Documentary Family Photography
Documentary Family Photography is a new approach. The images and collections that are created from this approach are raw, natural, organic and authentic. The photographer has to work to strict photography guidelines, where they DO NOT touch, move or direct anything in the scene (that includes directing people, or turning on lights, or opening blinds etc – the rules are clear… DO NOT interfere with the scene, other than with your presence). The aim, after all, is to capture the beautiful ordinary life as it unfolds.
The photographer is there as a witness to ‘how things are’, and their goal is to capture all of those amazing moments without influence. And you would be surprised how many special moments happen in amongst the beautiful ordinary.
Feather Touch Photography utilises this approach in sessions such as a Day in the Life (full and half days), Maternity, Birth and First Glimpse sessions, for those absolute precious in home newborn moments and also during short story telling sessions – like a trip to get ice cream or Limited Edition Sessions like baking Christmas cookies with Grandma…
This type of photography captures authenticity – sweet little intimacies, cheeky glances, people interacting, living and loving. It’s about telling the story of your everyday life – right at this moment in time!!! The imagery captures all those little details, little moments, little memories that we cherish, without knowing… these sessions are all about “Remembering what we Forgot”.
