Will you remember these feelings 30 years from now? Day in the Life family sessions are for you if you want to capture your everyday moments in heartfelt storytelling imagery. There is no fussing about what to wear or how to pose. Sessions are photographed in a documentary fashion and I look to capture moments both large, small and everything in between. You'll receive photographs of activities that are such a great part of your every day and your kid's childhood that you'll be able to look back on years from now.

How to prepare

This is not your usual photo session. You'll not be expected to be perfect in any way nor do you need to prepare anything, really. Wear your jammies, that favourite T-shirt that has a bazillion holes in it but is oh-so-comfy. The most important thing is that you be you. 

What activities will we do?

This is life as you know it so whether you're baking your family's favourite cookie recipe, doing a puzzle together, hanging out in the backyard on a sunny day or a quick run to Costco, these moments are ones that you'll look back on years from now and truly cherish! The beauty of a Day in the Life session is that nothing is planned and we capture your day as it is.


Hiring me to photograph your family is more than just photography itself. I aim to slide seamlessly into your daily life in order to capture those moments and nuances of your day to day. I look to capture the tiny personalities and quirks. I'll be there to chat, to laugh and capture it all, the joy, the affection, the tantrums, the fun and maybe a bit of chaos. When I meet parents and their kids for the first time, the first thing that they often say is "My kid needs some time to warm-...." and before they can finish their sentence, their little one is already reaching out to pull my glasses off my face and we often don't need a warm-up period before starting a session. ⁣
