Over the next few weeks I'm going to discuss the what, how, ins, outs, and details of Storytelling photography as told by me.
I know several people have never even heard of storytelling so let's start this week off with the what.
What exactly is storytelling photography?
Let's blow the dust off the dictionary and define some key words.
Story - an account of events, past or present, in someones life
Telling - to give an account or narrative of; narrate; relate
Storytelling - the telling or writing of stories.
Storytelling photography is a form of art that documents special, important, and/or ordinary events in life.
It tells your story. Pausing a moment in time. Moments you can cherish for years.
It is authentic, honest, real, raw, genuine, connective, emotive, detailed, intimate.
When you see it, you feel it.
It ignites something inside you.
Storytelling photography is NOT forced, manipulated, staged, posed, stiff.
It isn't your average in the box photography session.
It's the complete opposite.
It's your life in all it's glory. The messy, the perfect, the small, the large, and everything in between.
Storytelling photography can document a wide, vast variety of moments in your life.
The possibilities are endless.
From Births, family outings, date night, cooking with grandmas, holiday traditions, hunting trips and so much more. It's these moments, these spots in time that I am passionate about capturing. It's these stories, your stories, captured, shown in digital art form. That is storytelling photography.
The idea of having all these special moments, all the details, captured to look back on. To show my kids. To show my grandkids. It makes me heart incredibly happy. To be able to offer that to other people in the world is true Joy.
Your story, your life, captured for years.

"You shed abroad a plentiful rain, O God; You confirmed Your inheritance when it was parched." - Psalm 68:9
Texas summer rain is an amazing thing! It is very rare. This past month we have seen a few of these rare days and it has been awesome! Obviously the kids wanted to run and jump and play. I couldn't say no and I am glad I didn't. They had a blast and it was so worth the messy bath afterwards : )
