At Home with the Trenery's

When people ask me what a story session is, I sometimes feel like I jumble a bunch of words together & it doesn't always come out so clear. After the sessions, I feel like a little kid, giddy with excitement, as I scroll through images. They're full of so many different emotions, dynamics & adventures. The images make me smile, they make me laugh, they make me so content, all because these people shared a glimpse of their real life with me. Allowing me to preserve this moment in time is pretty dang special. The Trenery's are our very awesome neighbors (& possibly the inspiration for our chicken & duck flock). This year their oldest went into middle school & their youngest started kindergarten. Big milestones. Before these new adventures began, we spent a few hours together one Saturday evening.

At Home with Lisa & Morgan...

It's been almost two weeks since my Soul Shooting workshop. If you haven't checked out that post, you should. Part of the day included hanging with this family- so full of life, laughter, beauty & fun. During this time, we heard words of advice & encouragement from two amazing storytellers (Molly & Sarah); we had the chance to ask these storytellers questions & we had the opportunity to photograph things as we saw them. It was special; it was exciting; it felt like the perfect fit- documenting real life with the camera just feels so complete.
