The video and pictures below are from my most recent "Day in the Life" session with a beautiful mom and daughter. Christi is the wife to an amazing Chef in San Diego, mother to 2 gorgeous daughters and one of the most sought after full-time restaurant manager in San Diego. This beautiful lady works around the clock and because of her industry doesn't get much time with her little girl Alana. Alana is one of the smartest little kindergartners I know! She is by far also one of the most energetic and loving little girls too. Christi like most working moms and dads struggles with the fact that she isn't able to be with her family as much as she would like.
When Christi isn't putting out flames at work, running an entire restaurant and carpooling daily she is able to finally have a day off ... when she isn't doing regular mom and wife chores, she goes all out for her beautiful little girl. From breakfast together at Cafe Topez in Carlsbad to seeing the box office smash "Cinderella" at the Regal Cinemas Carlsbad 12 theater. She tops of the morning with a little trip to the Disney Store at the Carlsbad mall where her beautiful little girl falls head over heels for a Cinderella dress that was made just for her!
Have you ever thought to yourself "now these are the moments I want captured", but you've been the one stuck behind the camera or worse the iPhone camera! If you've got kids or loved ones that you enjoy interacting with, playing with or sharing stories with then I'm sure you are shaking your head in agreeance.
I find myself going through old pictures of my daughters younger years and realizing I'm not in many of them. Why, well clearly I'm the photographer in the family! But like most moms and dads we tend to be the one taking the photos so we aren't in any of the photos with our kids and other loved ones.
This is why I have fallen in love with Modern Storytelling through photography. I take a journalistic approach while capturing true raw moments that happen in your day to day life.
If you are interested in having a Modern Storytelling Portrait Experience, contact Heather J. Potter Photography.
Day In The Life Photography Sessions are all the rave and clients are requesting them over traditional portraits sessions.
You may be asking yourself, what's a "Day In The Life Photography Session" It's where I come into your home, photograph you and your family while you go about your daily routines. As you cherish the moments you are sharing with your spouse, children and other loved ones in your home, I capture the moments one image at a time. No more chasing after the kids to make them sit still for a pose portrait. Now you can chase around after your kids while you have a tickle fight, or chase after them outside while you enjoy your little one playing in your backyard. Spend less time worrying about what everyone is going to wear and more time enjoying the time you have to spend together.
You can put your kiddo up on the counter while you make breakfast or teach them how to back a pie. You and your family will be center stage, the joy that comes from interacting with your family and loves ones while doing what you enjoy in the comfort of your own home will come out effortlessly.
Stay tuned for more Day In the Life Photography Sessions. If you are interested in your own Day In the Life Photography Session, please contact me.
I just so happen to catch Miss Alexia and Miss Madison putting up the Christmas tree.
