That’s what Intentional Documentary™ is all about.

I used to book "documentary clients," but my work was still a bit… OFF. It felt like they were playing dress-up for the camera.

With lots of trial & error, I learned clients want documentary family photography, but sometimes, they don’t know how to get it… they don’t understand their “role.”

It’s not your fault, or theirs. This approach is still a bit foreign and fear of how the photos can turn out can set in. So, your well-intended clients try to control the outcome by choosing locations and/or activities + even their wardrobe based off what they believe will be better for the camera. They're attached to the outcome of their investment, after all.

This easily leads the photography from being the honest story you wanted to preserve to inauthentic and a bit awkward.

I’m going to teach you how to nip that in the bud and maintain your documentary shooting approach!

– Amber DiCicco, photographer

I’ve felt stuck and boxed in creatively and really really really wanting to make the switch to only doing documentary photography, because of how impactful it was for me to have actual memories of what life looked like for my first year of marriage documented. I just haven’t had the tools and knowledge to know what to do.

Intentional Documentary™ did that for me. It touches on so many different aspects of documenting for a client. From solidifying and re-invigorating my WHY to practical steps in working with clients to give them the best experience possible.

It helped me to pinpoint major flaws in my business as well as encouraged me to step out of my box and finally begin developing my marketing voice.”

My name is Marie and I’m the Founder of Fearless and Framed®.

In 2013, I felt like I had multiple personalities as a photographer. There was the real-story driven, all-emotion work I was recognized for: the photos of my life and family.

Then, there was the work I was hired for: loosely directed images, infused with everything I could do to get my clients to laugh, kiss, smile, and appear happy and in love…. All things I thought I had to do to make clients happy. Pretty, but not ME.

Inside, I wanted clients to have what I got out of photography: vivid, mental images of their values + living memories in tangible form. Relief + security in photographic form.

(all made with a documentary approach)

The only question was how? And oh boy do I have some stories there as I figured it out!
