The Fisher Family (and why you should consider a storytelling session)

Heather reached out to me this summer to plan a session in their first garden at their first home before moving to a new one, and I wanted her to share her experience with you. I can't even count the number of people who come to me saying "I would really love a story telling session, but our house is a mess/we are too busy/it's too hot/it's too cold/I don't know what we will do while you are here/I really want Christmas card photos and ones to frame." More on some of those in a blog post coming soon! And y'all, Heather almost changed her mind because of these kind of reasons. I wanted to share what Heather had to say about their session experience from her perspective as a client!

I cannot say enough good things about our story telling session with Allyn. Allyn is so warm, friendly, and easy to be around, and I will forever cherish the photos that she took at our home. My family planted our first garden this year and I wanted Allyn to take pictures of us spending time at this place where we had made so many memories. While scheduling our session with Allyn, though, I almost changed it to a more traditional photo session rather than her “story telling” session. I worried that our garden wasn’t flourishing enough and that my home wasn’t a perfect backdrop. A session with more staged pictures in a flower field sounded beautiful, easier, and very tempting to me. But I asked myself something I usually ask myself when making decisions - what will I wish I had done when I’m 90 years old? Pictures in a flower field are beautiful and I would certainly love to have them. But when I’m 90? I will be so happy that I chose to have the pictures Allyn took in our first garden and around our first home. I don’t care about the weeds or cracked driveway, because the realness that Allyn was able to capture during our story telling session is what I want to remember.

If you’re on the fence about what kind of session to schedule, I highly recommend Allyn’s story telling sessions. Choose something your family enjoys doing that you don’t want to forget and let her beautifully capture those memories. You won’t regret it now or when you’re 90.

If you'd like to book a story telling session, but you are on the fence, let's talk about it. I have lots of ideas for things that you can "do" while I'm there if you want them, and I can definitely talk you through a lot of the other reasons you might be hesitating. These sessions mean the world to my clients, and they capture the season you are in a little differently than a traditional session might. Plus, you will still get those Christmas card photos ;)
