Real Life
Photography + Family Films

Because real life is the best.

The giggles and snuggles of your everyday are actually freaking amazing, and before you know it this moment will be gone. Life keeps moving and little ones grow up, but I can help you remember this crazy beautiful life you've created with authentic photography and videography.

Whether it's a maternity, newborn, or family session in your home or out in your world, I will create photos and videos that are as unique as your family. There is nothing better than real life, so let's just relax, have fun, and capture some of the love. 

"The days are long but the years are short" -Gretchen Rubin

I see you

The multitasker, the dream-chaser, the one who wears a hundred hats in a single day. Your ​l​ife is a symphony of laughter, chaos, and heartfelt moments, and I'm here to freeze those fragments of time​. Life often feels like a whirlwind, ​but you still manage to carve out moments to show your loved ones just how much they mean to you.


You're the one always taking the photo but never in the photo. 


I want to document the warmth, the love, and the authenticity that make your life unique. Your story deserves to be told for you and the generations to come.


Let's create something beautiful together.


I'm Chanda, a family photographer

and film maker near Decatur.


I make pictures and home movies for busy parents who know that time is moving along too quickly. With a stress-free and honest approach to documenting real life, I know that family photography can capture personalities and connections in a way that allows you to preserve the family memories you are making while also telling your family's unique story.


I want to make art out of your life.
