Documentary Family Photography
I figured, if anyone would let me experiment on their newborn, Michelinne and Darren would. They are first-time parents to Ada and I am a first-time family photographer.
I’m testing out this idea where I hang out with your family for a few hours and just shoot you living together – playing, struggling, making a mess, watching TV, whatever – just normal family stuff. It doesn’t matter to me if you are laughing together or yelling at each other, playing video games, or running through the sprinkler. I don’t want to shoot a fake-perfect family day, I just want to document normal-ass families being normal-ass families. If you hired me to shoot your wedding, I think you know what I’m talking about.
Congratulations Michelinne and Darren – good luck Ada!
