Have you ever considered allowing someone to be a fly on the wall in your home? I'm not talking about reality TV. What I'm proposing is a photojournalist approach to capturing your life. We are constantly filled with that subconscious desire to compete, because we see what everyone else is doing constantly via facebook, twitter and instagram. Heaven knows I can't keep up with the projects that pinterest has brought to my attention! But what if we put that all aside. What if you allowed someone to capture you AS YOU. Not dressed up in matching sweaters, posed in a way that you'd never stand in real life. Don't get me wrong, portraiture is beautiful, and I love being able to provide those images to families for wall displays and gifts for friends and extended family. But, have you ever considered allowing someone to showcase your story, in your element. These photojournalistic style images are about your lifestyle. They show dynamics & activities. They show love for one another. And without any elaborate props or the most current fashion trends, they can be beautiful in their own right. It's real life, only better composed. ;) These Illustrative (photojournalism + portraiture) images truly tell your story in a simply beautiful way. Just a little something different to consider!
After all, time is flying, your kids are growing each and every day just like mine. Each year I create an album to narrate illustratively our year in review, it's funny how often those images cause the most emotional response because they are true. They are authentic. They may not be fancy, or cutesy or trendy but they demonstrate just who my kids are to their core.
