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."
what are they?
Let's get together for an hour or so. You do what you normally do: garden, make dinner, whatever, and I'll take photos.
Story Sessions are movement, tiny details, and emotion all put together into an experience for YOU, the viewer. Maybe you're a musician wanting to document time in the studio cutting a record, a family making waffles for breakfast, or a girl and her dog...these are stories that I promise you'll love to look back on.
Story Sessions also include a lovely book for you to keep. This is important because you can see the full story--each image connected to the next--the way it's intended to be experienced, as a story.
For families, people, pets...everyone.
What kind of images are delivered?
You'll get a digital download of your final images to keep.
These are high-resolution, editing for aesthetic, and ready to print.
Do I get the rights to these images?
The easy answer: we share the copyright.
Meaning, you may print or share your images most places,
as long as it's for personal use and not for a profit.
As the original creator and copyright owner,
I may use your images for my own purposes, like social media.
If needed, Jennings Photo can provide you with a print release.
How does proofing work?
I'll email you a link to your proofing gallery about a week after your shoot day.
In the proofing process you'll get to choose the images you want to keep.
These images are not edited yet.
Do I have to buy prints or are they included?
For most Story Session packages, you'll get either a soft cover or hard cover book telling the story of the session.
