My Story Telling Sessions
Do you ever dread your yearly family photo session? ALL of you are stressed out looking (and shopping! ugh!) for clothes that match, fixing hair that that looks like it's 2 months past a fresh cut, and then threatening happy attitudes or else? ;)
Yeah. Me too. ;)
A Story Telling Session involves none of these things, well happy attitudes are always a plus. ;) And who doesn't love a fresh hair cut, but you get what I'm saying. ;) These sessions take so much pressure off and you can just relax, knowing I'm going to take care of the candid photos and you don't need to worry about clothing colors for the posed family photo (I do take a posed photo at the end of all my story telling sessions).
Prior to your session, we chat about activities to do as a family (I help you decide this based on your family's interests and things you do together consistently), if you would like to go somewhere together (hiking, a day at the coast, pumpkin patch, choosing your Xmas tree, etc). The activity part is only part of your session so I can document your every day moments that seem mundane, but are actually beautiful and worth capturing.
When I arrive at your home, I try to make the littler kids feel comfortable with me by asking them about their toys and what they like, and I just begin photographing your family. :)
I know it seems odd to have someone in your house and in your space, but I promise, if this sessions feels like YOU, then this won't be weird. :)
The Cox Family
This sweet family invited me in to their home to tell their story as they welcome their second baby in to their family. Their new baby was just a few days old and spending the day with happy, exhausted parents and an adjusting toddler who also loved his new little brother, was a treasure.
I also loved being there when they gave Moses his first bath.
