A Home Story Session is a photo documentary of the uniqueness of your family’s life. These are portrait sessions of a different kind. They are a candid, real life storytelling photography record of the beautiful mess of your every day life. In fifty years time, you can look back on these photographs and remember the very simple things that you did together as a family; having breakfast, going for a walk, or simply hanging out in the house. These are the memories that we carry around in our heads forever, but ones we rarely have in photographs.
These sessions are just what they sound like: a day peek into your family's life, captured just as you live it. I tag along with you and your family and capture moments, big and small, that make up your life. And because these sessions are unscripted, you can wear whatever you want and you don't even have to clean your house! You can go about your day as you normally would. The beauty of it all is that the pressure is off and the resulting images are true and real, making them all that much more amazing! There will be good moments, tender moments, hilarious moments and maybe even ugly moments, just like in normal life and it’s beautiful that way.
You may think your family is boring, or that there is nothing to photograph, but that is not so. Especially if you have children, you can count on them to provide lots of material for an entertaining session.
There is so much beauty in the mundane that we don’t notice. I will be there to record the special moments and connections between the members of your family that will be beautiful reminders for your family for generations.
Some families are concerned about the chaos of their homes. Inviting a photographer to record your life can be intimidating but for a Home Story Session, that is really not an issue. The photos will focus on the love and connections of family members, not on clutter or messes.
And if there is chaos, that is real life right now, and that is what you want to remember. There is nothing better than real life- beautiful, raw, messy real life.
