A DAY IN THE LIFE SESSIONS
A Day in the Life photography is a fresh approach to family photography. People who book these sessions are kinda cool. They want photographs that show their family in their natural environment just going about their everyday lives. They know that they are not going to get super stylised photographs and they aren’t afraid of photos of their lives looking real. Even if they’re a little worried that their home may look messy or their kids may play up, they know that I am there simply to capture the beauty of their everyday lives.
This is a pure documentary shoot with no direction from me at all. Children love these sessions because they get to just be themselves. “Does that mean I can fart mum?” asked one little boy when he was told about the shoot.
A Day in the Life photo shoot is kind of the opposite to a big life event photo shoot, like a wedding, birth or birthday celebration. It’s the everyday moments we have that we don’t really think about – family in-jokes, daily routines, laughter, the love we show each other. These images are the ones you’ll be able to get out and relive time and time again. And in years to come your now 2 year old will want to show their grandchildren exactly what a day in their life looked like when they were toddlers. I don’t know about you but this thought gives me goosebumps.
The shoot can take place over a morning or a full day. It’s up to you what you plan into your day. You can just hang out at home and in your garden or plan a trip or walk out, or both. All you have to do is be yourself, get on with your day doing what you normally do and let your family’s regular, mundane, crazy and quiet moments all unfold naturally. My job is to give you a set of photographs that show the beauty and awesomeness of your everyday life.
