What is Family Photojournalism?
I do a style of family photography called Family Photojournalism, which is a contemporary spin on the traditional family portrait.
Family photojournalism is about artistically capturing the wonderful candid interactions that occur during the course of everyday family life.
You don’t have to find time to schedule a Family Photojournalism session because I come to you whenever and wherever your family is already going to be together.
Capture the relationships you have with your children before they grow up!
Your little people won’t be little forever. They grow like crazy those first few years and, before you know it, you have pre-teens.
So set aside a few minutes for a complimentary consultation to talk about those family photos you’ve been meaning to have done, but haven't had time to do.
I can help you create the most incredible photos of your family you've ever seen without you having to change your family's schedule at all. I come to you whenever and wherever your family is already going to be together.
Family photos made easy
There's no need to dress everyone the same and make a grand, complicated, studio production out of taking family photos.
Family photojournalism is about capturing natural, relaxed, candid images in your home or wherever is convenient for you.
The traditional family portrait
Of course, we’ll also produce a few traditional family portraits. These family legacy pieces are an important fabric in your family’s mosaic.
Facebook may not be around in twenty years, so Facebook is no place to store your family photos. Family wall art, however, is something you own and something you treasure and something that your family will pass down for generations to come.
Little details that become important over time
What would it mean to your family if you had wall art of your great granddad teaching your granddad how to build a go-kart or a treehouse back in the day?
Or perhaps large prints of your grandmother knitting the sweaters or quilts that you now count amongst your most prized possessions?
I help you create wall art like that for your family to enjoy for generations.
What does having family portraits on the wall accomplish?
Why do you put your children’s drawings on the refrigerator when you can’t even tell which side is up?
You do it because it builds their esteem and shows them that they are important.
You also do it because having that kind of imagery around brightens your day and reminds you of your big why…your reason for all the hard work you do.
Photos trapped inside your phone just don’t have the same impact.
Don't buy art, BE art!
Adorn your walls with engaging, dynamic, true-to-life photos of your family that capture your relationships and tell the story of your love for one another. Relive those memories when your guests ask “What's the story behind this great photo on your wall?”
Family wall art is family history
A walk through your home should be a walk through a gallery of your family’s special memories.
Through printed family photos, you can bring your walls to life with your family tree. Over time, these snapshots in time provide a priceless window into how things were “back in the day.”
It's all about the print
Your family memories are stories best told in wall art, which is why prints are the final product of my family photojournalism sessions, not digital files.
The digital file is delivered along with each printed image purchase.
