What is a Day in the Life Video Session?

August 31, 2019


Nothing turns my heart into mush like a Day in the Life Session. These family video sessions memoralize your typical day, your routines, and everything in between so that you can return to it anytime you’d like. There’s nothing quite like capturing your family this way. It’s real. It’s golden. It is a part of you that you’ll always want to hold onto.

For this Bay Area family, it was important to remember their littles as they foraged for themselves in the early morning hours as the parents slept in. Yes, you heard me. The parents got to SLEEP IN. What a concept! And 100000% worth documenting. And I have to say I was thoroughly impressed at how independent they were, even with the rusty kitchen sheers.

And as is typical with a family photo or video session with me, there were lots of tender in-between moments captured and plenty of hysterical ones as well.

But please, don’t take it from me. Please view for yourself.

If slowing down and freezing a moment in time is something that pulls at your heartstrings, then, by all means, let’s get in touch! I would love to hear from you.

About Me

Real life is more than pretty pictures.
The beauty is in the journey, and it's absolutely
worth documenting all of it. 

I’m captivated by people and always have been; my B.S. is in anthropology. Early on, I appointed myself the family documentarian, carefully recording milestones and travels and learning along the way how much I love visual storytelling. I picked up my first professional camera when my daughter was born, knowing those early years with her were precious and full of changes. A photographer friend’s encouragement soon led me to make photography my career. Today, after many years and proud accomplishments, my passion for it only grows.

I can’t imagine doing anything else.
