A Day In The Life with Kelly Rodriguez
Hi! Here’s a little peek into a typical day in our house.

We are new to NYC, moved up from Miami, and are enjoying our first real change of seasons!

My husband is in his 1st year of a medical residency, so he is long gone before we even wake up in the morning. So our mornings typically look like this… both kids in my bed.

After a little cuddle time, it’s time to get ready(…)

7 hacks to photograph your day without losing your mind

 by Jessica Thomason
Capturing an entire Day in the Life for your family is a huge job.

You still have to parent your kids, prep meals, run errands, keep everyone alive. It’s just too much.

Ever started to pat yourself on the back for finishing a DITL only to realize it’s 10am? Yeah. Me too. But you are going to love having these memories – and so is your whole family. So check out these simple tips to make shooting your DITL as(…)

A Day In The Life with Winnie Bruce
I’m usually pretty good at documenting little things here and there. I possibly might have expected a bit too much from my family when I decided to take photos after a 25-hour flight, and adjusting to a 13-hour time difference.

My kids and I went home to the Philippines for almost four months. Prior to that, we did a cross-country move from California to Florida. We haven’t had a typical day in the life(…)

A Day In The Life with Lisa Benemelis
My day begins at 5:15 in the morning even though it is my birthday and I would much rather hang out in bed a little longer.  I face the day with a hot cup of coffee and 15 minutes of peace and quite before heading out to meet my oldest daughter at the trail for a long run.

My two daughters and I are training for the Women’s Nike Half Marathon that we will(…)

A Day In The Life with Elizabeth Blank
I initially chose Saturday, September 13th as my “day” because that was the day that I was traveling home from Click Away and, in my mind, it was going to be a calm day of travel filled with amazing architecture, interesting light and composition, and the comforts of home at the end of a long day. Well, isn’t it funny how our perception can be so different from actual reality? In reality, my(…)

A Day In The Life with Elena Blair
It is the first rainy morning this school year!  Daddy is already off to work and has a late meeting so he won’t be home until after bedtime tonight.  Bummer.  Everyone always climbs into our bed first thing.  I call it a Marlo love fest as the older two love to start their day loving on their baby sister.

Time to change the babies diaper and get her dressed.  Meanwhile, I encourage the other(…)

A Day In The Life with Melissa Gibson
A day in the life at my house is usually quite busy.  Things can get a little hairy with three girls, two dogs, one husband, soccer, horse riding lessons and homework.  I chose to photograph a typical Tuesday around here.  I’m now realizing that I somehow missed photographing homework time or all girls having their teeth brushing time, but I assure you that we did both.

Our day begins at 5:45 in the morning. (…)

A Day In The Life with Marissa Gifford
Hi there, everyone! I’m excited to share a special Day in the Life with you! Every summer our family visits a cabin on Swan Lake in NW Montana with my husband’s family. He’s one of 7 children, so it’s a week filled with fun, family, relaxation, reading, card games, water sports and cousin heaven for the little ones. This place holds a very special place in my family’s heart and visiting is always(…)

A Day In The Life with Annie Morris
August is my favorite month.  The weather is warm, but there is a coolness in the air. The crowds of tourists drift away and we are left to squeeze in as much summer fun as we can before the sun sets. This is what a day in the life on Cape Cod looks like.

A Day In The Life with Ardelle Neubert
Summer holidays mean more time with my boys (Coen and Jarett), summer heat (plus no snow, yeah) and spending our days in the beautiful mountain valley of Columbia Valley, BC. This was also a long weekend so hubby joined us, we got 5 whole days with dad, double yeah!

Starting my day at sunrise to go for a run.

Home for breakfast and a tea.

Jarett wasn’t too happy with my breakfast choice of oatmeal with(…)

A Day In The Life with Sarah Kossuch
Welcome to my daily life as a mom of four, a wife and a full time wedding photographer in the month of July!

Every morning varies whether I’m up first or the kids. It just so happened that on this particular day, I was up first. The living room is quiet however; it’s the calm before the storm – ha!

I’m a HUGE coffee gal. If I do not have my morning cup of Joe, I(…)

A Day In The Life with Elicia Graves
Our day gets started bright and early and I set the girls up with some paper, crayons and markers while I get them breakfast.  They show me their artwork with proud little faces and then they eat their breakfast while I step outside to water my succulents.

Lazy bones lounges in the living room while the girls are otherwise occupied.

We live about ten minutes from the beach and as it is a beautiful day, we(…)

A Day In The Life with Jenna Stoller

The Stoller kids are awake first. We are actually shy one as he is at a friends house. Saylor is always hungry in the morning and Ridge never is, so she is the breakfast assistant. It’s a breakfast of champions: wheat toast and homemade jam.

Ridge cuddles up with dad in bed. He is a very cuddly boy and usually is content lying beside one of us with a toy. You can see his helicopter(…)

A Day In The Life with Katie Woodard
So this is a typical day in my life… just kidding! However it was a recent, real and wonderful summer day!  I decided to document the last day of a 4 day river trip (full sun and all!), which is my very favorite way to spend time with my family. River running is where my husband and I met, and now I love sharing that love with my children. Our day began bright and(…)

Our day (for the most part)

Wake up call at 6:27am.

Take a step outside to water plants & pick veggies with my early riser.

Look at the dishes in the sink and decide to ignore them.

Now both boys are up and ready for breakfast and some PBS kids.

Get dressed and go to my favorite book store, McKay’s. Score multiple treasures.

Drive back home, make lunches and put boys down for naps. Me time with a side of(…)

A Day In The Life with Sarah Lalone

Welcome to a day in my life.  It always starts the same way barring some sort of emergency situation.  It starts with me seeing just how long I can stay in bed because that’s my favorite place to be.  Typically the dogs pile on me and Henry (my youngest) comes in to watch cartoons for a few minutes before we face the day.

Eventually I deal with the fact that I have to get up. (…)

A Day In The Life with Jen Bebb
Each day begins with a coffee delivery while I’m still in bed. Today it was my husband, but the boys take turns waking me this way too. They know I’m not a natural morning person, so they ease me into each day with coffee in bed and the time to read a few pages of whatever book I’m enjoying at the moment.

After 15 – 20 minutes, I head downstairs to join their morning routine.

A Day In The Life with Carolyn Brandt
This is what a random Thursday looked like. Mostly routine, but some unplanned. My boy running around sans undies in the morning before preschool? Routine. A pop-in visit from my husband’s aunt and sister to teach me a couple of Belizian dishes? Definitely unplanned. But my day also consisted of a delicious lunch from a farmers market that magically appears every Thursday, the inspection and eating of amazing honey right from the honeycomb courtesy(…)

A Day In The Life with Sarah Carlson
Our Fridays are typically unscheduled for the most part. After a few days of being on-the-go, it is nice for us to have a leisurely morning. Our day starts at 7:30. Kate is already up and out of bed by the time I run upstairs with my camera, but Caroline is still stuck in her crib, so she gets the first shot of the day. She wakes up happy, as usual.

My girls aren’t huge(…)

A Day In The Life with Bre Thurston
My day started off by sleeping in. Oh, you know, because my sweet 8 month old likes to wake up every hour and then be up for the day at 5am. Mama needed some extra sleep, so it was Will to the rescue! When I got out of bed around 7 this was the sight that greeted me.

I stumble into the kitchen and remember that our kitchen (the whole house really, let’s not kid(…)

A Day In The Life with Laurie Yuenger
I roll over and hit the off button…. 7am already.  I peel myself out of bed, instruct the boys to get ready, and make myself reasonably presentable (by 7 am standards) then I keep an eye out for the bus.

After they head off to fill their brains I can finish waking up, have a bite to eat and finish making myself look human.  I catch a glimpse of the laundry room, sigh, and throw(…)

A Day In The Life with Jo Lien
My husband works from home, and my teaching job only takes me out of the house one night per week, so we Liens have a very casual, laid-back routine most days.  It’s nice to set our own schedules, but sometimes, we’re a little prone to letting the day get away from us.  Lately, my husband has been the early riser in the family.  He will get up about an hour before I do, take(…)

A Day In The Life with Anita Martin
I had baby boy #2 on Christmas Day and the past month has been a blur of diapers and baby snuggles and an insane amount of coffee.  I am publicly thanking my brother-in-law for getting me a brand new coffee pot for Christmas (you will get to see this new beauty shortly).

This is a snapshot of my life on maternity leave.

Our days usually start at dark-thirty when we wake up to the cutest, loudest(…)

A Day In The Life with Kristen Ryan
Shooting a Day in the Life was a fun challenge and I’m so glad this project pushed me to capture a day’s worth of images. I chose a weekend day before Christmas as the holiday anticipation is one of our favorite times as a family.  This particular day was a gorgeous snow filled Sunday.

We spent the morning relaxing at home while the kids played.

We went to lunch at one of our favorite family(…)

A Day In The Life with Jackie Jean
I have to be honest and say that a “Day in the Life” project was a bit more challenging than I expected it to be. My usual means of photographing is setting up a scene rather than capturing what is happening at that exact moment. I learned I need to work on my stealth-paparazzi-mama mode a little more!

I chose a day during school vacation so it’s not our typical day in the life but(…)

A Day In The Life with Beth Orey
My days aren’t exciting to the outside world…I pack my daughter off to school before the sun is up and I stay at home with my son.  I run my business on the side and work when I can.  I try to spend as much time as possible with my little ones before they aren’t little anymore and be present with my husband as much as possible when he’s at home with us.  And(…)

A Day In The Life with Megan Dill

Since becoming a stay-at-home-mom when my 3-month-old was born this past summer, I’ve been reveling in spending quality time with both of my boys.  It was a bit too cold to play outside this day, so we had plenty of fun indoors.  A trip to the local library, time in our “school room”, yummy snacks, and lounging by the Christmas tree comprised our slow-paced day.  I can get used to this!

A Day In The Life with Jen Foster

I’ve frequently done “day in the life” blog posts, but really this would be the first one that I actually did honestly just to document a plain old weekday, without any fancy setups, locations or flashy “real life” moments that rarely just happen on their own. This is just my life, unscripted.

The day starts in our house like most, animals screaming for food, coffee brewing (thank God for the hubby), the little one sneaking(…)

A Day In The Life with Lissa Chandler

I have wanted to write a Day in the Life post for, like, at least two years. And by two years, I mean that in early October of 2011, I woke up and said “I’m going to take photographs of my day!” but only made it until about ten in the morning.

And that may be stretching it a bit – it’s possible I only lasted until nine.

So! Over the years, when I thought about(…)

A Day In The Life with Jo Clark
This is my second attempt at a “Day in the Life” collection so I decided to do a weekend day this time so hubby was around. When we are home on a weekend (which rarely happens), we love to get out and about as much as possible and soak up every minute together as a family. Each morning starts with a little visitor well before I am ready to wake up.

Immediately followed by the(…)
