The Best of 2019—Marie Masse’s Tiny Stories

January 2019 We did what we swore we never would: we bought a house that stretched our finances to where we don’t have the money to make this house a home. We don’t like the inside of our home. Most days, it’s fine. We moved here for the nature, not for the house itself. Some […]

“Nanny available, early July” a Goodbye Story Documented Well

How does it feel to give birth and go back to work after 12 weeks leaving your new baby with the nanny? How much trust and courage does it take? How does it feel to raise kids who aren’t your own? How much love and patience does it take? And how does it feel when […]

Documenting Real Stories: Bring Your Camera to Girls’ Day

Over dinner she talked about this […]

The Tradition of Japan’s Children’s Day in Pictures

Living here in Japan has given us many opportunities to experience the Japanese culture. It’s one like I have never experienced: full of celebrations, family, history and colors. The older generation is sure to pass down traditions and family history to their children and grandchildren. Every month, there’s traditional festivals. May’s celebration was Children’s Day. […]

Document People Around You, Not Just the Kids

When Marie of Fearless and Framed said she noticed that documentary photographers aren’t generating a ton of images with adult interactions, I wholeheartedly agreed. People love children in all of their raw and beautiful glory. We’re drawn to their cute expressions and the way they see the world with such wonder. We hope that by taking photos […]
