A Day in the Life | Documentary Family Photography

A Day in the Life session is where I literally follow you around for the entire day. Literally. Haven’t you always wanted a photographer to follow you around all day?? I have!! There have been many times I wished I had someone documenting my life – family vacations so that I could enjoy the trip rather than lug the camera, milestones like birthday parties, and even just everyday moments – because I want to be IN the photos, not just behind the camera all the time. As a photographer, obviously, I am always behind the camera, but as a mother too, I think this is something most moms struggle with. There are never enough photos with Mom in them. And so, I am offering these special sessions for people who love their lives and want to record it posterity! Ideally, the Day in the Life session should be done every year and after a few years, your shelf will begin to get filled with albums of each wonderful day.

Ever wonder what life looks like for other families? Other families with twins?? Here is a small peak at the photos from a recent Day in the Life session. We danced, we played dress up, we colored with chalk and blew bubbles, we woke Daddy up twice!, we played at the park and went for a walk, we snuggled, we giggled, we cried, we hugged and made up, we bathed and read stories and went to sleep. This sweet family was a pleasure to be with! Enjoy 🙂
