The Everyday Life Session

Did you know the single-most photographed

subject in the world is family?


Your family, my family, any family.


If a smart phone is on hand or a cheap camera is kicking around
we’ll always be taking pictures of our kids, parents and pets living their lives.

 

I’m talking about the fun stuff, the candid moments of the people
and animals we love with all their quirks and personality.
Each new image adds to the mother lode of memories we cherish.
Sometimes we’ll take family photography to a higher level.

We’ll hire a professional photographer for a portrait session.


And then something weird happens.


Parents scrub their children clean, slick back their hair, dress them
in matching outfits and stage their home like it's about to go on the market– 

it’s a miracle if the people in the final images resemble anything like a real family.


Well, I approach my photography differently.

I step into your world and get to know you.
 

Your life becomes my studio.

 

In my other life I was a nanny. I worked for years in a dog day care.

Kids and pets love me. And I love them.


Families come alive before my lens.

Everyone is natural and real.

I let kids be kids. Your love shines through.

There’s nothing fake or fabricated about my sessions.
Together we have fun and keep things real.

That’s what makes my work different.
It’s why my clients are so delighted with the results.


I’d be honoured to capture what makes your family special.

Here's how it works:

1. You book The Everyday Life Session

2. I come to your desired location

3. Your family lives their daily life

4. I document it all

5. You receive the digital images and memories to have forever and ever

What is the Everyday Life Session all about?
 

Your day is made up of many little moments that when they come together, they create a sequence and they tell a story.

 

This session is designed to do just that.

 

Tell your family story with everyone in it.

I am there to capture the ordinary everyday moments. The longer you are with me, the more natural moments will happen because the more time that goes by, the more likely all of you are to forget about the camera and just be yourselves.

 

Ideas for an Everyday Life Session

 

Here are a few suggestions of things you might do on an average day that would be fun to document:

 

  • hockey (or any sport) practise and the routine

  • pancake breakfast on the weekend
     

  • something seasonal like pumpkin picking & carving or apple picking 
     

  • baking together/arts and crafts/dress-up
     

  • the after school routine
     

  • washing the car
     

  • family reunion
     

  • snowman building, sledding and cozying up inside
     

  • decorating the Christmas tree
     

  • Sunday family dinner
     

  • family walks with the dog to the playground
     

  • your average summer afternoon
     

  • extra curricular activities and all that comes with that

     

The ideas are endless!

What ordinary moments do you want to remember?
 

'I get so busy sometimes chasing the extraordinary moments

that I don't pay attention to the ordinary moments.

The moments that, if taken away, I would miss more than anything.'
