Pittsburgh Documentary Family Photographer | Mary Beth Miller
Here is full blog post from another Documentary session
that took place in my client’s beautiful home in Pittsburgh!
I already shared their video here on my blog and now here is a large
selection of the images that I took while spending a few hours with them.
With this kind of session I tend to take a lot of photos to tell a story.
You may or may not have heard of the term documentary photo session,
but in short, it is a very laid back session where I document
your beautiful family doing the ordinary things that you do in your life!
They can also be called Storytelling Sessions, Day in the Life Sessions
and some even refer to them as Lifestyle Sessions.
But I prefer to call them “Real Life Family Sessions” because
Real Life is beautiful!
I want to forever capture these every day moments for you!
Those moments where you are
playing your kids favorite games or reading their favorite books,
preparing endless snacks, wiping tears, kissing boo-boos, playing at the park
or treating them to ice cream at the local ice cream shop!
The possibilities for this kind of session are endless!
Or we can just do them right in the comfort of your own home!
Stay tuned, because I am working on a blog post with all
of the details on what a Documentary Session is!
Here is a review that this lovely Mama left for me!
“Mary Beth Miller Photography is an absolute joy to work with. She came to our home to shoot a casual, real life photo shoot of me and my husband plus our 3 kids. We had so much fun with her that day. Our two girls loved her so much they thought she was here just to hang out with them! Her style was perfect for us. Mary Beth was able to capture the most simple and beautiful moments with total ease and without feeling like you are the subject of a portrait. She is so easy to be around and makes what could be awkward for some people a very pleasant memory. Mary Beth is a gem and her heart can be seen in her work. Our portraits had me speechless. They are priceless.” -Abby P.
Are you considering a fun and laid back session for your family?
A photo session that captures the beautiful moments of your everyday life?
Contact me for details or to get on my schedule!
We can have a photo session right in your home and backyard
while I document your family doing some of your favorite activities.
Or we can photograph your family at some of your favorite places like
the playground, frozen yogurt shop or walking around your neighborhood.
The possibilities are endless and we will plan the session just for your family
to make it unique to any other photo session!
Not all families were meant to be photographed in a field of flowers at sunset all dressed up!
Although I do this too and it can be beautiful,
this is just not the reality for most families!
