (I'll get in the water with the kidos, camera and all!), first haircut, water balloon wars, park/splash pad day, picnic at the park/backyard/beach/wherever, museum day, whatever you have in mind - even for newborn!. Messy hair, dirty feet, and happy hearts welcome! Best part: you can wear whatever you want! This session follows no agenda and is meant to capture natural, genuine and FUN moments of what makes you and your family so beautifully unique!
Now, you're thinking: why in the world would I want to do a documentary photo shoot?! Here's a few reasons to consider:
Capture the time before it passes you by. Do you know how many times I hear moms (including mine) say 'Wow times flies. It seems like yesterday you were an itty bitty baby and now you're such a big kid.' Heck, my own mom says it to me, but more in the like, 'How did I go from having two beautiful and wild babies to now being a grandmother so quickly?' And it's true: it does and will go so fast you may miss it if you blink.
No expectations. This takes the pressure off of you and your family to look like the poster perfect family because, let's be real, there is no such thing. This takes away the candy/ice cream/toy bribes for toddler just for that "one shot" that says very little about your family other than cleaning up well and taking a portrait at the park. Seriously, how often do you pile on top of one another and rustle in the leaves at a park in real life? Leave the traditional photo session for the Holiday cards.
Natural and comfortable. This is not the type of session that requires elaborate set-ups with large props and even larger, blinding lights and flashes at a studio where your curious kids may get into things they shouldn't. Nope. This is unapologetically you at home where said curious kids get into the very bottom of their toy bin - or the dog crate to nap with your fur babies. Whatever.
The little moments. Having me in your home of half or an entire day may seem like a daunting thing. You may think there isn't anything that epic happening all the time to document. This is where you have to see it from another angle. The small, unnoticed moments that happen naturally sometimes make for the most compelling, pulling-at-your-heart-string images.
