I am giving away one of my coveted Storyteller Sessions!!!!
(a $1,199 value!)
Why? Because I believe in empowering people to celebrate all the little stories of their lives. I love hearing stories, connecting with people, and am super-excited when I get to help document pieces of people's stories, too. Let's share the love!
WHAT the heck IS a "Storyteller Session," anyway?
A Storyteller Session is a truly unique day-in-the-life photography experience. I step into your world and capture it from the inside... like wedding-day photos for the life that happens AFTER the wedding. We can go on a special adventure, capture the everyday beauty of your home life, or a little bit of both. The Storyteller Session includes up to 6 hours together at multiple locations, 200+ final high-resolution digital images and a 10x10 fine art album as a keepsake souvenir.
Yeah, it's all kinds of cool.
Check out this quick video for an example of a Storyteller Session last year in Portland.
This fabulous family (and repeat clients of mine) decided to fly up from Orange County, CA to Portland, OR for a few days, to celebrate their 10 year anniversary and their youngest daughter's first birthday! We shopped a farmer's market, had a picnic in Cathedral Park, and wandered around downtown together. It was all kinds of magical, and definitely memorable.
Look like FUN? Let's get to the GIVEAWAY, shall we???

And because I'd NEVER ask you to do anything I wouldn't do myself, here is a love story of my own...
Third time's a charm? I am currently in the BEST, easiest & most healthy relationship I've ever had. We've been together almost 2 years already, and something tells me that this is for LIFE. But it took us 3 times for us to get to this place. We'd dated each other before... not once, but TWICE. It was just never the right time in our lives, and even though there was SOMETHING there, we just didn't "fit" each others' needs at the time. But we stayed friends. He moved up to Oregon, and I was still in California. Life happened. I got married. I got divorced. And I fell back in love... with MYSELF. And then Erik came back into my life. Chatting from afar turned into a visit up to Oregon. And I fell in love for a second time... with a PLACE. I made the bold move up to Bend, Oregon. And Erik was by my side to help. There were definitely rekindled sparks, but more important than that, there was deep honesty, trust, a sense of support, and friendship. And as you can imagine, it was all too easy to FALL IN LOVE with HIM. And now, I almost can't imagine my life without him. This is a partnership like I've never known. And a support for my individual SELF, as well. And now? After all this time & all of life's changes, we simply FIT each other so well, it's such a beautiful thing. And sometimes I have to pinch myself as a reminder that it's real.
