Storytelling Sessions take place in a location that is meaningful to you.  I love shooting families in and around their home but we can also take the session to your favorite park, beach, ice cream shop, or anywhere else your family loves to spend time.  I highly recommend that families decide on an activity they will do together prior to their session.  The activities don’t need to be very involved.  They could include reading books together, painting on the easel, making breakfast, raking leaves, building a snowman, jumping on the trampoline - basically any activity that brings you together as a family will be perfect for this type of session.  Just having a plan allows us to jump right into the fun.  And it gets everyone pumped for family time!

We will talk prior to your session so I can learn more about your family and what you like to do together. Once you schedule your session, your job is done.  During the session you can just enjoy your family, and I’ll photograph what life looks like for you all at this moment in time.  It is super easy because all you have to do is be yourself!
