MAKE your life FEEL like A FUN GAME,

rather than something to survive & endure.

CREATE A LIFE-BRAND

After July’s 7 Day Storyteller’s Challenge, Meghann’s #preserved story stood out to me. She chose to photograph a subject other than little ones… her husband. Ok, hold on… I’m hearing the sound of the record scratch. (post pun intended, ha) I’m adding this, because I know you’re going to ask: Yes, you may photograph your little […]

Documentary of a Husband’s Record Collection – 7 Day Challenge

I’ve watched my grandmother move homes a few times over the past 10 years or so, but she remains completely and wonderfully herself, bringing pieces of her life and self to each home she makes, while leaving others behind. My grandmother is one of the most amazing women I know, full of amazing stories, a […]

How to Create Documentary Portraits of Grandma

I see many blog posts written by photographers that start with something along the lines of “I got to spend time with…” and I always think about how they should find another way to say it.  But when I sit down to write about this family, all I can think to write about is how […]

Documentary Family Photography When the Kids are Grown Up

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

As of late, I’ve committed myself to toting my camera along with me as many places as possible. Not to incessantly be snapping away, but rather, to have it handy for documenting special moments in the lives of my 19.5 month old twin daughters, Ruby and Vera. Specifically, moments that I know we’ll want to reflect […]

Turn ‘Bring Your Kids to Work Day’ into a #preservedmemory

When you first learn to shoot in manual mode, all that’s on your mind is shutter speed, aperture, and ISO… and hurrying to figure those 3 out before missing your shot opportunity. Once you feel comfortable in those and understand how the three truly work together + begin to “see the light,” you can learn […]

360 Degrees of Natural Light Through the Doorway – Shooting Indoors

I just about leapt out of my chair when Natasha submitted this story about photographing traditions of her parents. I especially love that Natasha included little details here + there of the home itself. These things, unless you’ve first-hand said goodbye to a loved one’s home, are often overlooked and taken for granted until they’re […]
