REMEMBERING THE MOMENTS OF TODAY
If we want to remember bits and pieces of our life today, it’s important to not only to photograph present moments but also to preserve the images in print. Not unlike written stories, visual stories are best enjoyed glimpsed or closely studied through printed books, when touching and turning the pages adds to a sense of looking at the narrative - a story with a sense of history. These printed stories, photo albums, become our heirloom treasure that could have a very long life and be passed down from one generation to the next.
Day in the Life (documentary) photography focuses on your family - capturing authentic, unscripted moments of daily life. These moments may be extraordinary or small and familiar, yet all significant to how you experience life. Interactions between parents, siblings, pets, quite moments spent in play or contemplation, going from place to place, playing sports, dancing, visiting with family or friends – preserving the rhythm of today’s life is how the family visual history is created.
This type of photoshoot is a great alternative to a family lifestyle session. No special time is required for planning, I will follow and photograph you in your daily activities. It is optimal for family members that object to posing - everything is meant to be photographed as it spontaneously happens. The camera is never in anyone’s face and most forget about it’s presence after a few minutes. The outcome is a story of your family in a series of photographs that reflects its’ personality and singularity.
