Washington DC family photographer Ana Elena Alvarez

One day I found myself between posed portraits, which I felt kind of faked and did not reflect my style, and documentary photography, which captures real family moments but sometimes feels too dark or too raw. So, I created my own style of photography. An unscripted relaxed photography, with a clean beautiful edit. I've been a professional photographer for several years and I have had the honor to be part of several family celebrations and special moments. Since the moment I transformed my business into documentary photography, I've never been happier. The individuals and families I photograph are more than clients, they are true connections, and I am privileged to be part of their lives. I’m truly lucky, I have the best customers, I really do!

Washington DC documentary family photography by Natasha Lamalle

My focus is on small moments between friends and lovers, the split seconds of joy, intimacy, and authenticity that deserve to be memories but are often missed by more classic photographers. I let my work provide a window into the most meaningful moments of your family and/or wedding, those that you’ll witness and those that you won’t, and I celebrate your journey beyond. As a photojournalist, I have won many international photo competitions, and have been selected for many collective exhibitions in Paris, Great Britain, and Finland. My personal work is an important part of my photography skills.

Chicago family photojournalism by Sherry Tong of Illinois

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.

In addition to a fine arts degree in photography, I have trained with world-renowned portrait and dance photographers from Australia to New York City. I have recently been featured in international publications such as Grace Ormonde, Bride Magazine and the Knot and have received numerous awards from The Wedding Photojournalist Association. In 2010 I wrote a book, "Diving Doggies: A Celebration of Play Underwater" and in 2014 "Shake, Rattle and Shoot: The Business of Baby Photography." In 2018 we released a book, "Pigwrecked," photographed by Brooke Mayo and Illustrated by Candace Owens.
