your life is amazing...
document it!

your family story

It seems like one day you have a baby and the next you're dropping him off at college. I know this from personal experience!

This time in your life is amazing. And it's true what they say...it really does fly by. Everyday moments quickly become memories, and we often forget the details as life rushes on.

Your family photography session is a time to relax and enjoy the present, while I document the love and the quiet, the crazy, the funny. So you can hold on to the kind of memories you'll want to keep for a lifetime and share with future generations.


And it's not just for your future selves and children, it's for right now.
Real life stories in print nurture self-esteem and help your children see themselves, as they are, and how they belong. 


a fun demonstration of this...and I promise the "me" was completely spontaneous...hover & turn up the audio for maximum cuteness 

Childhood goes fast!

"Me?!"

your life is amazing...
document it! 

Your family story

Most families enjoy photography in their homes or a place that feels like home, like your neighborhood park. Outdoorsy?  So am I. I'd love to go on an outdoor adventure with your family. 

We can reserve a few minutes for a playfully posed, gently directed, look-in-the-camera type family portrait, But for the most part, I'll take an unscripted, unposed documentary approach.

This means you won't have to stress about posing, dressing up, or corralling the kids. You can be yourselves, do what you would naturally do, and enjoy the family time you want to remember.





Relax & Enjoy

Every photography experience is organic and unique to your family.

Play with the dog.
             

Stand on your head.

Play tag.
               

 Or just chill in the backyard.

Bake cookies.

Go for a walk.   

Build a couch fort.

Run through the sprinkler

What's a session like?

Choose your own adventure...

Jump on the bed

If you're looking for a completely posed session where every hair is in place and everyone is sitting "just so", then storytelling photography is probably not for you.

Natural storytelling is for you if you find meaning, beauty and humor in your everyday life. In the joyful moments, the calm, and the chaos. In the real expressions and emotions that show your family's love for one another.



Let's get real.

and Dads, and Grandmas & Grandpas...
It's important that you get in the photo too!

Photographing your everyday life captures the powerful but often invisible things you do every day to help your child grow and thrive.


Moms, I see you.

eal life storytelling photography
      focuses on real people and real relationships,
          so you can remember how this time in your life feels.

to ensure we have a great selection of photos at the end of our session. She is patient, easy going and very flexible. She is great with toddlers and pets, too.

We have her photos in nearly every room of our house. We plan to have her document our family each year so we can continue to the tradition of having great family memories preserved.

I would highly recommend Diana to anyone who is looking for a talented photographer. She is wonderful.

This truly was a day the boys and I have over and over, talking, laughing, no special prep with make-up or wardrobe, or taking away the way I look -- the many ways I look. LOVE the pics! THANK YOU!

When I look at these I have true memories of our time together, not just a photo session. Time with those you love is precious and I'm so grateful you captured real moments for us to remember.

The first step is to schedule a 20 minute call. I've found that this is the best way to explain the details and answer your questions. We'll get to know one another, or if you are a returning family we'll reconnect. No obligation. If we are a good fit, we'll book your session on the call.

All you need to book your session is your session fee and a quick online agreement. The fee ($250-300) covers the creation and editing of your images. It does not include any digital or printed artwork.





If you've ever shopped for art or photography, you know we all work a little differently.
I like to keep it simple and flexible, with a session fee + customizable collections.

Let's chat

2-3 weeks after your session, I'll send you a link to a preview slideshow. Then you can access your images by purchasing a collection.

Each collection includes some digital artwork and a print credit, giving you the freedom to choose exactly what you'd like. Collections start at $450, depending on the type of session. I've carefully curated a selection of archival quality artwork, so that you and your family can enjoy your photographs for generations.

And, once you've worked with me, you'll be invited to join the Family Legacy Club, with perks, discounts and a monthly payment plan, so you can document your family as you grow and change throughout the year.

Enjoy your family time and have a great session!

Family Story sessions are typically around two hours (100+ images), Short Stories (great for seniors, maternity, newborn, mom & me...) are 45 minutes (20-30 images), and both take place in your home or a nearby outdoor location. But let me know if you want to go further.

While the Short Story focuses on a single person or quick activity. Family Story sessions are longer and flexible so that we can explore those natural stories unique to your family. A generous amount of time for unposed documentary style, plus a tiny bit of optional gently directed photography, means zero pressure: you can all relax and be yourselves.
