Documentary Family Photography
It was another hot hot August in Atlanta, but my Year in the Life families got out into nature and found ways to keep cool! With a trip to the ice cream store, a run through the splash pad at the zoo, and a swim at the neighborhood pool, they had lots of fun closing out the summer season while I tagged along to document these tiny little moments that are everything.
Documentary photography means nothing posed. I do get the occasional posed portrait, and I do think that portraits are important and beautiful pictures to have. But to me the meat of the coconut is the everyday moments of joy and connection. The details of our lives as families that make us who we are, and that turn out to be fleeting.
The days are long but the years are short
The best part of documentary family photography is that nobody has to do anything they don't want to do. Your chaos is beautiful and your family is perfect just as they are in each moment. And I can show you that!
