Documentary Family Photography

What is it?

Documentary family photography is your life, unscripted. Capturing each moment as it unfolds. In your home. In your backyard. In places that are meaningful to you and doing activities that you enjoy doing. 

Who's it for?

This is for those who want something different. Something real. Something authentic.

For those who don't like having their photo taken (every family has some of those, mine included!)

For anyone who finds family portraits stressful or unpleasant.

Why choose this type of photography?

It's natural. It fits into your schedule. It's easy. There are no directions to follow. You don't have to worry about what you are going to wear. Your routine essentially remains unchanged as we do things that your family likes to do or does all the time. Best of all, the kids have a blast because they are engaged and having fun.

Why choose me as your photographer?

I'm a pretty open minded, easy going person. I can fit in anywhere. It takes a lot to surprise me so you don't have to worry about putting on a face or  hiding any of your family quirks from me. In fact, let's celebrate them! If your place is a mess, who cares?! Dessert for breakfast, breakfast for dinner? Right-on! If your kid wakes up and decides they want to wear their halloween costume in the middle of July, I'm on board. That is them. They will only be like this for a short period of time so let's capture it. Let's celebrate you being YOU!

What will I get out of a session?

I offer various packages that include a planning consultation, sessions based on 1 or 2 hours or half days, and something tangible because in this era of digital files, it's nice to receive something you can actually see and feel!

Of course, I am always willing to provide a custom quote if you have something unique in mind that doesn't quite fit within these packages.

What else?

As a parent, you'll get a glimpse into a world you don't often see because you're so engrossed in it. You will get to see how others see you or how you've never seen yourself before.

You'll have treasured memories of your family just as you are at this moment in time. Your family will change. Dynamics will change.  It's impossible for us to remember it all. My goal is to capture it so you can look back for years to come.
