Day in the Life Family Documentary Session

Chilliwack Family Photographer

I spent the morning with The Denham's capturing them as they are. I know so many people with kids in that late child early tween stage that continually tell me that family pictures are so boring or not needed at this stage as So much fun! I adore just hanging out with families and capturing them as they are. From pjs and breakfast to video games and a trip to the Skate park- we did it all. Are our day to day lives always pretty? Nope, but they are our lives and they are beautiful and messy and chaotic and that's okay. There is beauty in us, just as we are.

With all of the changes that occur during those middle years of being a kid to being a teen, this really is the prime time to capture your kids. These Day in the Life sessions capture those unique facial expressions and interests that highlight that fine line between being a kid and growing into a teenager.

Day In the Life Documentary sessions document who your kids are TODAY… in all its glory because my word it’s changing SO fast!  They also boost your children’s confidence- your kids will feel like a Rockstar having me follow them around doing the things THEY life to do! Kids are often think they are too cool for their picture to be taken but I promise your kids will think its a novelty and super cool and will be yelling at me to photograph them doing all sorts of things. Trust me! It is all about Self-Expression… they get to wear what they want, bring what they want and go where they want during our entire session. They want to meet up with friends, or have some friends drop in during our time- awesome! The more the merrier, lets document the days where friendships really begin and BFF is every other word in their vocabulary.

Chilliwack Family Photographer- This Is Us- Family Documentary Photographer- I photographed this amazing family in their home in early November in Chilliwack, BC. I love shooting in home documentary photography family sessions as it allows me to capture families as they are. I get to follow you around with my camera and capture the laughter, the tears, the in between moments, the goof ball moments and the utter chaos that surrounds our lives as we go about our everyday lives.s So what do we do in these type of documentary family sessions? Anything you want!

Can I just say how much I love repeat clients?! Especially the ones that love capturing their lives through a documentary perspective. Gah it gives me all the feels. I have photographed this amazing family a handful of times now, first their oldest daughter’s wedding, then back to school portraits for their youngest two daughters, and now the most amazing in home documentary session as they prepare for a new phase in their lives. This family was planning a move from their family home this Fall to purchase a home in a neighbourhood closer to their children’s school. As a result they knew they needed to have their lives documented in their home prior to moving. Stacy spoke of her love of watching the girls playing outside from her kitchen window and how Mike was usually out there with them and her desire to have all of this captured. We all have that one place in our homes that is special and dear to us. For Stacy it was her families outdoor space looking out onto the protected green belt- they even have their very own COYOTE den in the back field- EEK! Alas, those Coyotes didn’t come out to play while i was there- I guess they are camera shy!

I absolutely adore this family and their love for each other, the girls are funny, witty, smart and love with their whole hearts, and had me in stitches most of the time with their goofiness. These girls are FUN! They have great imaginations, are super sporty and love performing- they routinely put on dance shows and plays for their parents in the living room as part of their nightly routine. Both Stacy and I recall doing this exact same thing when we were kids for our parents. I guess there is something about needing an audience to show off your talents!

Day in the Life Family Documentary Session

Langley Family Photographer

I photographed Kelsey and Chris' afternoon with their three rambunctious boys in their home in Langley, BC.  I met up with them for after school pick up of their two oldest boys and I followed them home on their typical route to document through photos and film what this time in their life looks like.   We hung out at home and the boys played and showed off their amazing lego creations to me.   Kelsey spent some time sewing and I was so excited to be able to include her love for sewing as part of their session.  Kelsey is an extremely creative and talented sewer and you can see her amzing creations throughout their family film.   

This family absolutely stole my heart, especially the youngest lil' munchkin cause whose favourite thing isn't eating candy and watching TV as he explains in their family film.   Later on in the afternoon after the boys had played and done their homework we took a stroll back to the school to burn off that evening energy that boys always seem to have an abundance of as it nears bedtime.    As the boys energy winded down we settled back home for some games and pizza, a perfect ending to their Day in the Life Family Film session.
