What Is Documentary Photography and Why Do I Need it?


I'm a huge nerd for nostalgia. Preserving memories is incredibly important to me. Documenting our authentic selves, remembering the emotions behind the scenes, the quiet moments, the laughter . . . that's what it's all about. When you look at your images years from now, I want you to be instantly transported back in time. I want you to remember exactly how you felt in that moment. I want you to be so moved by the emotions these images make you feel that you simply cannot imagine not documenting these moments. Life moves quickly and it's over in the blink of an eye. Photography allows us to hold onto the moments tha tmatter and it gives our children and grandchildren invaluable representations of what life was like "way back when". They will thank you for this; I promise.




These Day-in-the-Life documentary sessions are unscripted. Raw. Authentic. I will be with you from wake-up to bedtime, documenting all the moments in between. This is an honest representation of your life in this moment. I will not direct you or pose you. You do not need to be in full hair and makeup. The purpose of this session is to preserve these moments, just as they are. Unadulterated. Honest. These images will be artistic and intimate and a visual representation of your family.

Processing of your images will be complete approximately two weeks after our session; from there, we will have your Ordering Session where your images will be unveiled to you for the first time. We will design your book together at this time. Please be sure to have those who are participating in financial decisions present as this is when you will order your family art.



You deserve to have these hidden moments documented and preserved for the rest of your life. What may go unnoticed to some is what I seek out. It's these touching moments that pull at my heart strings. They mean the most to me and I promise you they will mean the world to you, too.

Wedding days rush by in a blur. When you view your images, I want you to remember exactly how you felt in that moment. I want to show you the hidden stories you didn't see. Sometimes the best moments are the spontaneus ones. Authenticity is beautiful.



I want to get to know you. Connecting with you on a personal level is essential to our relationship and will help produce the best images possible from our time together. Let's meet for coffee and get to know each other. We will talk about what is important to you and what this DITL session means to you and your family. Before we sit down together, I will send you a questionnaire to help you prepare for our meeting as well as your photography session. I want you to think about these questions and answer from the heart, because in the end, that's what it is all about. This is from the heart - for the heart.
