Are you Ready to Schedule a Documentary Family Photo Session?
FAMILY COMES FIRST - Recently, some of our United States family photojournalists have communicated their readiness to work with families who are able to carry on with their normal life and who want it documented. Family Photojournalist Association professional members offer a distinct and natural style of unobtrusive photography that will capture genuine, candid moments of you, your children, and even extended family enjoying time together...everyone gets in the pictures and you will likely forget the photographer is even there.
The purpose of documentary family photography is to tell a story — your story. You will be able to feel the love that you have for one another in the images. You will see the beauty that results when you are not posed or directed by your photographer to sit in a contrived position and smile on command at the camera. The FPJA has an abundance of top-ranked, Arizona family photographers who are available right now. Find yours today!

Not a lot of kids know what they want to be when they grow up by the time they’re 16. I did. I spent so many hours in the darkroom, carrying strips of film from class, I think it was pretty obvious that I had found my true calling, my passion, my future career. I headed off to the University of Missouri (MIZ!) to attend their prestigious journalism school, and from there I headed into the world of newspapers. My husband, Michael‘s job brought us out to Phoenix over seven years ago, and I decided to give family photography a try. I’m so very glad I did. I love photographing families, their joy, laughter, their connections, and yes, even tantrums. Life, real life, is all of those things. Now I’m a mommy, too, and I understand even better how important it is to document your life, your everyday, ordinarily wonderful life.
Hi All! I am a photojournalist dedicated to telling the story of your family through genuine, moment-driven photographs that will stand the test of time and be enjoyed by your family for generations to come. I'm a San Francisco-based photographer who, for over a decade, has spent most of my time covering newsworthy events both big and small. Before San Francisco, I was based in China. I've always been drawn to defining moments and the light that surrounds them. I've worked for newspapers and magazines spanning 6 continents as well as leading global companies and NGOs. Some notables are The Washington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Associated Press, The NBA, U.N.H.C.R., and The W.H.O. There is something inherently different about the way photojournalists see the world. I think bringing this unique view and moment-driven photography to families truly creates images that will last a lifetime.
As a father of 3 I know how crazy parenthood is. I also know how fast time goes by and how important it is to record those fleeting moments that make up this wild thing we call 'life'. That is why I feel, more strongly then ever, that it is very crucial to be as unobtrusive as I can be when making photographs of families so that I do not interrupt those moments that make this whole thing worthwhile and precious. Documenting those moments is not just for you, the parent, but more so for your children - for them to have an honest record of how your life and family really were... in all it's chaotic glory!

Arizona Birth Sessions at Home or Hospital

The right photographer will be able to use discretion while focusing on the fleeting moments that you will want to remember from your birth experience. Whether you plan to give birth at home or at the hospital, you can book a documentary birth session with a professional reportage-style birth photographer.
