Our Day in the Life Family Portraits are different from regular family portraits. For a Day in the Life session, we have more time, and that means we get to document your family's real moments – unposed, never staged, not even directed. You and your children can be yourselves in all your goofy, cuddly, beautiful glory. There is nothing like seeing the real, natural smiles on your children's faces – the same expressions you experience every day when the cameras aren't around. That is what we will capture for you. You probably haven't ever seen the expression on your child's face when they are wrapped up in a warm hug with you. We can't wait to show you what that looks like.
For a Day in the Life session, we will meet you at your home or in your happy place – whether that's the beach, your neighborhood park, maybe even Grandma's house. We will photograph your family interactions without interference. Maybe you're all cooking breakfast together from scratch. Maybe you're taking the same neighborhood walk you take every afternoon that leads to your favorite park where the kids could play for hours. You could plan nothing at all, or you could think about typical things you do as a family that you know you might not do forever as the kids get older.
Day in the Life sessions are perfect for Charleston family vacation photography! We'll meet you at your vacation rental house and spend hours with you and your family, capturing all the meaningful moments that make this family gathering so important.
Imagine having those moments you treasure so much NOW captured forever so you can experience them again and again throughout the years, merely by opening an album or seeing them on your walls every day. That's what we would love to give you.
Every Day in the Life session ends with posed family group shots (if desired). So you can check your holiday card photos off the list, as well as gifts for the grandparents.
We will help you choose the best hours of the day for your Day in the Life family portraits. Shortly after your session, your photos will be ready to show you. Together, we will either design wall art for your home or an album that shows the entire day. Or we will help you select photos for fine-art prints, or perhaps the digital files. No matter how you decide to display your family photographs, we know they will bring you endless joy, especially as your children move on to other stages of life. No matter what happens, you will always have these moments right here. And that means everything.
We offer Day in the Life Family Portraits in Charleston and the San Francisco Bay Area throughout the year. For other locations, please ask us, as we often travel to other places for our photography work and can always add a day to photograph your family!
