A Self Portrait Documenting Family In the Now

I commend anyone that gets in front of the camera to begin with. Creating an image with 6 people, fully unplanned, that tells the true tale of their world together is a true art form. How would you document your family in the now? Loving how Katie Myrick made this iconic photo happen, this is August’s Iconic Photo.

What Katie Myrick had to say about her iconic photo:

“Every person within this frame has molded and shaped me into the woman I am today. This is my iconic image. This is my life in a nutshell. My grandmother, mother, two daughters and son….They are my beating heart. This past mothers day, gathered around my 50 year old hand me down table (that belonged to my grandma pictured above), we made a beautiful memory. With my camera up on the tripod, 35mm lens and 10 second timer…..I documented us the way we are. A whole lot of crazy and a whole lot of love. (This year, I’ve made it my mission to be IN the frame with my children, my series of images is called #thedocumentedphotographer).”

I help client documentary photographers fine-tune their workflow + marketing game, so their work is filled with sessions that represent their voice + client values while earning a living. I shoot undirected, off-beat stories that aren’t preserved often enough (like the story of couples before starting a fam or becoming empty-nesters – a dream project of mine), so my clients’ old box of photos is a meaningful, visual diary of their life + legacy to leave behind.
