how to document and keep records for unschooling

What would you do? Levi tends to strip down and drop his clothes wherever—inside out 90% of the time. The inside-out part drives me INSANE. Idk. I feel like I’m doing everyone a favor by keeping up with the laundry… the least they can do is drop off the clothes “inside right” (🤔😆) as I […]

War of the Laundry

Once upon an 8:31 p.m. ago, the ugly mommy monster appeared like clockwork.  “Get ready for bed!” she’d growl.  “Did you get your 20 minutes of reading done? I don’t care if you don’t want to, you HAVE TO for school!”  She was on edge.  She watched the minutes get later and later, putting her own […]

In this short time, I quickly learned that my kids were totally doing their school work, because they *had* to. They weren’t energized and engaged in the content. It was work. […]

Why Unschooling Our Kids Works Best for Us

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. They say you can learn a lot about someone by what they photograph. They also say that everyone has their own unique perspective. I couldn’t agree more. I’m a documentary photographer. I’m also a mom of three kids. I love both jobs immensely. I spend the majority of […]

Teaching Children about Self Expression through Documentary Photography

When clients contact me to inquire about a session, they often ask for either a specific location that reflects Germany, Europe or a location they’ve seen in my other images. Of course, to break the ice, I always joke and say, “of course, we can go there and of course I do everything… except underwater photography… LOL.” Early this past summer, […]

Documenting Real Stories: A High School Senior with a Love for Aviation

Documentary family photo work with parents and little ones come in abundance to be published on Fearless and Framed®. I’m not sure why the demand for family photos seems to wane as the kids get older. Just as important as celebrating the firsts we have with our babies and children, the years in the middle + when […]
