A This is (the) Life session is a chunk of time filled with all the simple and not so simple moments (aka "the stuff") that make up your life. Where your family just "is" your family. I document the story that unfolds during the time I spend with you.
It's the stuff of your daily life spending time with those you love. It's what makes you beam with pride. The times you would never take for granted, but sometimes forget. It's those super still moments in the midst of the hustle of sprinting out the door. It's that half smile she gives before nodding off. It's the tricky relationship of siblings. It's the hilarious moment that break a really sad time. Or a side eyed glance of uncertainty during a joyful celebration. It's what makes you crazy. A lost tooth that falls down the drain. Spilled milk. Sensory overload! It's love for your parents (If you're lucky enough to have them). It's everything between Birth, Birthdays, Illness, Death. It's YOU nagging to brush teeth for the third straight day. It's discovering someone used all of your toothpaste and the free dental floss from your last visit is hanging decorations from a light fixture! It's a cake made with love from mud in the garden. It's the moments that make you stop dead in your tracks because you know times like these aren't forever. That cleanliness isn't permanent and neither is their childhood. It's Life.
It's a heck of a-lot of fun even when it's sad or there's a meltdown- yours or theirs.
It's me honouring your family and your children if you have them. My camera magnifies all the love and all that makes you- you.
This is (the) Life Sessions happen at your home, or any place your family is comfortable to just "be themselves". If that happens to be a Saturday morning, mid February; I'm in! But, just so we're clear; if it's past 10pm on a school night (or any night) I've gone to bed. :)
