(3-4 Hour Documentary Session)

Together, we will create a visual diary for your family that is full of love.

My Storytelling sessions are exactly like my Day In the Life sessions, only shorter.  The approach is exactly the same.  You will find that it is relaxed, not rushed.  You will be surprised at how many treasured moments can happen in a 3-4 hour period, even if you never leave the house!  You simply decide which part of the day you would like covered.  That’s all the planning that is required.  



If you are reading this, then you are one step closer to having your Storytelling session!  I cover families in Calgary, mainly, but can travel to surrounding areas as well.  Storytelling sessions are ALL-INCLUSIVE: i.e. they include the FULL SET of artist-selected high resolution digital files (50+) with unlimited personal printing license, a beautiful slideshow set to musicplus an archival Heirloom album that will stand the test of time. 


When you make the decision to book your Storytelling session in, you can either click the ‘contact me’ link at the bottom of the page, or give me a call at 403.464.6333.  My name’s Alison, by the way.  We’ll then have a discussion about your awesome family & some of your unique quirks and dynamics, plus I’ll send you a quick questionnaire that helps me know you even better.


Like I mentioned, my sessions are pretty casual and relaxed.  Nothing is forced or posed.  Before these sessions, most people have concerns about how to ‘act natural’, but you will find that this quickly becomes a non-issue.  The best photographs are made when people are able to relax – nothing gets you there faster than having to just deal with your kids and forget that there’s even a camera there.  You will be surprised at how much we can cover with just 3-4 hours.


We may part ways after your session, but the fun is just beginning.  I treat your family’s photographs like my own.  I take the time to carefully select and edit the photographs that will best tell the story of your family.   About 4-6 weeks later, we will meet for your Reveal & Order session, where you will see your slideshow and all of the images for the first time.  We will confirm the details of your included album and you will have a chance to add Wall Art, desk prints, or gift albums to your order.


If you are ready to capture pure & authentic family life, you’ve come to the right place.  My Storytelling sessions are 3-4 hours (choose a morning/evening/somewhere in-between).  This ALL-INCLUSIVE PACKAGE is $2500 +gst.   Secure your date with a $500 deposit.  Then $1000 is due one week prior to our session, and the remaining balance of $1000 can be paid at the Reveal & Order Session.

"This has really made me contemplate my life and the moments that make it up... and just being part of this process has really brought me to a higher level of awareness ."
