Day in the Life photo sessions are some of my absolute favorite things to photograph, so I was delighted when Dana and Mike asked me to photograph a typical afternoon with their four-month-old baby, Oliver.

      I documented as they carried on their normal routine: they cuddled in their favorite spots, played with Oliver, fed him, took him outside on a pretty day, and then nursed him to sleep. These sweet, everyday moments are what families memories are made of, and I’m so happy to have been able to capture bits of their real life.

      Thank you, Dana and Mike, for inviting me to document this priceless time in your family’s history. You guys are adorable.

      Would you like me to photograph a day in your life? My Day in the Life photo sessions last 3-12 hours, and include mostly photojournalistic images with the occasional posed image when appropriate. But mostly I just quietly document your beautiful life.

      You can see more of my family photojournalism HERE. Contact me if you’d like to chat about your family’s photos. I’d love to hear from you.
