A few years ago I co-founded annual retreat in New Orleans for seasoned family photographers. The Family Narrative was an idea born out of wanting to inspire and create community with other family photographers. Our goal is to offer established photographers a place to commune with their peers, push through burnout, learn from each other and leave feeling inspired and invigorated. The 3-day retreat is filled with curated presentations, panel discussions, small-group conversations, portfolio reviews, and live shoots that script an entirely new narrative on what it means to be a family photographer in the modern era.
