Family Storytelling Sessions

Families | Kids | Couples | Maternity | Graduating Seniors


 
To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event.
— Henri Cartier-Bresson
 

Family Photography Matters

I believe wholeheartedly in the importance of family photography and the lasting impact and influence an image displayed in our homes or shared over and over with our children (and their children) can have on our lives. 

I strive to capture beautiful moments of meaningful connection photographed in natural light.  I love to help you preserve and pass on authentic expressions of your life, love and folly through a visual story told about your family that you can admire and cherish for years to come.

Session Fee and Collections

A session fee of $250 is charged at the time of scheduling.  This fee covers your pre-shoot consultation, your photo shoot and your post-shoot viewing and ordering session. This does not include any images or products. These are purchased separately after your shoot at the viewing and ordering appointment.

I offer three Chapter Collections that range in price from $990 to $2000 as well as various matted print options. All collections come standard with 14 museum-grade matted prints hand bound into a beautiful Matted Folio Album and their corresponding, full resolution digital file. Choose either “The Characters,”The Plot” or “The Resolution.

The Experience

Once your session date is confirmed, we will connect briefly over the phone to discuss the details and location of your session. We'll talk about some of the activities your family loves doing together and any specific parts of your family's story you hope to capture.  Ideally, your session will take place at a location that is important to you, whether that is your home, your neighborhood, a park, a lake or a favorite urban spot . I have a handful of locations I know and love, and will be happy to help you choose a natural backdrop that will highlight your vision if you do not have somewhere specific in mind.   During the session, my goal is to have fun and allow your family the space and time to simply be yourselves while I capture beautiful moments of meaningful connection and the details and emotion that help create your story. 

Viewing + Ordering Images

1-2 weeks following your photo shoot, we'll meet at your home or at a coffee shop for your viewing & ordering session. You’ll have the opportunity to view your edited images, select your collection, customize your beautiful wall art or album and purchase additional prints or digital images.  You'll end the viewing session feeling confident about your selection of images, knowing where and how to display your art and you will have gained a few more hours of your life back to enjoy with your family instead of on Pinterest trying to figure out what to do with your hard drive full of images. 


Belen is by far the greatest photographer I have ever used, she has a way of capturing the TRUE souls of each person in her photo’s. If you want a natural and true session, I HIGHLY recommend her, you will not be disappointed!!! Her rates are great too! Belen is also amazing with kids, my daughter does not like to smile for the camera and she got her laughing, smiling, AND being silly, it was wonderful!
