People always say to me—“you wouldn’t believe what happened at our house the other day! I wish you could have been there with your camera!” And I wish I could have been there too. Because those un-expected everyday moments are the ones I love to photograph.
I was excited to spend a fun morning with Stephanie and Clay’s family doing just that! With three boys between the ages of 6 and 13, life at the Sammis home is far from boring. Just in the few hours I was hanging out, the kids did homework, jumped on their trampoline, played foosball, fed their pet iguana, and took a bike ride to the skate park in town (among other things)! This is life everyday at their house (and mine and yours too I suspect.) A beautiful mix of chaos and calm. And these are some of the important moments- the ones we want to remember.
And so, we are introducing the “Story of You”- a lifestyle photography session documenting the ordinary moments in your life. The unscripted, real flashes of life that can slip by unnoticed. It’s your story and I will you help tell it. It can just be you hanging out with your family being you. We can do a lazy morning at home or we can go on a hike or a bike ride. I can photograph you making breakfast, reading books, sledding, nursing, or chasing the chickens. You can be picking carrots in the garden, taking a trip to the grocery store, jumping in puddles or giving the kids a bath.
