What Is Family Photojournalism?

Family photojournalism — also referred to as visual storytelling or documentary photography — has much less to do with coordinating clothing and sitting for a portrait… and much more to do with celebrating and capturing what is beautiful in your ordinary life.

I come into a family’s (messy and gloriously imperfect!) home for the day (no set time such) while you are doing all your normal stuff together as a family. No one is asked to stop and look at the camera or even to smile, nothing staged or cheesy. Instead, as you play and work together i’m there silently creating a series of images that tell a story about your family’s life together. this can be done to mark a transition, to document a life season that is fleeting, or just because you want to create and capture priceless memories that will otherwise become a distant passing.

Why Would You Want A Day In The Life Session? 

Because life, especially family life is precious and moments pass us so quickly, we take for granted our time with family and we hardly capture precious moments anymore due to the modern nature of life.

A Day In The Life sessions are designed to capture the quirky wonder that is your particular family. They are the images that get more precious with time. you’ll be able to sit down and look at them in years gone by and remember the texture of your children’s hair when they were kids, and that particular facial expression your son or daughter made when playing at home, the way that your house was decorated when you had only just moved in, and the fashion choices you made then that have changed over the years. These are the sorts of images that when your kids will look back on them as adults, they’ll be plunged into a sea of remembrance, researching their personal histories in the myriad details of the each photograph.

So through the eyes of my camera, I hope you’ll be able to see with fresh perspective the incredible life you’ve been given to live and the beauty of the people with whom you’re sharing it.
