Documentary Family Photography Mentoring Session – And a Day in the Life with the Halters

A few weeks ago, I was honored to get to spend the weekend mentoring Krystal in all things Day in the Life photography. We even got to spend the afternoon photographing one of my favorite families (the family who were my guinea pigs for my very first Day in the Life ever in 2013!), the Halters. We didn’t shoot at my typical Day in the Life times (first thing in the morning or afternoon until bedtime), so we caught a different look into their lives. Playing at home, and an afternoon at a local brewery (where there happened to be face painting and ice cream!)…this is how my family spends our weekends too! Thanks for having me, yet again, Halters!!
