1 – There is no posing for the camera (I know how that can such a pain)
That’s right, in a documentary session there are no posed photographs. You won’t hear me say things like “smile for the camera!” or “hug each other!”, and I will not place you in the perfect “happy family” pose. Instead, I will photograph your day as you live it without interfering in your moments.
2 – The photographs are real
As I spend a whole day with a family, the kids (and grown-ups) are comfortable to be themselves, wether during the playfull moments or during the calmer ones. It is during these everyday moments that their personalities truly arise and it is possible to capture their unique expressions. It is also in the day-to-day life that the most genuine gestures of affection happen.
3 – There’s no need to wait for the best light of day to make the best photographs
A “Day in the life” session begins very early in the morning, when the kids are getting up and ends at night, at bedtime. During this time, we will have amazing light as well almost no light at all. The only constant are the people and their moments. And those do not have a schedule.

5 – How much you will value the photographs in the future
