what is a storyteller session?

storyteller sessions aim to capture your family, in all of your phases, at this moments in time. we will play, and laugh, and i will prompt and guide you into photographic moments that you'll treasure forever. i encourage you to bring your children's favorite things
(a favorite lovey, a favorite book, a family heirloom) and accessories. maybe your family dog needs to join in on the fun. whatever makes your family unique is what you're going to want to remember, and that's what i want to document for you.

Storyteller Session 

how long is a storyteller session?
one hour is the perfect amount of time for a relaxed family session, where no one feels rushed, and we can explore our surroundings. 

where should we go?
once you've booked your date, I can send you a list of locations if you have no idea what setting you would like your family photos in. if your location is further than 15 miles outside of the woodlands, a travel fee may apply, but it might just be worth it! galveston, a state park, your family property, so many beautiful backdrops for family photography outside of the woodlands. 

what should we wear?
I will send over a style guide to help you with this. but the number one rule is: ....coordinate, don't match! you want to stick with at least 50% neautral colors. What you see and hopefully love about relics of rainbows photo, is that most of my families stick to neutral colors, with some pops of color, in pastel tones.   

candid or posed?
while i'm aware that you are going to want at the very least, one photo (i call it the christmas card photo) where everyone is looking at the camera, i generally deliver about 25% of your gallery with these photos so you have a few to choose from. the rest of the images are designed to tell your story. interacting with one another, and showing each other love is something i think you're going to want to have more so in the future. these images are the relics of your legacy.
