Documentary Family Photography is an encompassing view of what it's like to be in your families shoes. It's a look inside the inner workings of what makes your clan unique and paints a birds eye view of what it means to love in your language.
It truly is a day in the life of The (insert your families name here).
Yes, your day to day life is beautiful too. My greatest challenge is finding beauty in everything no matter how generic or mundane it might seem. In general photography means working with the elements, capturing the atmosphere, soul, life, love, and energy of whatever is happening in the moment. All of those factors make-up your story and that's what I want to tell, because it deserves to be told in a way that’s real and true. These pictures are about capturing the vulnerable connection between your family members that only you see everyday.
Those moments are uniquely yours and deep down thats what you want to remember. Not a perfectly posed image on the beach. The tears, the laughter, the accidents, the energy...that's what makes up your family. That's what should be documented.

WE ARE SO AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA! CAN YOU HELP US?
Documentary Family Photos are a slice of what your daily life is actually like. A raw portrait of what it means to be a member of your family. Lifestyle is more of a staged moment on location, or at home.
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIFESTYLE & Documentary Family Photography?
My process is raw and unguarded. Nothing is ever planned out or constricted to the cookie-cutter idea of what photography should be. I follow the noise, the laughter, the tears and all the quiet moments in-between. Every session is a different journey or adventure, and thats what makes these mini-sessions so special. You will never have the same photographs as another client. Your pictures are truly unique to you.
If you're looking for a photographer who creates thoughtful images, that show real, raw emotions, then you've found the one.
