Weekly Photo Challenge – Honestly Documented VI

Pin now for inspiration later >> See all of our past winner collages on our Honestly Documented Pinterest Board.

Honestly Documented on Fearless and Framed is the easiest way for you to become a featured photographer! This weekly photo challenge will give you the best documentary photography inspiration for your sessions. It’s open to any subject matter – details, wedding photography, love, connection, children, family photography, you name it as long as it is honestly documented. We love learning about photographers through their Facebook posts and often check them out for upcoming full blog features and more.

Post your {Honestly Documented} themed photos to our Facebook Timeline + tag your photography page. Feel free to add 1-4 sentences to your photo as a backstory (as seen with some of the submissions below).


What does Honestly Documented mean? 

It’s when a moment presents itself, unprovoked by you as the photographer. It’s when in an instant, what you see makes you grab the camera and your fingers shake to hit that shutter before you miss the moment. You’ve documented a detail in it’s honest form. Being in practice with this type of shooting will give you the greatest gift, to grow your own vision. What you see with start to change. You will look at life with a new pair of eyes that will help you when photographing clients. Honestly Documented is for photographers that want to grow their business on creating memorable photos which show clients their world when no one is looking.

Disclaimer: By posting your photo on our Facebook Timeline, you are giving us permission to feature your photo in our regular blog posts (if chosen) and shared throughout our social media platforms (with credit to you, of course!) + a Pinterest collage of our weekly winners. Readers: Be sure to give credit to the photographer if you pin an image.

Congratulations to the chosen photographers this week!

“Fin and Diesel. Dogs with human expressions.”



Angela Douglas Photography



Applewood Photography

“My husband is the kind of man who plays with our daughter as much as I do, who builds forts out of black bed sheets and furniture. Here they are, hiding out in the fort.”



Ellen Elizabeth Photography



Joni Burtt Photography



Kala Rath Photography



Karen Long Photography

“I love to catch moments like this, my big girl and little girl having a sneaky afternoon nap.”



Kendall Stoy Photography

“I loved this shot for a few different reasons….to me it totally sums up the reality of documentary style photography. Mom’s little inspirational block by the sink says it best! Cheese wrapper, nose sucker, and all!”



Lacey Newman Photography

“Four generations of exceptional women. I am lucky to call them family.”



Lady and the Lens – Christine Singleton

“Turned his whole room upside down looking for a little football guy that came in a lunch meal. We later found his football guy….

…in the diaper bag.”

Nicole Humphrey Photography

“This girl of mine, who loves with her whole heart, she waits for me at the top of the stairs because she likes to walk down holding hands.”



Shanna Hendrickson Photography

“Was taking photos of them playing together, but this one moment stopped me. I just see so much love and happiness in her face looking at him, and it struck me how blessed she (we) are to have him.”

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.
