Documentary Family Photography

Capturing real & authentic moments

Unscripted childhood. A true recording of you and your family

I call it:

This is about recording your every day "small" & ordinary moments. How you eat, play, sleep, bathe. Everything in between.  Documentary family photography is less polished. More messy & chaotic. The truth of real life at home & out and about.

Coloring outside the lines!

Documentary sessions can be longer than a usual family photo shoot. You can have a regular session with this feel though.

I will make use of the best light in your home. Sometimes natural light can be in unexpected places.

This is perfect for newborn, babies & young children who are naturally curious & busy. You will know your child best of all and we can work out how to capture a true account of your day to day.

Capturing the details. What are your child's favorite toys, where does he sleep & play? Does he like to bake, is there a favorite pet? Let your home be the other character in this photo story
