Day in the Life: Peter and Jenny

When you and your spouse are both turning the big 5-0 AND it’s your 20 year wedding anniversary AAAAND you adopted your first puppy, you have a Day-in-the-Life Photoshoot to capture your life as it is right now.

It’s a way to celebrate as well as commemorate a big year!

We started in Peter and Jenny’s kitchen with making shakes, cutting flowers, and playing with their pup.  It was a scorching hot afternoon, so the fruit shakes and watermelon smoothies were refreshing.  They played a frisbee game in the backyard with made-up obstacles, which is how most of Peter’s games are played – heehee.  And as part of their anniversary milestone, they flipped through their wedding album where the kids giggled at how young their parents looked.  Afterwards, they went on a hike, a beloved activity they do as a family and ended the day with a game of basketball.

The 4-hour shoot was truly a slice of their life at age 50 with sporty teen children and young puppy, and it was an honor to capture it all.

Interested in seeing another Day in the Life session?  YES!  Okay, here are a few more:  Chris & Sinead, The S Family, Larry & Juana.
[I don't shoot a lot of DITL, though I love them, so be warned that you'll see a big evolution of my editing style with these 3 blog post links, which spans 10 years!  The way I shoot and visual imagery I prefer have stayed the same.]

Let me know what you think of DITL shoots!  Do you see the value of them or do you think it’s better to have several shorter shoots instead?
