Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
— Aaron Siskind

Storytelling sessions

Let's be honest, what kid wants to sit still for more than 30 seconds and be told how to pose for family portraits, and what dad is super pumped when mom mentions a photo session? Storytelling sessions are fun and laid back! There’s nothing to worry about. Storytelling photography is about me telling the story of you. Capturing personality and connection is the goal. I’ll lightly direct you and your family if I need to, but usually we’re following the lead of the kids and going with the flow. Storytelling photography is great for families, fresh 48 and newborn, maternity, and couples.

DAY IN THE LIFE SESSIONS

Day in the Life sessions are THE BEST way to tell your family's story. I’ll come over, hangout and become part of your crew, even just for a couple of hours. We’ll chat, laugh (a lot!), share, and empathize. I know how hard being a parent can be and kid life isn’t always easy either. I’ll photograph the happy moments and the tough ones too. All I ask is for you to be you, exactly how you are. You’ll find the more time I spend with you, the more your family will forget I'm even there and that’s when the magic really happens!

I honor your trust and translate it into images that celebrate your most intimate, vulnerable moments. Years from now, I want you to look back on these memories and experience the same rush of feelings you felt the moment they happened.

HOW IT WORKS

  • You'll take a look around my website and decide that I'm the perfect photographer for you and your family.

  • Once you've established that, you'll contact me HERE to say hello and tell me what kind of session you're interested in and what days work best for you.

  • I'll give you a call and we'll get your session scheduled, then I'll email you the session agreement. You'll digitally sign it and pay your deposit.

  • I'll send you a fun questionnaire that'll help me get to know your family and get us both thinking about how to plan the perfect storytelling session.

  • After I look over your questionnaire, we'll email or chat on the phone about ideas and I can answer any questions you have.

  • Then, you just sit back and chill until I show up at your door and become part of your family for awhile!

  • After your session, I'll get to work editing your images ASAP and within 2-3 weeks after our session, we'll get together for an in-person viewing and ordering session and gush over our favorite images! We'll create a favorites list for your photo book if you decide to purchase one. You can order any prints or high resolution digital images that you like at this time. I'm not a salesy sales person so I'll just lay it all out there and you can tell me what you want. Easy peasy :)
