What really happens during A Day In The Life | Sleeping

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? The kids will be cranky if they don’t get a nap in.

Well guess what? Naps and bed time do happen during these sessions. Because the photographer will document whatever goes on naturally for your family there is no need to keep the kids – or parents! – awake.
