Updated: Sep 3, 2022

Your customized Family Photo Experience with Beautiful Stories Photography

You want to book your Family photoshoot with Beautiful Stories Photography and you are wondering, what exactly happens before, during and after your photoshoot?

Well, a lot!

If you are anything like me, you do so much better when you know in advance what to expect!

And for this precise reason I am going to walk you through my process of providing you with a customized Boutique Photo Experience


  • When you decide you are ready to capture beautiful memories of your family, you reach out to me using this form:

  • We discuss your expectations from this photoshoot, I want to hear all about your vision and bring it to life, so in this segment we conceptualize what You want!

  • We then finalize a date that works for us.

  • I send you an invoice to pay and book your session.

  • Once your session is booked I send you an Information & Style Guide that helps you pick your outfits and provides more details about your session.


  • This is the most fun part of the process. We go and explore a beautiful park together.

  • I promise to never say the dreaded words "Say Cheese".

  • We play games, sing songs and sometimes dance and make beautiful memories.

  • We leave the photo session with lots of smiles and energy!


  • This is when you relax and I work!

  • I select the best ~20 pictures from the photoshoot and hand edit every single one of them. This is a very involved process and makes your pictures go from Beautiful to Awe inspiring!

  • I then add them to a beautiful gallery and share with you. You can share this gallery with your friends and family.

  • I truly believe in the power of prints, so I help you print your pictures from a professional gallery if you like.

I hope this clears a lot of fog around what a Family photo experience with Beautiful Stories Photography feels like.

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions and I will be happy to answer them.
