austin documentary family photographer

Nobody does mornings exactly like you do. Or evenings, either. Or any moment in between. And even though the days seem slow, the character of your days is evolving faster than you can blink.

When you fall onto the couch at the end of a fun family day, which are the moments that make you smile, make you cringe, take your breath away? What will you miss as time flies by and it's hard to remember what life was like back then?

There is no better way to capture the chaos, the beauty, the absurdity, the tenderness, and the precise character of your family's right now than a Day in the Life photo session. These sessions are undirected and documentary in style, and create an intimate, beautiful record of the fabric of your life at this moment in time.

Day in the Life sessions last 10-12 hours (Half-Day sessions last 4-6) and take place in and around your family's home and favorite local haunts. Together we will create a visual history of your life's current rhythm, quirks and moments. One that will allow you to evoke this period years down the road, when the first-hand memory has faded.

Custom packages are created upon consultation, but may include an heirloom, archival-quality photo album, custom wall art, classic prints, or digital files.

Day-in-the-Life session + heirloom photo book packages start at $1875.

EVERY FAMILY HAS A STORY: Financial Aid Sessions

While every family has a story to tell, not every family has the means to hire a photographer for a full day to document their story. The Every Family Has a Story program was born of the desire to level the playing field for families who are overtaxed, underrepresented, or have a particularly important or compelling story.

Every Family sessions are merit-based, limited in availability, and operate on a Pay-What-You-Can basis.
