FAMILY Documentary

When you want to remember the day-to-day, real-life moments.

Today might be just another day in your wild, messy, beautiful life. It’s also your family’s history in the making. I don’t need to tell you how much your kids grow and change from week to week. Tomorrow, they won’t be as little as they are today.

The heart-wrenching truth — you can’t stay in this moment. But when you see a candid photo, even 20 or 30 years from now, it can take you right back to their tiny hand wrapped around your finger. Or the way they’d run into your arms and say, “I love you, mommy,” when you picked them up from grandma’s house.

That’s what documentary family photography is all about. Your average day might feel mundane or chaotic now, but it’s exactly what you’ll want to remember as time goes by.

These sessions are great if you:

  • Prefer a longer, laid-back session
  • Don’t mind that your daughter dressed herself in all the colors of the rainbow
  • Or conversely, is usually mostly naked
  • Prefer to capture life as it happens, in your home or out and about
  • Don’t love being posed and want more natural imagery

FAMILY LIFESTYLE

MIMICS REAL LIFE, BUT IS PLANNED, POSED, AND DIRECTED

These are the sessions that you probably imagine when someone says: “family photos”, but forget the stiff poses and unnatural smiles. I incorporate a lot of prompts into these sessions to ensure they are fun and joyful, while still creating those endearing moments of family connection. And if you want a little help preparing for these sessions (what to wear and where to go), I’ve got you covered.

These sessions are great if you:

  • Prefer a shorter session (1 or 2 hour sessions available)
  • Love coordinating outfits
  • Are aiming for a curated look to showcase to the world
  • Need a little more direction, but still want candid-looking photos
  • Want to look your best, but also want to look natural

SENIORS

YOU’VE WORKED HARD; LET’S CELEBRATE YOU!

Congratulations seniors! Your life is about to change in big and beautiful ways, and you deserve to document the story of where you are now before you embark on the next chapter of your life. Choose a single session to capture beautiful portraits, or choose multiple sessions to document your whole senior year and what makes you tick!

These sessions are great if you:

  • Are a high school or college senior
  • You love to showcase your personality & interests
  • You want some help with posing, but still want relaxed and genuine portraits

LEGACY FiLMS

Never forget the sound of your loved ones voices

What is a legacy: The long-lasting impact of a person’s life.

  • The way the baby smiles when grandpa comes over.
  • The lessons repeated again and again — the ones that you’ll pass onto your kids. “Grandma always used to tell me …”
  • The stories we leave behind — the ones we hope our kids (and grandkids, and their kids) will tell when we’re gone.

A legacy is too big to fit in a video or a photo. A story on the other hand? That’s something we can save. When you record your family’s stories (and voices, and laughs, and mannerisms), it means that not only you and your kids, but their kids can watch them back. 

Legacy film and photo sessions are multi-generational interviews recorded on video and ensure that your precious family stories — and the people in them — are never forgotten.

These sessions are great if you:

  • Want to record multi-generational stories
  • Want a multi-media product with audio, video, and photos
  • Have older relatives with the best stories to share
  • You want to interview your kids

WEDDINGS & EVENTS

THE EVERYDAY MOMENTS MATTER, BUT SO DO THE MILESTONES!

While a lot of my focus is documentary family photos & video, I do love the celebrations in life. I take on a limited number of events each year, so reach out to see if I have availability for your milestone event.

No matter the occasion, you deserve photos that will remind you how you felt on that big day. My documentary approach achieves exactly that. I’ll capture the beauty of your day: the laughter, the tears, the party, but mostly, I’ll be documenting all the love in your family. You’ll walk away with an heirloom to enjoy and share for years to come.

I can’t wait to help you celebrate and remember:

  • Your 50th birthday
  • An upcoming bar or bat mitzvah
  • A big graduation
  • Your family reunion
  • Your wedding

Event coverage is great if you:

  • Want to remember how you felt during your event.
  • Love to see the small in-between moments as well as the big ones.
  • Love natural-looking portraits, with posing support, if needed.

I believe there is nothing better than experiencing your photographs in a printed form,

and albums are my favorite
