‘Day In The Life’ Photography and Film

So, what is a ‘Day in the Life’ family session all about?

Capturing a day in your life is perfect for the family that would like to pause family life. Things are going so quickly, little people are changing so fast and it’s hard to capture the milestones AND be in the moment on your own.

My experience and documentary approach to family photography is perfect if you’d like to remember what life feels like right now for you all. 

Be it capturing family life in your first home before you move or maybe capturing how your children are together before big changes like school happen. This honest and natural style of photography and videography is perfect for sharing your story.

As an award-winning documentary family photographer I feel they’re the BEST way to capture family life as it is right now. Allowing you all the time to slow down and be together without the pressure of documenting family life yourself.

Plus, you get to be in the photos too for a change…

The Real Life Family Session – Documentary Family Photography and Film

You like the idea of having family life documented without any fuss. No posing, no studios, no stress. Simply capturing real family life in a relaxed and unobtrusive way.

Documentary style family photography is simply documenting an accurate representation of family life.

The genuine, honest moments.

Not just the smiles, the first steps and the happy memories we share but also the more honest story of parenthood.

These ‘every day’, seemingly ordinary moments are what pass by so fast that we go on to wish we’d not taken for granted.


Day in The Life Photography – Lancashire

A Day In The Life Film For Arti, Manchester

Zoe, Tom, Arti and Ripley (their cute sausage dog) had put their house up for sale and felt it was important to capture family life before the big move.

This was Arti’s first home and was filled with so many memories already, they were keen to capture what family life felt like at home.

As well as the little details around the home I got to capture honest and natural moments of them enjoying the every day things they loved doing together (including cheeky coffee and cake dates during nap times!)


Arti’s Day In The Life Photography, Manchester

Arti really does have the most infectious smile. But I think you’ll agree, they clearly get it from their parents who were always grinning back!

Here are some of the ‘Best Bits’ from their Day In The Life in Walkden, Manchester. It included capturing those every day things they’d spent all of Arti’s life doing…from Daddy’s breakfasts to the walk to the park.

It was an honour to be there to capture their family story so far…


The Cheetham’s Family Film, Lancashire

This Day In The Life family session was all about capturing Ava-Violet and her new brother being crazy together.

I always ask you what a typical family day looks like and although they said it started off slow they loved getting out and about around Lancashire and Southport.

So, it was up to me to capture their balance of chilled home time and fun at the seaside in this family film…

Here are The Cheetham’s ‘Best Bits’ in photos from their Day In The Life Session.

From breakfast in their PJ’s to chips by the beach, there was so much to capture for them on this sunny Lancashire day!

Spending the full day together really allows the time to capture what family life really feels like so when you look back you can see how special your ‘every day’ was…


What To Expect – Day In The Life Family Photographer and Videographer

A documentary photography and video ‘Day In The Life’ is ideal for a slower paced family shoot that allows you to lead.  The perfect photography session for capturing honest family life and a bit more of the ‘every day’.

Hanging out for the full day (around 10 hours), from breakfast to tucking in to bed time and everything in-between. Simply documenting your every day in a very special and unique way.

The best way to capture totally natural moments and unprompted connections between you.

For you little ones to embrace me being there and let me in on all the fun.

To allow you to enjoy this time together as a family and finally feel a little present (which I know is ridiculously hard at times).

To really pause life as it is now, to come back and relive it as many times as you like…

An Alternative Family Shoot – Your Own Family Film

One thing that makes a Love Gets Sweeter Real Life (Day in The Life) photography session really special is the addition of filming. As standard.

During the day I’ll discreetly switch between filming and photographing your family life so you have a wonderful collection of images and video clips to relive this time together. Seeing and hearing all those moments back really bring it all back to life and give you something really special to keep and soon become your very own family heirloom!

I can totally relate to any worries or niggles you may have about having a your very own professional family photography session at home or somewhere special to you.

We all know how hard is it to get just one NICE photo of your own kids. And lets not get started on getting a decent photo of us with our kids…

Having me simply come and hang out with you is the only way of capturing those personalities without the need to pose.

It’s all about capturing your real life as it is right now…
