This is not your typical annual photosession

There will be no forced smiles, matching outfits, or frustration trying to get that "perfect" portrait, but really it is the luxury of time that makes Day in the Life sessions so enjoyable. I show up at your house the day before to meet your kids and or to put your husband/partner's mind at ease.  Then we do this thing.  Within the first two hours of the day, my camera becomes pretty invisible and life unfolds in a natural way.

Awesome Real moments

Not everyone wants their everyday, guaranteed-to-make-you-cry-happy-tears moments documented. But if you treasure those memories, let's chat. I'll bet you love it so much you'll come back for seconds.

“Before becoming a parent, I didn’t know I could ruin someone’s life by asking them to put pants on”

A Day in life session

An ordinary day has so many little moments worth documenting.  The way your littlest clings to your leg, carries a baby doll in each hand, or lays their head on your chest won't last forever.   

There are 365 days in a year and you just have to pick one.  I have documented super special days like a 1st birthday or anniversary, but any day you choose will be ordinary magic.

Luxury of time

  1. THERE IS NO RUSH.  WE HAVE AN ENTIRE DAY TO ALLOW YOUR FAMILY TO SPEND THE DAY TOGETHER WITHOUT PRESSURE TO PERFORM FOR THE CAMERA.

  2. NO DECISIONS ABOUT WHICH ACTIVITIES TO DOCUMENT, WE WILL DO THEM ALL.  MORNING SNUGGLES + BEDTIME ROUTINES, AND EVERYTHING IN-BETWEEN.

  3. AN ENTIRE DAY OF BEING TOGETHER.  THERE WILL BE GIGGLES, TEARS, A TIME-OUT OR TWO, BUT YOUR FAMILY WILL MAKE SOME AMAZING MEMORIES TOGETHER AND HAVE PICTURES TO RELIVE THEM.

Still in the fence about hiring me:

Think about YOUR life, YOUR moments, with YOU in it!
