My heart.  This is where my photographer’s heart feels at home, happy.  Samantha is a good friend of mine, and I have gotten to know her and her family over the past couple of years as we have bonded over babies and photography.  I asked her if she would mind if I did a documentary session with her, a “day in the life” of sorts.  She was excited about it, so we did it!

We started off the session with a couple “posed” photos by the window.  I guess I would even say more directed than posed.  And then after that, we just hung out and took photos the rest of the night.  They got dinner ready, ate together, took a bath, and got ready for bed.  Families do this everyday, and have been doing this every day, in a variety of fashions, for thousands of years.  It is a simple routine, a common routine, and yet infused with beauty.

I asked Sam to write just a little bit for me about her experience with this session and here is what she had to say,

“So you may think…’why should I photograph my daily routine instead of getting all dressed up and perfect for a family photo?’…well, once you see your life on film through Steph’s eyes, you’ll understand why it means so much to have captured that moment in time. I am just in love with my day in the life session with Stephanie. I adore all the little moments that she captured that happen daily that I will miss so much in the future…but at least now I have the photographs to hold on to!”
