MAKE your life FEEL like A FUN GAME,

rather than something to survive & endure.

CREATE A LIFE-BRAND

Throughout various communities, I’ve seen photographers wish they could pose men better. Documenting adult men is a whole different ball game and, frankly, is pretty easy to do! I had a wild hair to challenge our FB group to photograph their husbands (or bestie). We’ve been saying for months that we don’t want our blog […]

17 Photos to Inspire You in Documenting Adult Men

It’s weird how strong of an effect a brand has on people. Whether it’s Nike for athletes or Disney for families, brands have cultivated a staple in our culture. I’d argue that these brands hit a fever pitch during my childhood. Nike’s ads were plastered with Michael Jordan, Disney targeted families during a renaissance of […]

The End of an Iconic Toy Store Generation: Farewell Toys “R” Us

We’re surrounded by photographers shooting their Day in the Life projects and offering these sessions to clients. If you’re anything like me, you’ve become too busy to do your own and too “I really don’t want to invest in a photographer when I can take our family photos myself with a little strategy to get […]

Thoughts on Photographing Your Own DITL with Alaina Miles

Our “school” mornings consist of our family being together — groggy and sometimes a little crabby, but together. I revealed these Morning in the Life photos for our 7 Day Storyteller’s Challenge participants, so they could have an example. The funny thing is, I made these pictures on a whim, before the challenge on the fly, without thought. […]

A Morning in the Life Before School

Mother’s Day 2015, my family and I took a few rafts down the Itchetucknee River located in North Central Florida. I was 18 weeks pregnant and hadn’t been down the river in almost five years since before I had my first child. I wanted to bring the camera, but was worried about it getting wet, […]

Documentary Travels: Itchetucknee River

PLAY is missing from most of our American lives these days. We’re so busy, and play is the first thing to go when we feel rushed. Play and fun are critical components to childhood and shouldn’t be brushed aside so easily. It’s in play, together, that we bond and forge memories. It’s in play, particularly […]

Playful Dads: A Documentary Photo Project

You know those trips it seems you will never top and will never be forgotten? That’s how the trip to the cabin was last summer… The weather was AMAZING. The food was good as always. The mosquitoes were there, but bearable. The fish were biting like crazy. The hot springs were just hot enough. Fun […]

Documenting Your Family Vacation in Photos

Hannah’s photo session was part of my “Before 8am” series, a photography project I started with the goal of documenting what happens — wait for it — before 8am. I wanted to choose something that happened in everyone’s day, a time or event that every family experiences in some way. Everyone has a morning routine, […]

“Before 8am” A Documentary Photography Project

I want to start by acknowledging the dirty little secret of family documentary photography: for many, it takes some selling. I’m a part of several Facebook groups of photographers, most of which are filled with incredibly talented, open-hearted, and yet frustrated women who are struggling with how to get more families to embrace this style. […]
