A DAY IN THE LIFE PHOTO SESSION
A Day in the Life session is a fresh approach to family photography and is very different to a traditional portrait shoot or lifestyle shoot.
People who book these sessions are, I think, kinda cool because they want photographs that show their family in all their natural glory. No posing, no matching clothes, no forced smiles or loving poses that they only do on photo shoots….nope, none of this.
They want something a little different.
They want photographs that show their family life exactly as it is right here, right now. With photographs that could only ever belong to them. With photographs that make them say “Oh these are so us!!”
And the great thing about these sessions is that you don’t need to cross your fingers and hope your children will perform on the day. Or keep their clothes clean. Or behave like angels and not show you up…
There is no direction from me at all. And no posing. Children LOVE these photo sessions as they get to just be themselves.
It is, in fact, probably the easiest photo session you’ll ever do. All you have to do is be yourself, get on with your day doing what you normally do and let your family’s normal, mundane, crazy moments unfold naturally.
How it all works…
We meet up if you live near enough or speak by phone, FaceTime or Skype if you don’t (I prefer to meet up with people first then your children will know who I am when I’m photographing them waking up or at breakfast…). We’ll then arrange a date for your shoot and I’ll turn up at whatever time you’d like to start.
I hang out with you for 4 – 5 hours in the morning (or you can have the whole day from breakfast time to bedtime) and creatively photograph your day as it unfolds.
It may be a ‘lets just hang out at home’ kind of day or it may be an active one with a trip to the park, beach or wherever. Most people tend to spend half the time just hanging out and half doing a walk or other activity.
You will receive your photographs 2-3 weeks later…some of these will look great framed on a wall and all of them will look great as a story in a photo book.
What you get…
- Pre-session information with some tips on how to get the most out of your photo shoot
- A 4 – 5 hour photo session
- 150-250 professionally edited images on a USB stick
- Images in high resolution for printing
- and in low resolution for sharing online
What I need on the day…
- a family or couple happy in their own skins and with each others company, who love photos!
- a nice mug of tea
- more tea
- did i mention tea?
Wondering if it’s the right kind of photo shoot for you?
