MAKE your life FEEL like A FUN GAME,

rather than something to survive & endure.

CREATE A LIFE-BRAND

NoFo Winery Part Deux was the name of the invitation for the Facebook event sent by a client of mine whom I’ve become really good friends with for a few years now. My initial thought was, “it’s like an invite to a birthday party, but for moms with wine & cheese. Plus, NO KIDS for […]

Documenting Real Stories: Bring Your Camera to Girls’ Day

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

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

Like white water rafting or flying through a good book in one sitting is for some people, Fearless and Framed® is my thrill. Truthfully, I’m the opposite of someone that experiences business burnout…. I can’t get enough. I’ve been running businesses since 2008 and though there’s been some zigging + zagging, I truly enjoy the journey. […]

Escaping Business With Our First Family Vacation

This session is special to me, because it’s of my brother and his family. I wanted to show the love shared between him, his wife, and their two boys. I was striving to capture each person’s individual personality and how they each add something special and unique to the family dynamic. I wanted to do […]

A Glimpse of a Day in the Life with Boys

It sometimes feels like clients only seek photography services (documentary especially) for the MILESTONES (weddings, birthdays, events, etc.), as if only the big moments are worthy of hiring a photographer for / spending money on. In my experience (after starting out on this lone, documentary road in my local area), when money is attached to photography, […]

Magnify Small Moments into a Photography Experience

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

Documentary photography was always within, I just didn’t realize it. When I first got into photography, about a year ago, I was always a tad bit envious of all the other photographers I saw online taking gorgeous photos of their children… You see, I don’t have children yet. I always thought it would be so […]
