Recent work from Real Photography
Hi there! I wanted to give you an idea of what a full storytelling session looks like when you book with me, so I'm sharing a recent fall family photoshoot. We caught the tail end of an autumn FULL of beautiful colors, and got to make a few new memories in the process! ❤
With up to 2 hours of shoot time, full storytelling sessions allow enough time for everyone to relax and get comfortable in front of the camera - super helpful with young children!! They allow enough time to tell a story utilizing both documentary images (a perspective on your life that you'll miss decades down the road) and lifestyle images (more classically styled photos with gentle guidance from me). What you won't get with me is dozens of photos that all look the same. But you WILL receive a collection of unique, handcrafted images with attention to detail, angle and emotion; images that tell an authentic story of YOU, with the environments and activities of your choosing.
If you are looking for a fun and meaningful experience with a mixture of images capturing both the mundane (those fleeting little moments that make you, you) as well as "something for the wall", please contact me today!!
I'm so excited to be announcing holiday mini sessions THIS coming Saturday, October 19th! Mini sessions are perfect for updating your annual family photo, getting to know a new photographer, or even capturing great images to use as gifts (in this case, in time for using for your holiday cards, too!). Don't forget to sign up for my email newsletter below to get first dibs on all future mini sessions!
These mini sessions will be held in a beautiful location in the Snoqualmie River Valley, which is Indigenous Snoqualmie territory.
These mini-sessions were SO FUN!! Please enjoy a few highlights below. It was so great getting to meet so many families and couples!
This newborn photoshoot was a dream...so many sweet moments capturing the tender new beginnings of a brand new family, and, of course, many adorable looks and gurgles from sweet Baby Kai. What a beautiful thing, I think, for a baby to be surrounded by so much love! Having worked as a birth and postpartum doula for years, I have always loved working with new families; it is an honor to be invited into such a space, and to provide a service that can help to celebrate and honor such an important time in a family's life. A Full Storytelling Session is a great way to get the most out of your newborn photoshoot; it allows time to capture many natural and candid moments, giving everyone a chance to tend to their needs and getting a true glimpse into "a day in the life" for you and your newborn. Don't pass up the opportunity to invest in newborn photography now while your littles are still little, as features change quickly!
...and yes, if you have doggos or other family pets, I will definitely include them in your newborn photoshoot as well! ❤
Documenting personal events is truly a joy: I love getting to meet and be around so many different people, but I especially love being able to be a fly-on-the-wall, and capture moments as they happen. It's an honor to be invited into people's lives for these special celebrations - capturing this little girl's outdoor first birthday party was no exception. I am thankful to be doing this work, and most especially if it helps other people be more in-the-moment during their own events, interacting more face-to-face instead of needing to also document everything. Memories are precious; so is time well spent in good company!
This springtime family photography session was such a joy!! I truly love the unique documentary approach to my style, allowing for the life of the people I'm photographing to unfold before me without too much fuss. I'm thankful to be able to work with families in creating moments and photographs they can cherish for years to come, and thankful to live and work in this beautiful Pacific Northwest, too (indigenous Coast Salish land).
