Family photojournalism is something I’ve fallen in love with recently. I’ve never been a fan of mini-sessions. It takes time to capture a child’s personality. It takes time to capture those fleeting interactions between a mother and her son. It takes time to build trust with another person as their photographer. Recently I’ve begun offering “day in the life” sessions as a way to capture those delicate interactions and preserve memories for families. It’s pure photojournalism. I spend 6-12 hours with a family observing their interactions and emotions through my camera. I’m especially proud of this set of the Nichols family. This is our fourth year taking their family photos and this session was definitely my favorite. During this day I also shot my version of a “home video” which I’m excited to share very soon!
