The Story

Petites are a great way to do a quick session, focusing on one particular thing. They're quick, easy and cost effective. They're really great as "filler" sessions for those of you who only do a big session once every other year.

But sometimes, one shot doesn't do it. Sometimes...sometimes you need the whole story.

If I showed you this image all by'd say ok - sweet kid - sweet expression...

but if I show you THIS you get the whole picture
(which would be "ha ha MOM...I'm not wearing that hat!!")

By the way, I get lots of calls asking what, exactly, is a storyboard? Voila. A storyboard consists of multiple images printed onto one large print which tell a story.

Now that doesn't mean that every image should fit into a storyboard or that you couldn't pull one of the images off the storyboards above and use them as a print all by themselves. Of course you could. It doesn't mean that petites aren't a great option either. It just means that sometimes, you need a full boutique session to tell a story. 'Cause sometimes it's all about the story. And sometimes it's all about the expression.
