Towards the end of 2015 I enrolled in a photography workshop I had been eyeing off for some time. The Stories We Tell is a workshop run by the very talented Colie James Photography. I have been guilty of losing much time admiring her work, and I am sure if you look up her website you’ll find yourself doing the same. Colie has a real knack for documenting the everyday of families. There are so many magical moments in our daily routines yet we often don’t think to capture them. So I have spent the past five weeks learning just how to tell the stories of families and their everyday lives and it is hands down the best workshop I have ever taken.

Below are some of my favourite images from one of our assignments in the workshop. It’s ‘A Day In The Life’ and I think I was pretty lucky to be in one of the most amazing places in the world to capture this story…

By the way, the chances of finding a mug engraved with A Day In The Life (as seen in this opening image) while on a "Day In The Life" shoot are pretty slim I'd say... I was so excited when I spotted this. Thanks to pro snowboarder Tadashi Fuse for featuring this in his exhibition in the Mt Dock Gondola Cafe at Nozawa Onsen, you made my day!
