Document your everyday... because nothing is better than real life.
Documentary photos tell the stories of your life.
Your baby's birth is the ultimate documentary story. It's a story that every mom remembers forever. The STORY of the day your baby arrived. Who was there? What did things look like? How did your husband take care of you? How emotional it was to meet this new miracle. And all small details. Those memories fade but photos help you remember the tiny wrinkles, big yawns, who cried, & how excited but tired you were. A birth is a day FULL of details and photographing births and all those details has been my *specialty* since 2011.
Documentary stories are for your everyday, not only for birth.
Your daily routines are your everyday stories. Those routines will be the memories of their childhood - school mornings, weekend chores, family dinners, and bedtime rituals. Those routines will be etched in their minds. And as your kids grow, so do the routines, and one day these routines will be over. Those kids who wanted to hear bedtime stories on your lap will head out on their own and you will wish for bedtime stories again. Time moves so fast. Photographing your everyday life gives you the little memories forever, and a history to pass down to the kids.
Rethink your family photos this year.
So this year, consider skipping matching clothes posing in a pretty field. That doesn't document life and personalities and relationships. Let your kids be themselves and wear their favorite superhero cape and socks that don't match. Ditch the tie because your husband's favorite paint stained t-shirt is perfect. Don't stress if a kid is pouting, it makes for a great photo. Someone being in time-out is expected (and cute in photos!) The laundry can be piled on the couch and toys can be all over the living room. This is your home! Dust will not show up in your photos. A storytelling session can't get easier!! Do nothing but let me spend some time with you. Let your family be themselves... in the place they love, with the people they love, doing the things they love.
Your everyday moments matter.
Every year is a new chapter in your family's story. Don't let those stories pass you by because in a blink, you'll be sending graduation announcements for that toddler and watching them leave for college. Let's document your REAL family. You'll never want a family photo in a field again. Let's talk about a storytelling session.
