Documentary Family Photography

What really happens during A Day In The Life | Sleeping III

As the documentary approach to family photography is growing within the photographer community, we’ve noticed that it might be hard to understand how it differs from regular “photo sessions”. So we thought we’d show you through a What really happens series.

When thinking about family documentary photo sessions, the length of the session might seem scary. Four hours? Six hours? A FULL DAY? But the kids need to sleep!

Well guess what? Because the photographer will document whatever your family is up to that day, the pictures will capture the sweet naps, bedtime routines and sleeps.
