Alexandra Bagley knows how to party. If I were to ask you to list all of the items that should ideally be present at a 5-year-old kid’s birthday party, I guarantee you that Alex made sure they were present for her son’s celebration (and half of it she made by hand!) Lego-man shaped crayons: check. Party blowers: check. Homemade piñata: check. A trillion balloons, all of which the children dragged into the birthday boy’s room and freaked out about, causing a beautiful chaos that most photographers only dream of: check and check, my friends.Read More
How is Emmy a documentary photographer’s dream? Let me count the ways. A ballerina through and through, Emmy doesn’t walk, she leaps and pirouettes through her day, her every movement a photo just waiting to be captured.

And then my heart exploded.Read More
Even before what turned out to be my very favorite part of the Ryan’s mini documentary photography session in Denver, I’d already captured so many wonderful, beautiful moments that I knew the family (and I!) would love. So when they told me it was naked baykid jump on the bed time? Well that was just the cherry on top.Read More
When I tell people that my photo sessions are neither posed nor directed, the first thing they ask is: "Okay, then what should we do?" The short answer is: whatever you want!

So here are some ideas about what to do during a documentary family photography session.Read More
