This family totally embraced the documentary style session. They did their thing and I photographed them. It was a documentary photographer's dream :)
I photograph my documentary families the same exact way I photograph my own. My approach includes crouching, crawling, climbing and a lot of other awkward and strange positions that usually puts the people I'm photographing at ease.
Anyway, I love that these sessions are as honest as they are unique. I get to capture families living. For real. I'm capturing a story. Their story. I'm freezing a moment in time for these families and to me, that's really, really special.
I'm a big believer in photographing the everyday things. I know that one day artwork will stop covering their walls...
...and epic water balloon fights won't break out in the middle of the afternoon.
Think about your day. What was different 6 months ago? What will change 6 months from now? Our lives and routines are always changing.
It's why we should always remember to embrace the place where we live, the people we love and the things that we do <3
