In A Glimpse is excited to officially start offering Day In The Life sessions. So what exactly is a Day In The Life session you may ask. Well, basically it’s me capturing your life as it happens every day. There is no schedule, no planned location, no matching outfits just beautiful photos of your family the way you see them.
Time has a funny way of creeping up on us. That’s part of the reason why we take photos, to remember those moments, those events, that we know we won’t remember forever. Why is it that we only take photos of the BIG stuff? Weddings, babies, birthday parties…major life events. Why do we rarely, if ever photograph the every day moments? At the end of our life time all those every day moments are just as life changing and beautiful as the really big ones but they are so rarely photographed.
As a photographer I love capturing families and children, especially as they grow. I’ve been fortunate enough to have some clients start with me capturing their wedding, all the way up to two babies and years later which is a pretty amazing thing! But I can say that behind every posed family photo session I’ve captured, most, if not all did not go as smoothly and as enjoyably as one might think from the photos. There is usually a lot of bribery and of course meltdowns and lets not forget that’s not including the stress that mom and dad feel to pick out matching outfits, pray the weather is nice and hope their kids cooperate. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am sucker for a really great family portrait and I do believe it’s something you should do on a regular basis BUT I also think there is something incredible about capturing every days as it happens, un-posed, unscripted, just life as it is. Life with kids is messy and usually loud and pretty chaotic but that life is yours. The way your little one’s feet sit in high chair, the way your child lines up their toys, the way your kids interact with each other, the face they make right after you yell at them, the joy on their faces as they play in the backyard…..those moments are beautiful and as any parent would tell you they are fleeting. So why not capture them? And more importantly, you should be in those moments as well. Parents these days take tons of photos, I don’t doubt of their real life, but as a parent are you ever in any of those photos? Do they ever come out of your phone? Are they put away for safe keeping and memories for later?
The images below are of a family very near and dear to my heart. A while back ( like a long while back) I got to capture their life for the day. I’ve been waiting to share them until I was ready to open up these sessions to everyone and now I can’t wait any longer. Day In The Life sessions are officially available. I can spend 2 hours with your family or a whole day! And at the end of it you will have just a small glimpse of your life preserved in photographs.
