Naomi Maya Photography's 2hr "Day-in-the-Life" Family Session



You'll get spontaneous and candid images of your family just being themselves. Because I'm just a quiet observer (no flash) you'll quickly and easily forget that I'm there. With a documentary session like this, you get to enjoy your family, just as they are, just being themselves. And, you'll get to BE IN THE PHOTOS with your kids... which your kids will treasure when they're older. They'll get to see mommy and daddy playing with them, cuddling them and just being with them during the day. Documentary photos are especially nostalgic because you'll have the memories of the places you actually spent the majority of your time in; your home and around your neighbourhood... not a special location that you went to once for a family portrait. This is something beautiful to pass on to them when they are older. *covid update: I am not currently doing any indoor documentary shoots until further notice.


Where do you travel for this session? I travel within Victoria to Langford. Outside this area is $0.50/km.

Beyond planning what activities you'd like to capture (playing a game, going to the park, a bike ride etc.), nothing else is premeditated. On the day of the session, I'll be like a fly on the wall and after a while you'll probably forget I'm there. You don't need to make your house spotless, or dress your kids in color coordinated clothes. (We all know that's not how anyone lives anyway, so don't worry about it.) Goodness knows my house is never spotless! The session IS about documenting and remembering what it's like to be in your family today, right now... because very soon it's going to change. Real is more interesting than perfect, and it's how your kids will remember their childhood. You can expect a lot of black and white photos, since color often takes away from the emotion of the moment. As a mom myself, I know that all kids have their moments and I won't expect them to pose for the camera. They can just be themselves. The session will be beautiful and authentic no matter what. ;)

Like most parents, my favourite thing to photograph are my children! You want amazing photos, but you also want a fun and relaxed experience for your family. You're pretty sure they will "cooperate" for a short time, but if they're young, you know it won't last long before they lose interest and want to do something else. You're in luck! I have kids too, and I know exactly how to appeal to their way of thinking! Your family session will be flexible and child-focused.
