Documentary family photography tells your family’s unique history. It’s an artful way to respect the seemingly usual routine, the little expressions and details, that makes up who you are and what you value. But we can also document very special days! Day in the Life graduation photography takes it up a notch–you’re still you, doing what you do, but on a grand scale!
For the Laing family, Alex’s graduation was a very big deal. Mom Jacquie was the chairperson of the grad committee, so she was super busy and really wanted to have documentary photography of her family’s celebration of their son. Extended family was there, too, which was extra special. So having a documentary family photographer there to capture the day she’d be nearly too busy to relish helped her to feel confident someone was saving their memories.
Graduation in Nelson B.C. is a really big deal. The whole town heads over to the Nelson District Community Complex for the grand march. Afterward, all the grads jump into dressed up vehicles and bikes for a cavalcade through town. The streets are packed with well wishers. What a special way to be honoured for getting through high school!
Day in the Life Graduation Photography
The purpose of my photographic work is to make family photos less about the photo, and more about the family. And so I’m so excited whenever a family connects with a photojournalistic approach to their family photos. Day in the Life graduation photography is a perfect time to not only tell your family’s story, but to enjoy the day yourself, knowing you can trust a professional photographer to understand the importance and relevance of your family relationships.
