Documenting Time

Iconic Photo of When Time Stands Still As a Parent

It’s all in the quiet moments when you are a parent. This is when the refection and thoughts about time hit you. Being up late in the night and early morning or after a tantrum or after a nap with snuggles reluctant to break and move forward with your day. We’ve all been there as parents, […]

Creating an Iconic Photo of a Man

How do you photograph an adult, a man, a teenager, a couple… etc… in a documentary-style way? This question is asked a lot around the Fearless and Framed community. My response is always this simple: photograph them being them, doing what they do. The results will always leave you with a photo that sums up […]

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 […]

One of the Most Timeless Iconic Photos: First Breaths

No other image is as classic and timeless than that of your very first photo. So often we see this image of baby in the traditional pink and blue cap, laying in the hospital bassinet. Today, with birth photography on the rise, the first photo of baby is becoming one of baby’s first breath, first […]

Photographing the Tired, Sick, and Vulnerable

In the first seconds, I saw this image, the thought that crossed my mind was, “I’ve so been there.” As a parent of two toddlers, specifically one little boy that has had over a dozen ear infections, I’ve seen this scene more than I’d like to count. I love Rachel’s perspective on photographing the non-happy moments… […]

Iconic Photo – Our Family Matriarch

This photo nearly made my jaw hit the floor. I found it completely breathtaking and am honored Angela has shared the image and her thoughts with us. I not only love that this is a special image with a Grandparent in the frame, but the words of the relationship between Angela’s Grandma and cousin are […]

Documenting a Timestamp

Documenting a Timestamp in Your Life

There is a defining moment every mother can relate to: the moment you realize your last baby is your last. ‘This is it,’ you think to yourself… likely with big, crocodile tears in your eyes. For me, it’s hit home more than once and I try to embrace baby and toddlerhood as best I can. […]

Iconic Self Portrait from Soul Threading: Light + Children

I’ve followed Soul Threading for awhile now and am always inspired. I was over the moon when I saw Stacey’s Iconic Photo come in. We’ve seen detail shots, loved ones, symbolic portraits, but she was the first artist to share a self portrait to us. Getting in the frame is something I rarely do, so to me, […]

Documentary Wedding Iconic Photo from Ian Bursill

Aside from photographing my children, it was photographing weddings where I really learned the backbone to documentary photography. Conversations, reactions, moments, and stolen looks are just a glance of what you can really find on a wedding day. Weddings are a perfect place to practice documentary photography, because as the photographer, we are observing and shooting […]

evoking emotion

A Portrait Honoring a Friend – Iconic Image from Dokk Savage Photography

I stumbled upon this photo through a Facebook Group I belong to. Fearless and Framed doesn’t post a ton of portrait photos. We live and breathe documentary style photography here. However, the caption to this photo captivated me. This may not be considered a documentary photo, but Charlene’s reaction to the words of the photographer are […]

Mesmerizing Photo From Shooting Directly Into the Sun

Shooting directly into the sun can be a real challenge… and could even ruin your photo. Ari Dorfman posted this image in our Facebook Group & I was taken in by the light + the connection he made with his daughter (the subject within the photo). So much went into the photo to make it […]

Iconic Photo – It’s About What You Don’t See

The blue sky in this photo, taken in the center of suburbia, is like a statement piece necklace on your business casual outfit. In Lauren’s description, you’ll learn that this Iconic Photo was produced during a documentary session. What I personally see in this photo, goes beyond what you actually see (just as Lauren mentions). Yes, her […]
