Family documentary sessions, unlike lifestyle sessions, are unposed and completely raw in nature. The messy kitchen, uncoordinated outfits, bed head and marker stains on your child's chest from yesterday's craft tells a story, rather than takes away from a photo. These sessions document the daily nuances of your everyday. Elise doesn't direct the session, but does discuss with you what part of the day or event is important to capture, whether it is your child's birthday morning, a Tuesday evening eating your favorite meal, or a Fall afternoon grocery shopping. After getting to know your family & letting your children get comfortable with her being around, Elise becomes a fly on the wall following your family around for 2-3 hours. Family documentary sessions include 40-60 hand-edited images in a hard-cover photo book.
