Documentary Photography ~ Create a Legacy with Family Photography in Rhode Island

What exactly is “documentary photography”?

Documentary photography usually refers to a popular form of photography used to chronicle significant and historical events.  It is typically covered in professional photojournalism, or real attempts to produce truthful, objective, and usually candid photography of a particular subject, most often pictures of people.” ~Wikipedia

Let’s break this down a bit and look at what the heck this means for you and me:

1.  Documentary means that it happens naturally, in your environment.

2.  Record a person’s true self and their real personality.

3.  Creates a story and leaves a legacy – think documentary films and famous portraiture

I love documentary style photography for portraiture because it speaks to what’s relevant to all of us and every day life.

When faced with a choice, many of my clients will choose the documentary style image for their wall art because it reflects who they are and their world in a way that they can relate to and how they want to remember.  Even if it’s a portrait, there’s that something more in the image that has a documentary element to it like a particular look, body language or an object that’s significant in telling what’s unique about them, but at the same time, what connects us all as humans on the planet.

It’s easy.

It’s your story.

Celebrate your life.
