Why trust your memories to a shoebox full of snapshots?
... when A DAY IN OUR LIFE can provide you with a photographic document of your family life at the dawn of the Millennium.
B. D. Colen, award-winning photographer and Pulitzer Prize-winning former reporter who teaches documentary photography at M.I.T., the Harvard Extension School, and at the Maine Photographic Workshops, will spend an entire day with your family - from when you wake up, to when you go to sleep - unobtrusively making candid photographs that truly capture family activities, interactions, and relationships. You may chose to have a typical weekend day of "doing nothing" documented, or you may chose a family gathering, birthday party, or outing. What ever kind of day you select, and where ever you spend it, B. D. Colen will photograph all day and will then select 80 to 100 images that best tell the story of your day, and use them to produce a 10" x10" hardcover, 80 page book your family will treasure for generations.
As you can see from the photographs in the Day In Our Life gallery, what will make your book so special is not what you do on your day, but the fact that B. D. Colen is there to record it. These are images unlike any produced as part of a typical family portraiture or wedding photography sessions. These are images that you, your children, and your children’s children will look at decades from now and be able to say, 'Yes, that really was A Day In Our Life…"
Let's hope it gets good ones soon!
