Mariana Jimenez Photography's Documentary-Style Adventure Session



If you want a documentary-style photoshoot that captures real, genuine, intimate moments in your family's/friends'/workplace's day-to-day life, look no further. This package is designed to provide you with a collection of pictures that aren't only planned and posed, but document a story. For example, I may accompany you and your family on a hike, or sit in the background of a meeting at your workplace, capturing the dynamic between the people involved. Rather than spend much of the session guiding you with posing prompts, my main role in this particular session is to serve as a bystander in the background, capturing raw moments between people.

Get ready to be yourself, have some fun, feel like a paparazzi is following you, and go about your day-to-day life with this session, with some occasional posing prompts. That's all you have to do to prepare for this session- show up. With our planning done ahead of time, the story will tell itself on its own through our images. This package includes 2 hours of photo coverage, with 75 edited, high-resolution images delivered via a password-protected online gallery.


To accurately capture the essence of your group of people and fully illustrate your story, prior to your session we will: Hold a 1:1 or group consultation (these are currently being done over the phone/Zoom due to COVID-19 protocols) where we will get to know each other a little bit. I will ask you about you and the group of people who will accompany us on the session (your family, friends, colleagues, etc.), and ask you about your background story with these individuals, in order to accurately showcase your personalities through the photos. Then, together we will decide on technical aspects of the shoot, such as wardrobe, location, etc. After our consultation, I will prepare a mood board using a collection of online images that suit the above details discussed, to give you a sense of direction and to ensure that we are both on the same page about what the intended final product of your session is.

Mariana Jimenez Photography

Hi there! I'm so happy you're here. My name is Mariana, and I'm a self-taught photographer based in Victoria, BC. Ever since I was little I have been fascinated by photography, and particularly portraiture. I believe there is a moment between "the stimulus and the response"; i.e. the second between when the photographer issues the command for a pose and the subject decides how to re-enact it, and that split second is where the most genuine human emotion is conveyed. My goal is to capture these candid, real moments, to give people invaluable moments to treasure for a lifetime.
