For the past 35 years I have used visual storytelling to capture classic timeless images that celebrate life's unscripted moments. I now turn my eye, mind and heart to documenting family relationships.

Why do documentary photos matter?

Time is fleeting. Children grow so fast. We wish we could press the pause button and bring back that moment in time. Our son is now 31 years old. We have filled boxes and frames with images of him growing up. We treasure these moments in time and know they are an important part of our family legacy.

What is a documentary "short story" session?

A "short story' session is unlike any family photo session that you may have experienced. No posing or directing. It is an unobtrusive documentary approach to narrative storytelling. Just be yourselves and the authentic moments will unfold naturally.

How does a documentary session work?

We begin with a consultation to determine what activities that are unique to your family. Depending on your children's ages, simple activities such as baking together, getting ready for the day, a bedtime routine, an outing to the park/playground or a visit to a zoo can be the basis of a "short story" session.

Next is the session itself. I will document those honest emotions of everyday candid life.

After the session I will edit and process the images and present them in a slideshow that you can share online with family and friends.

We then schedule a "print reveal" meeting where you can view collections of printed and matted images that are available as wall decor or grandparent gift prints. Softbound or hardbound 9 X 9 storybooks are also available to add to your collection.

The "short story" session includes:

• pre session consultation

• documentary photography

• online slideshow to share with family and friends

• post session meeting with reveal wall to view matted print collections and “short story” books
