YEAR IN THE LIFE Family Photography | September 2022 | Atlanta

Documentary Family Photography

September arrived, temperatures dropped, and everyone seemed so ready for fall! My September Year in the Life photo sessions started with a very special 5th birthday celebration, and included a morning in downtown Decatur (with breakfast at Waffle House). The end of the month was all about getting ready for Halloween, with a trip to a pumpkin patch, and decorating the house.

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. Whether you plan a special day or I document an hour out of an ordinary day, I try to make beautiful images that show the love, personality and connection you all have.
