People hire me, for the most part, as they are embarking on some momentous occasion in their lives – a wedding, a new baby, a right of passage. But when the wedding is long past, and the babies are no longer babies, usually what is left is a family. I offer Family Documentary Sessions, to capture exactly who your family is at this exact moment, without apology. Siblings have complex relationships, with their parents, with each other, with the order of things. Daughters have ugly dolls that mothers can’t stand, and sons can and will climb anything they can manage. Two people who love each other became a family of four, and these Family Documentary sessions are not about proving that they were all here together. There isn’t much looking at the camera and smiling here. It’s a day for everyone to be themselves, to create images mostly for their children to look back on and remember their relationships, their love, their giggles, their quarrels. Their family. I am grateful that this family trusted me with that task.
