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.
