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.
