What does a story session feel like to look at 10 years later?

"It has been a tradition for our family to go to the Great Minnesota Get-together since my daughter was 5 days old. So it only felt natural to have our session there.

 

What I didn't know was how 10 years later, this session would become priceless.

 

Having a documentary [story] session is different from a family portrait session in that it was so unique to our family experience. It felt truly authentic.

 

It tells our story without the pressure of performing for a camera. When we relax and let go, real magic happens.

 

Natalie is a true artist and this gift to us is irreplaceable."

How do I know which one is right for me?

Both types of sessions are great for lifestyle stuff (families, etc) and creative business folks.

 

If you "only need a couple new photos" then minis are the way to go. They are offered a few times of year, and will be mostly suggested posing, headshots, and quick sessions in a fun setting I announce (no at-home minis) somewhere in Minneapolis.

 

Get on the waitlist here and be the first to find out when the next round is.

 

Story sessions are all about the whole visual narrative. Stories capture your essence. They are movement, tiny details, and emotion all put together into an experience for the viewer.

 

Maybe you're a musician wanting to document time in the studio cutting a record, a family making waffles for breakfast, or an energy worker embodying different archetypes in the wilderness...these are stories that take a little more time and intention to create.

 

Whether it's a potential client today or YOU in twenty years, story sessions are powerful visual journeys. There is no "right" session type, it just depends on what you plan on doing with the final images.

 

Most story sessions come with a beautiful book to tie everything together, too. More time taking photos, less time figuring out what to do with them later.
