SNEAK PEEK: Our Story Session for the Butler Family

The Butler Family won my Our Story session back in September. I met and photographed them in October and, well, it’s been a busy Fall. October turned into November turned into December and I’m just now getting to edit their session and listen to the 90 minutes of audio from our family meeting.

Pulling together Our Story sessions takes a lot of time. There’s the recorded family meeting and 3-hour session itself, transcribing the meeting and culling and editing the photos, then bringing all of that together into a Storybook for the family that captures who they are at this moment in time.  It’s pretty much everything I love to do in one, grand project but the reality is that you have to immerse yourself in it for days on end to really get to the core of it all. And that time hasn’t been there. But now, I’m thankful it is.

Diving into Lightroom to cull the photos, I was so overtaken with love and emotion for this family that I decided to sneak-peek some of the photos before the Holidays. This is a family that is so brimming over with love and joy and laughter, despite being presented with a series of life’s greatest challenges: cancer, autism, PTSD and food allergies. A family with 3 kids, 5 cats, a fantastic love story and a faith that gives them grace and gratitude that is beyond admirable.

They fully embraced my presence and the goal of capturing their family “as is” and  I can’t wait to share their whole story soon.
