Day in the Life photography gives you something you can’t get in a 1 hour photoshoot. In fact, it gives you 4-12 more hours of things you can’t get in a 1 hour shoot.
I spend 5 hours with you over the course of a morning and document all the love in your life and the perfection in the chaos. No posing. No wrangling for the perfect smile. This type of session not only shows you what life was like on this day in this year; it is also like a time capsule full of your daily treasured moments for you to look back on. It is a gift to your current and future self, and to the future generations of your family.
You can learn more about why I fell in love with these sessions here.
Don’t just take my word for it. Here’s what one client had to say about her session:
“The thought of having someone follow you around documenting your day seems a little crazy. I thought our boys would either a) put on the “perfect boy” show or b) put on the “imperfect boy” version. We were shocked when neither happened. Having Sylvie in our home was so easy that she captured our everyday version. The good and the bad. The boys didn’t seem to notice she was there as she floated from space to space documenting our life. I couldn’t wait to see the images she would capture because she caught as normal of a day as we have.
“Parenting three boys is hard and exhausting. Fun but exhausting. When the photos came, I thought we would see our family arguing. I figured more stern looks and frustration and less joy. Because honestly, it feels like that in the moment. When the photos and slideshow came, I was amazed. There were so many photos of us happy, smiling, and playing. Wiping tears and making lunch and yes, doing some discipline. Was every photo a perfect family shot with joy oozing from it? No, of course not. That’s not real. But they were perfect because they captured the ups and downs in this life. It made me realize that maybe we aren’t that bad of parents after all. Maybe we’re actually pretty good at this job. And that… that was worth it all.”
