WHAT IS FAMILY DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY?


"Family Documentary Photography" or "Family Photojournalism" is unscripted, un-posed, non-directed photography of everyday family life (and by “family”, I mean everything from the traditional mom/dad/kids to best friends to partners to boyfriends to roommates - whatever “family” means to you). I record what happens naturally.

I come to your home, or meet you at the park or the beach or at brunch or wherever you choose, and just take photos as you and your family or friends interact just as you would on a day when a photographer was not present.

I want these photos to capture the true essence of your family, your relationships, the stage of life you are currently experiencing. I want it to be real, in all its tantrum-ing, messy, teary, silly, beautiful glory. I want to capture this chapter in your story, so that you can look back and remember exactly how it looked and felt at this very moment.
