Special events? Senior pictures? Something else? Life events can be documentary sessions, as well.

Documentary Sessions can be customized to fit your needs.

Some of the sessions Stories of Joy Photography offers:

Documentary Birth Photography Session tells the story of your birth experience, whether it happens at the hospital, birthing center or at home. There is nothing graphic, and no posing involved, instead, I will be there to quietly capture the beauty of this very special time in a professional and sensitive way. Please contact me for more information.


One (or Two) Hour Documentary Sessions are a fun, no stress way to get your family's pictures taken. Beforehand, we choose an activity that you think your family would enjoy doing together, whether it is playing in the park or at the beach, going for a hike or out for ice cream. All the while I will be documenting your family time together. Towards the end, when everyone is feeling relaxed, and we've gotten to know each other a little bit, we will get those family portraits done in a snap.

Just beware - the families usually end up wet, dirty or tired, but with big grins on their faces.


Adoption Homecoming Sessions can be a One Hour Documentary Family Session, or a Day In The Life Session (or a Half Day In The Life Session) that takes place at the airport or at the courtroom. It can even be a Documentary Birth Session with open adoptions.

Newborn Documentary Sessions are a perfect way to preserve those precious early days of baby (or babies!). No posing necessary! No cleaning house, either - we will concentrate on the special connections between family members, and documenting what your life is right now. I will come to the hospital, or to your home, and spend a couple of hours with your family, documenting you and your little one.


Homeschooling Session: The Homeschool Documentary Session is very flexible. Each homeschool family is different, so each session will be different, as well. It can be as long or short as you want, and it can be at home, or at park, or in a car or at gymnastics - you know how it goes. I would love to capture this chaotic and sweet time in your life in a professional and unique way.


Disney Day in the Life Sessions are similar to Day in the Life Sessions at your home, except I tag along your family as you explore one of the Walt Disney World parks, documenting your day at one of the world's most magical places, so you will have moments and memories preserved of your fun day.
