The Session Experience
Documentary means there is no posing! Your kids will just be themselves and do what they do.
My goal is to capture real moments that happen naturally. Your children will just go about their normal routine at home or a favorite place. Consider me a family friend coming to visit. I will snap photos as moments arise, not force them. I'm focused on getting beautiful, completely candid images of your children that show their unique personality and what it was like at this time in your lives.
Check out the FAQ's below for more information and common questions ...
DOES THIS HAVE TO BE AT HOME?
I love documenting kid's everyday routines at home and I think you'll love to have images that allow you to look back on this time. If we decide on a location outside of the home, let's go to a favorite place.
WHAT DO WE WEAR?
Please resist the urge to dress any differently as you normally would on any given day. Better yet, let the kids pick out their own outfits and we can admire their creativity.
do you shoot in color?
I will work in color occasionally, but usually my images are black and white, grainy and nostalgic.
do SHOOT FILM OR DIGITAL?
I generally shoot a few rolls of film and fill in the gaps with digital coverage. I love the timeless fine art quality of film.
IS THIS TO INCLUDE ALL MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY?
This doesn't have to be about the whole family, but it can if you want it to! I can keep my focus to the kids only or I can document the whole family spending time together. This could also be a mommy & me session, or a playdate session shared with a friend.
will you take posed photos of us, looking at the camera?
I'm always happy to take a few camera-aware portraits, but if you are looking for a lot of these, I’m not the right photographer for you. I’m more interested in spontaneous unprompted smiles.
do you travel?
YES. If you are not in the Los Angeles area but do wish to set up a session, please let me know.
