Remember your last family photo shoot? The time spent shopping and coordinating outfits, attempting to schedule the session between naps, worrying that your children wouldn't "perform" for the camera. NO MORE!
Documentary 'Day in the Life' sessions are the best family photography sessions for your family because they fit into YOUR life, not the other way around. It's a candid and unscripted way of photographing your family, which means more time focused on each other and less time worrying about being perfect for the camera. Less stress and beautiful photos of the everyday memories that will mean the most years down the road is a win in my books!
Here are my 8 reasons you'll LOVE a family documentary photography session!
1. DISCOVER HOW YOUR EVERYDAY IS EXTRAORDINARY
Because sometimes it's hard to see the beauty in your daily life, 'Day in the Life' sessions will show you how your ordinary is extraordinary!
2. CAPTURE UNIQUE PERSONALITIES
By focusing on each other rather than the camera, your true personalities will shine through!
3. YOUR KIDS ARE FREE TO BE THEMSELVES
You won't get that pre-shoot anxiety worrying that your kids will misbehave because there's zero pressure for them to act a certain way.
4. SEEING EVERYDAY PHOTOS OF YOURSELF WITH YOUR CHILDREN ALLOW YOU TO CELEBRATE THE CRAZY JOURNEY OF PARENTING
When you're having one of those days, you can look at your photographs and laugh at the crazy because sometimes we just need a way to survive the daily grind!
5. DOCUMENT MEMORIES THAT MAY GO LONG FORGOTTEN
Your sons favourite stuffy, your husbands famous pancakes, the dress your daughter refused to take off for a month... These types of photographs help you remember this season of life, not that time you dressed up for that photo shoot in the park.
6. CREATE ART WITH YOUR FAMILY
The photographs you'll receive are true works of art meant for your walls and albums. Each photo is composed in an interesting way and light is used to highlight the moment. These are not your normal everyday snapshots. They are thoughtfully taken with every element in the environment considered before the photographer decides to push down on that shutter button.
7. EASY TO SCHEDULE
These sessions fit right into your daily life, no need to clear the calendar. If you need to go grocery shopping or wash the cars, me and my camera will be right there alongside you!
8. FINALLY MOM GETS TO BE IN SOME PHOTOS!
In many cases, mom is the family photographer. This means she's rarely in any photos with her children that aren't grainy selfies. Children will be gifted authentic photographs of their mother caring for them, something that's absolutely priceless.
