A Day in the Life session is where Daniel & myself capture the magic of every day life. We’ll be spending an entire day with you capturing all of the beautiful little moments that make up your daily routine. This is the direction we’ll be moving with all of our family photography away from the perfectly posed and into the naturally beautiful! Don’t get me wrong, posed portraits are great and we do them well, but I think there’s something extra special about capturing a day in time. Kids grow so quickly and the little moments pass us by every day. How amazing is it to freeze those moments forever? To remember the messy faces, make-believe, the tired cries, and all of the things in between! The more Daniel and I grow in our love for our craft the more we have an appreciation for these little moments. Day in the Life sessions make my heart sing and I can’t wait to share with you more and more!

The Smiths are one of my favorite families to photograph! We’ve done so many fun sessions together! When I approached them with the idea of a Day In The Life session they didn’t quite know what to make of it, but they  said “we trust you!” There was still a mix of that old system of how we did things so there’s a mix of moments and posed here, but it’s moving towards a story and stories made to be told over and over. “Life is a book. We fill the pages” – Victoria Valentine.

When I arrived not everyone was quite ready yet, which was okay in my book! It allowed me to spend some time watching Raymond with his Aunty Em. They played and played until it was time for Baby Gabe to get in the spotlight. Little Ray loves being a big brother and put on his superhero mask & cape to take care of Baby Gabe. It was a beautiful afternoon capturing tons of sweet moments & snuggles! I can’t wait for the next time!

XOXOXO,

A Day in the Life with the Smith Family – Kernersville, NC

Shannon and her sweet family are one of my favorites to get to spend time & hang out with! Shannon always makes me look fabulous when I get my hair done with her and in turn I make her & her family look fabulous with our photography! This time she brought along her extended family too and they are a riot, let me tell you what!

We ventured into Shannon’s neighbor’s property (don’t worry permission was given) in Kernersville, NC and found this fantastic field with a very cool old building. We watch the kids run, snuggled sweet new babies, and showcased the legacy of generations for this sweet family. I can’t wait until we get to spend quality time with this sweet family again!

XOXOXO,
Mabyn
