"those early days blur together so much and things get lost in the repetition.

I love our photos because they really remind me of what our son's development was like and how much he's grown."

Kelsey R. | A Year In The Life Documentary Session

Why Choose documentary photography
for your Next family session?

There are so many little moments that happen throughout the day when we’re around our loved ones—morning cuddles, laughter, playtime, warm embraces and even temper tantrums (sure, they’re mildly annoying now, but one day they’ll be a sweet memory).

A documentary photography session captures your life the way it is right now, no matter how mundane or chaotic it may seem—fully unscripted, unstaged and fully you. Our lives aren’t always graceful or “Instagram perfect,” but that’s what makes them beautiful.

Check out my Documentary Photography FAQ for additional info about the magic of these sessions.

I offer three in-home documentary family photography packages to best fit your needs. Each is designed to best capture whatever exciting time in your family's life you'd love preserved for years to come. 

All packages include the session fee, digital photos and a photo book.
