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, Florida family photographers who are available right now. Find yours today!

I'm Malu and Maria's mother and Andre's wife. My essence seeks emotion. I look for smiles of reunions, connections, achievements ... I look for tears of longing, happiness, overcoming ... I look for normal, but diverse and unique stories. I believe that each person is like a book. We have a beginning, middle, and end. The plot of each person’s life happens in a different way and we don’t always know what it really is. Today I just want to listen more, observe more, and love more. I am an eternal apprentice.
Hi, I'm Sam: a photo-taking, baby-making, adventure-seeking mama + photographer. For my "Real Life Family" sessions, I prefer to ditch the park setting and capture your family as you REALLY ARE. I offer both "Breakfast" and "Bedtime" sessions, where I shadow your crew for a few hours either first thing in the morning, or last in the evening, to capture the details of your world and the moments that make up your days. Let's trade in the matching outfits on the beach for pajamas with a side of morning cuddles and teeth brushing, or dinner time chaos and bedtime stories. Or invite me along for your day at Disney or fishing in the Keys! Come home from vacation with a souvenir that really brings back the memories and keeps them for safe keeping. I'm a mother of two myself, and nothing we own means more to me then our family albums: easily the first thing I'd grab on the way out if the place was on fire. Those albums begin at birth, and there are few things like the honor of taking someone's very first portrait. I've had the joy of supporting women in labor and documenting the last leg of their journey to meeting their new babies. There's nothing like it. Before becoming parents, my husband and I specialized in destination wedding photography and have had the pleasure to document wedding celebrations all over the United States, the Bahamas, and into Europe. Beyond photography, I love being a mom and a wife, gardening, decorating, dancing, traveling, sewing, clean sheets, dinner parties, snow boarding, camping, IPAs, hiking, and that tingly feeling when you first get into a hot bath. I love great late-night conversations that dig deep, karaoke in dive bars where people are performing like they're on the verge of a midlife crisis, and the rush of Christmas mornings. And I'd love to connect with fresh families that dig my style and would like to document their families.
Julie's fascination with photography started early. Hanging in her family home were two side-by-side portraits: one of her sister, perfectly coiffed and surrounded by carefully arranged stuffed animals; and one of Julie, tangled hair, one sock falling down and struggling to put on a pair of shoes. Julie passed those photos every day until the idea that people and character should be in photographs was as second nature as bee-bopping to ’80s music. Fast-forward fifteen years and you will meet a self-made, successful, award-winning artists who, despite her interest in all visual mediums, has devoted herself exclusively to candid moment driven photojournalistic photography in Key West, Florida. Below the bubbly surface that will charm, is a serious professional and incredible artist.
I want to capture the family moments that have the real laughing, the struggles, the accidents, the tears, and all kinds of irreplicable moments. No need the family to pose in front of my camera, just be whoever you are, the real you is the most precious part of your family story.
My passion is the capture your favorite moments in life and tell the stories that surround them. Maybe your favorite moments are going on epic adventures and exploring new wonders with the family. Or maybe your favorite moments are playing the in the backyard with the kiddos. Or perhaps your favorite moments are the quite moments just before bedtime. It's in those favorite moments when your life truly happens—not in the uncomfortable (and sometimes stressful) staged photos you're probably used to. That's why I'm dedicated to providing a stress-free experience and authentic photographs that shine of who you are, and not just what you look like.
Hi, y'all! Here's the deal. I don't like posed. I don't like dressed-to-impress. I don't like fake smiles. What do I like? Real-life. Natural interactions. Sweet moments of everyday life. I'm the mom of four kids. As they've grown up, I've found value in the little interactions. I know it can be hard to open up your crazy, messy life to a stranger, but I promise you that it will lead to photos that will remind you of this time in your family's life. It's amazing all the little things you can miss as you go throughout your busy day, but if I'm there I can help you hold on to those special times, secret glances, and funny moments. Give me a call - I'd love to get to know you and what's special about your family.
