My Story Sessions are documentary-style, which is an exciting new genre for a lot of families. (You might think of the words “candid” or “photojournalistic.”) Story Sessions take out the stress and allow for true personalities. This type of photography will appeal to you if you cringe when you see a portrait where everyone is wearing a white button down and khakis—even little Guisseppi; if your heart does a little fluttery thing when you see authentic small-moment photographs; if you think perfection is buuuuoring; if you think kids and dogs do funny things and have fantastic individual personalities that shouldn’t be stifled; if you crave images that tell a story and have soul. Yes! These can be done in your home or on location. Newborn, Mom + Me, Family, Pets, Gathering,… What’s your story?

Creating beautiful galleries for families just like yours, sounds like such a good time, so, let’s do it!
