In-home Family Session | Los Angeles Storytelling Photography
What is storytelling photography? There's difference between photography and visual storytelling. Often times, you might think of family photography as a session filled with "posed" photos that lasts about 30-45mins. But there are families who also want a photographer to capture their LIFE as they see and live it everyday. It could be their children's milestones or just the interactions between the parents and their kids or a day at the beach etc. Sometimes they are fully dressed up or other times they decide to just stay in their "home" outfits. Most of my in-home family sessions ARE in the form a visual storytelling. I spend a minimum of 2 hours (sometimes a whole day, depending on how the family books me) and I get to know the family and tell their story through photographs. During this family storytelling (pictured below), the parents wanted me to capture when the daughter was interacting with the mom and dad and what her favorite things were at that time. So putting makeup on mommy, having teatime and blowing bubbles were some her favorite things to do at age 2!
I don't only take candid photos during the sessions, I also make sure to take some "posed" family photos as well for the family to have. If you are interested in Family Storytelling, feel free to contact me!!
