A Day in the Life - South Bend Storytelling/Documentary Photography Session

"Do a day in the life shoot," they said. "It'll be fun," they said.

It's funny, because before I got into photography, even as a hobby, I was like everyone else and underestimated how difficult it is to get THE shot (let alone a multitude of shots) in one session. And now, after nearly a year of practice and a very painfully acute appreciation for the difficulty of having everything come together to get THE shots...I still underestimate the difficulty! Every. Single. Time.

Good thing I like a challenge!

In all seriousness though, this was such a a challenging but fun project. It wasn't a special day; just a random Tuesday which equates to swim lessons, outings with friends, grocery shopping, and good ol' fashioned home time. I can't wait to look back on this type of day 5, 10, 30 years from now and smile at the way Baby F practiced facial expressions that look JUST like Daddy, or turns away random bites of food and devours others, or smiles with her whole self . This is what storytelling and documentary photography is all about. All the memories. All the feels.
