DON'T LET THEM PASS YOU BY
The little moments. The realest ones. The most amazing ones. They happen in the in between. They are the best. They are authentic. And I'm in love with them. And that's why documenting the everyday through photographs makes my heart smile. Let's tell your story. Right here. Right now. All the in between beautiful moments.
BECAUSE YOU WERE THERE TOO, MOMMA.
YOUR STORY IS BEAUTIFUL. AND IT'S WORTH BEING TOLD.
What if I told you that you could have a photo shoot without tears?
Without stress? And without bribing your kids (or husband)? That a photo shoot can actually be FUN and capture your true personalities and connections?
I have a passion, deep in my soul, for documenting real life. Authentic storytelling photography helps tell your story in an honest, memorable, and meaningful way.
Anything from dance parties to tickle wars. Fort building to movie night. Or even making a Target run. After dinner bike rides or Saturday mornings at the park. Is Friday night movie night? Do you make breakfast together every Saturday morning? Is your toddler obsessed with dance parties to Taylor Swift?
Momma... I know you have photos of these moments. I know you do. But you're not in them. Are you? Now close your eyes and think about the best "normal" day you've had with your family.
What would it mean to you if you had photographs of that FOREVER...and you're in them? THAT'S why I do this. You, momma, YOU deserve to be in these photographs too. Invite me to your next game night or trip to the local library. I want to share your story, with you.
Document the Days
Storytelling sessions are all about capturing your real, beautiful, messy, amazing every day life. They take place in your home or favorite spot around town. You be you and I’ll be there to document it. From baking cookies to reading before nap time or pizza night to visiting the local library. I’ll be with you for about two hours. You’ll be amazed all the wonderful, sweet moments I will document from our time together.
Storytelling sessions are perfect for families, couples, newborns, and high school seniors.
You pick from a Family Film, Family Photos, or both Film + Photos.
Mast families budget between $1200 and $1800 on their custom session, prints, and film.
For detailed session and pricing information and current session availibility, fill out this form and I'll be in touch soon!
WHAT TO EXPECT
I know what you're thinking...
You're thinking, "how on earth are we supposed to have an NON-POSED photo session?"
You'd be surprised just how easy that actually is. In fact. It's easier than having a posed-smile-at-the-camera session. You don't have to worry about bribing your kids, you don't have to buy fancy, new outfits, and you don't have to worry about your 3 year old "behaving" in front of the camera. The documentary-style approach to your photos makes for a stress-free, natural, relaxed, and fun photo experience!
Once you inquire to book, I'll send you over a short survey. It's like 7 questions, and there are no wrong answers, so don't sweat it. It will help me get to know you and your family AND get your wheels turning (probably without you even noticing) on what types of things you want photographed. Once I review the answers, we can set up a call, meet for coffee, or shoot some emails and develop a plan of activities for the shoot.
When I get there, I'll hang out with your family for a little bit. Get to know any kiddos I'll be photographing. Get them comfortable with me and my camera. Then we'll go from there. After about 10 minutes, you'll totally forget I'm even there!
These photographs mean EVERYTHING to our family!!! We love that we finally jumped in and made the expense of professional family pics. I loved that they weren't in a studio and this was at home with everything that is personal to us. It made the shots that much more meaningful!
I LOVE THESE!!! Thank you so much for capturing such beautiful moments of my family. The nursing ones are especially precious to me....I hardly have any photos of myself with my kids because I don't feel like I look good in photos, but you made me look great. I look good in these photos! I absolutely love nursing my babies and spend so much time doing it, but I don't have pictures of it. Thank you so much.
Call Jennifer Stamps, email her, send her smoke signals. She is amazingly talented and has such a generous and kind spirit. She makes you feel so at ease in front of the camera. Thank you so much Jen!
Jen is upbeat and very friendly. We became comfortable with her quickly and that made for better photographs! The photos are so special. They show our family doing what we do when not in front of the camera - play time, story time, family time.
