I think an important thing that a lot of people forget when booking a photography session is that it's also about the parents. Our kids will also want to see how we were back in the day. Not just look at themselves! Documentary family photography is a powerful way to celebrate the beauty of everyday life. Embracing imperfections, capturing candid moments, and telling authentic stories offers a refreshing perspective on family photography. It reminds us that it's not about creating picture-perfect scenes, but about preserving the genuine moments that define our lives and relationships. So, the next time you're considering a family photoshoot, think beyond the poses and consider the magic that documentary photography can bring to your family's story.
