Why schedule a "Day In The Life" session?

Because they grow up too fast, and one day he won't need a stool to peer over the counter. One day she won't want to wear her princess costume to school. Because life is short, and moments are fleeting. That's why.


What is captured?

Everything. Your home, exactly as it is. Your kids, and the world from their perspective. Your dog, drool and all. This is a moment-by-moment experience. Yes, that means I will continue documenting even if your toddler throws a tantrum, spills glitter all over the floor, or puts macaroni in her hair. This session is intended to document honest, authentic moments that make up your everyday life. Raw, untouched emotions (tiny smiles, belly laughs, tears and wrinkled noses) are part of the beauty this type of session aims to capture. That said, I will stop documenting is if a child or animal in the household is being upset specifically by my presence.


Where does the session take place?

We begin in your home, however I am happy to follow you to the park, the grocery store, strawberry picking, or your mom's house, if that is where the day takes you. I encourage you not to plan a specific activity, but rather to treat this as any other day.
