My Philosphy


DOCUMENTARY FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

Documenting your REAL.

 

Every family needs photography. Images that have truth and meaning, not just pretty pictures.

 

Truth

Family photos should be more than just everyone looking at the camera. It's about what really happens when no one is watching. 

Meaning

When you look back at your images I want them to represent the real meaning of family life, not an idealized one.

The pretty stuff

Portraits are still important, so amongst the storytelling images will be some beautiful portraits.

What I believe

 

For so long family photography has been about the posed portrait, everyone looking directly at the camera. While I love portraits and definitely take them, I feel like they don't always capture the reality of family life. We all know that family life can't be boxed into one beautiful posed image. Our lives are big, messy, crazy, happy, sad and beautiful. I believe all the in betweens of life are what you are going to want to look back on. The house you lived in, when tantrums were the norm, nappies were changed 10 times a day and just the general craziness of a young family.

What's a Day in the Life session?

 

Basically a Day in the Life session works around the idea of family photography in the most comfortable of places, your home.  Generally all of my shoots happen in the families home or a location that is meaningful. The idea is to capture your family just as they are, in all their glory. 

It's about documenting your family as they are, in the now, not dressed in their Sunday best (although it's totally fine to dress up), just how they are. This is such a stress free way of getting family photos. You won't be yelling at your kids to smile and you can just relax and be yourself. At the end of it, you will have some beautiful images to either hang on your wall, or even a beautiful photo book for the coffee table.

If this sounds like it's up your alley, find out more below, or book for a session.
