Breastfeeding Mini sessions

Nursing sessions are near and dear to my heart, especially now that I am a nursing mama myself.

If you are passionate about breastfeeding your little one, and want photographs that preserve these special memories, then these sessions are for you!

Breastfeeding mini sessions $150+tax

Includes: a 30 minute in-home session, and 5 digital images with a print release.

The whole gallery of images can be bought after your session for $100+tax.

These sessions focus on mama and baby, but other immediate family members are welcome to be in photos too.

Backyard Summer Session

Backyard chalk- summer sessionA classic Florida summer, playing in the backyard with your siblings. Having fun with chalk, eating popsicles, and playing on a slip-n-slide! These times spent together with your family are where treasured memories are made.

A documentary photo session is for you as a parent, yes, but they are also for your kids. These sessions give your children photographs to look back on that show what their childhood was really like. There is nothing wrong with getting dressed up and taking a pretty portrait, but those photographs don’t show your day to day, real, honest life. They don’t show how your kids use to act, or the silly things they use to do, like making “clay” out of chalk, or coloring their doll with so much chalk that the water they were sitting in turned purple. These photographs give them a true glimpse into what their lives use to look like. They bring up precious memories, and they bring up good conversation reminiscing on the past.

Don’t wait until your lives are more put together, or you move into a bigger house. No, your family is not too crazy, or too boring.  I believe every person is inherently interesting, and valuable, and has a story to tell.  Would you give me the honor of telling your family’s story through a documentary photo session?  We all know that kids grow up fast, so don’t wait, book your summer session today by contacting me Here

A day with the Hartley's

A few weeks ago I spent the day with the Hartley’s. They had their fourth baby in July. Their kids are so sweet. They spent the morning playing tennis. Then they spent some time at home, and most of the day at grandma, and grandpas house. Watching Delia, the oldest, hold the new little baby Madsen, was so sweet. She is such a natural with him. She will make a great mom some day.  I love the different interactions between family members. Having extended family adds a whole other element which I love.

I love spending an entire day with a family. It is such an honor to be allowed in someones home, to get to photograph real honest moments in their lives!  Hartley's-10Shelby Truly Photography Documentary family photographyHartley's-11 day in the lifeDocumentary PhotographyKids tennis day in the life session Shelby Truly PhotographyKids tennisat homeHartley's-24Hartley's-25Hartley's-26Hartley's-27Hartley's-28Hartley's-31Hartley's-33Hartley's-36Hartley's-41Hartley's-43Hartley's-45Hartley's-48Hartley's-46Hartley's-49Hartley's-52Hartley's-50Hartley's-54Hartley's-51Hartley's-56Hartley's-60Hartley's-64Hartley's-68Hartley's-71

A Morning with the Mitchell's | Documentary Family Photography

In-home Documentary family sessions are my favorite. The more I do them, the more I love them! I love the real moments between loved ones. It is such an honor to be invited into a someones home, to get to capture their day.

Saturday morning I got to drive up to Central Florida to capture Lauren of Lauren Mitchell Photography and her wonderful family. You can check out her awesome work on her website here.

It was a day filled with making Christmas ornaments, a visit to a local farm, and eating lunch downtown.
