A Day in the Life with the Santiago Family

I’m introducing something brand new for families! It’s called a “Day In the Life” family session.

Imagine a completely different approach to capturing the uniqueness of family. Rather than getting dressed up and begging the kids to behave, we spend an entire day together at your home.

There’s no script, no wrong or right. You spend the day doing what you would typically do together. Bring on the laughing, the crying, and everything in between. Every little moment – the morning antics, the midday water fights, the naptime prayers – I’ll be there to document all of them.

The result is something incredibly special: a unique story of your family, just the way you are.

Each Day In the Life session includes a hand-crafted storybook photo album with the highlights of your day. You’ll also get to choose your favorite photo to hang as a beautiful, timeless canvas print in your home. Lastly, you’ll receive a digital download with a minimum of 300 edited images.

Life will move on, the kids will grow up and start lives of their own. But you will always have this memory of who you are as a family.

To kick off this special new offering for families, I’d like you to meet the Santiago Family. I recently spent a Day In the Life with this wonderful bunch. Their images portray a close knit family that loves to have fun, and knows how to love each other well. I hope you enjoy them even half as much as I enjoyed capturing them!

This kiddo had me laughing all day long. He has more fun in one day than you or I have in a month.Santiago_0025_Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0013_150714 Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0003_150714 Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0004_150714

Of course, his little sister is actually in charge in this household.Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0005_150714 Santiago_0024_Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0008_150714 Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0009_150714

Mornings usually start early for this family. Dad and Mom soak up as much time with the kids as they can.Santiago_0023_Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0014_150714 Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0017_150714Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0019_150714 Santiago_0022_Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0021_150714 Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0022_150714 Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0023_150714 Santiago_0021_Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0024_150714 Santiago_0020_Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0025_150714 Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0026_150714 Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0027_150714

“Hey Mom, can I help with the dishes?”

The Santiago’s are what you’d call “musically-inclined.”  Dad is teaching the kids how to sing and play instruments at an early age.Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0032_150714 Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0035_150714 Santiago_Day_in_the_Life_0036_150714
