We are so glad you're here!
Hey friend! Hailey, Jodi & Nina here - your behind-the-scenes coaches, business strategists, photographers, mentors, friends.
The one thing we hear most from photographers is their desire to take images that embody more emotion. Real, raw and unscripted emotions...the ones that move you to tears, the emotions that inspire you to live deeper in each moment.
Wanting to take emotive images and perfecting the art of capturing them are two different stories. Storytelling is truly an art, and we're thrilled to finally be pulling back the curtain and sharing all of our tips and secrets with other aspiring storytellers.
A little over ten years ago, when my oldest was on the verge of turning one, I picked up a camera and decided to give this "photography gig" a go at it. I was shooting your typical smile at me portraits...and.I.hated.it. Money was tight for our growing family, so I kept working towards building my business, but I was left uninspired and unmotivated.
It wasn't until almost 6 years later, that I came across a photographer by the name of Joy Prouty. When I saw Joy's work for the first time, I was moved to tears. Joy's work embodies the most beautiful moments and connections shared between family members. I knew in that instant, that I wanted my work to have the same effect on those who viewed it. I wanted to do more than just prove that people existed. I wanted to show that they lived passionately and loved deeply.
My road to becoming a Storyteller wasn't as easy as I first had envisioned it. It's one thing to have a vision of capturing emotive imagery, but it's another thing to be able to articulate that vision to your clients and to help them fully relax and breathe in each moment, during their session.
It took me a little over two years of trial and error, lots of tears, and dedication to figuring this storytelling thing out...then the lightbulb came on. I figured out the secret to capturing emotive images...and I'm so excited to finally be pulling back the curtain and sharing all of my juicy secrets with y'all!
