Why Should You Book a Day in the Life Session?
In January 2015, I began my own personal, monthly Day in the Life series. Once a month, I spent the entire day photographing our life. The photos were not perfect, but each moment was. Each moment showed me what a beautiful, messy existence our family leads. My home in Phoenix isn’t perfectly decorated. There is often dust on the furniture and dog hair on the floor. I do not have wide sweeping windows that let gorgeous light inside and reflect off of stunning wood floors.
However, my home is where my husband and I have created a family. It is where we build memories of our children learning to crawl and walk. It’s where we bake birthday cakes and laugh at the dinner table. It is where our children will remember running around in the backyard sprinklers, coming home from school, and cuddling on the couch.
It’s because of these reasons that I love to photograph families in their homes. When you look back at your photo albums, and your children become adults and reminisce about where they grew up, it’s these photos that will stand out. It’s your child dressed up in her princess outfits. It’s reading to your children on the couch. It’s the tea parties and laser sword fights and lego towers. It’s not perfect or scripted, but it’s yours. And it’s beautiful.
