Ideas for Your Family Storytelling Session

IMG_4749

I photographed a family last night who played in the yard and made S’Mores. I’ve known them for a few years, so they just get me. Ya know? They know where my heart lies when it comes to photography, and they book me because of the authentic moments I capture. But for clients who don’t know me, seeing the words storytelling, unposed, and documentary might leave you with a lot to question.

What do we do?!

After some time talking with my clients last night, I’ve decided that it may be beneficial to share some documentary session ideas. I’d love to hear some of yours too!

1.Make a Meal

Kids love to help in the kitchen. Why not document them helping make their favorite meal?

 

 2.Play!

It’s what they do best.
