Capture the magic, the love, and the story of everyday life.

A “Daytripper” believes that our lives our made up of millions of moments. We are just travelers, moving through these everyday moments (often faster than we would like!)– the sweet simplicity of daily breakfasts together, the predictable protests at bedtime, the quiet moments on the couch, endless days of play during the summer. It is within these fleeting moments that we can find the evidence of who we really are. These everyday moments that will be the threads of the tapestry of a family’s history. Memories are forged into our minds, but our truth is often clouded with the passing of time, so documenting your life (or the lives of your clients!) as it is right now is more important than ever! Join Casey McCauley in a Breakout that will help you capture the magic, the love, and the story of everyday life.

about your presenter

Casey McCauley is a silly, loud-talking, music making, coffee addict. She is a family documentary photographer living in central Illinois where she spends the majority of her time juggling and documenting life at home with her two boys, two giant furry ladies, and her comic-book making husband. In her spare time you may find her dancing in the kitchen, planning her next road trip, or riding the occasional roller coaster (arms up, of course!)..
