Day In the Life Sessions

Tell the story of your everyday life with a candid, daylong shoot that captures a moment in time with your loved ones. No matter what stage of life your family is in, you'll want to remember it forever.

Life flies by too quickly, don't you think?

Do you ever feel like you blink and an entire year has already flown by? With so many daily demands, it's difficult to find time to pick up the camera and capture milestones for your family (or to even learn how to take good family photos!).

Someday, all you'll have left are Your memories of what today was like. 

Here's the unavoidable truth: We all age. Kids grow up. Times change. That's why it's so important to live in the present and capture what life is like now. Parents — you only get 940 weekends with your kids before they fly the coop. Why not document one of those days so you can relive it over and over again, forever? 

Day in the life sessions

I'll tag along with you and your loved ones for an entire day during these immersive sessions, documenting the beauty of the everyday life you've cultivated. Together, we'll freeze this moment in time and celebrate your legacy.

"We’ve invested in TLC photography for the last 3 years and couldn’t be happier with the photos provided. This year, we decided to document a special beach trip with family in a Slice of Life session. It was the BEST investment I’ve made in a very long time. We’ve lived away from our family for a while and found the perfect moment to finally reunite with grandparents, all together, after COVID. Tess accompanied us for a few hours and captured so many beautiful moments. The best part was that I didn’t feel like I had to be grabbing my phone to snap pics from afar. I highly recommend TLC Photography for her professionalism, quality of work, great communication, and her welcoming way." - Clarissa Barrera

“For the first time in a LONG time, I was able to enjoy my family without feeling like I was going to miss catching the memory."

The Process


If you like what you see and want to book a session, visit our contact page and fill out an inquiry form. When I've received your inquiry, I'll book a video call so we can learn more about each other.

To reserve your session, you’ll need to pick a date, sign a contract, and put down a non-refundable 50% deposit. The other 50% is due two weeks before the session. Once you’ve booked your session, we’ll begin the planning process! I’ll send you a complimentary gift and planning questionnaire. Before your session, we'll have a quick planning call to make sure we know the game plan for the day.

It’s time for the FUN part! We’ll meet up at the location of our choice. We'll hang out and do whatever you and your loved ones feel like doing, whether it's a day at home or a romp on the town. I'll take candid photos throughout the day. 

The day after your session, I’ll send you 3-5 images as a teaser of what’s to come. Then I'll start curating a gallery of photos that tell the story of a day in your life. You'll receive your digital gallery in approximately 1 month.

Pick Your Final Photos 


Once you receive your photo gallery, you can pick the photos you want included in your album. I'll design the album, send the draft over to you to review, and then order the book.

Have Questions?
I Gotchu!

What is your turnaround time?

My turnaround time is one month. 

How and when do I pay for my session?

I require a 50% non-refundable deposit to reserve your session date. The rest must be paid two weeks before your session. I’ll send you a digital invoice that’s payable by card or wire transfer. (Ask me about payment plans!)

What if i need to cancel or reschedule my session?

If you’ve already paid for the session, then your 50% deposit is non-refundable. I will try my best to accommodate a new date, but if I’m already booked on that day, then your deposit is still non-refundable. If I have to cancel on you, I will refund the full cost of your session and recommend you 3-5 photographers in my place.

How does photo delivery work?

I will send your photo story via Pixieset, a gallery-sharing site. From there, you can order prints and other physical products. 

Can I edit my own photos?

Nope. You had hundreds of photographers to choose from, and hopefully you picked me because you like my style and aesthetic. That means no Instagram filters, apps like Facetune/Vsco, or cropping images, either. 

How do you deliver final images?

I use a gallery-sharing website called Pixieset. You can download your final photos in bulk or one at a time in high-res or web-ready sizes. It will be password-protected but easily shareable with friends and family.

Will I see every photo you take at my session? 

Nope. To honor the integrity of my work and of this industry, what you see in your final gallery is what you get. You didn’t just hire me to take your pictures—you hired me to curate the final product. By only sending you select images, I am saving you the time and energy it takes to sift through the hundreds of photos taken during the session. It’s super important that we trust each other when we enter into a contract—so trust me when I tell you that the images I deliver will be the best of the best.
