Photo session at the Leduc Library

Last December, I had the pleasure to document a family’s year-in-the-life monthly 1-hour photo session at the Leduc Library, just south of Edmonton.

We arrived as soon as the library opened to make sure that it wouldn’t be too busy during the photo session. Now, just to be clear, this was not a meticulously planned photo shoot. I had no idea what was going to happen during the session—I was simply there to document a family’s morning outing at the library.

In case you don’t know, I’m a documentary family photographer based in the greater Edmonton area and my approach is simple. You choose where you want to go or simply stay at home, and I document the genuine moments that unfold. No posing, no directing—just authentic family experiences.

Now, back to our family photo session at the Leduc Library…

Zoë and her family met with her sister Jade’s family for a fun little gathering. We headed straight to the enchanting kids section—a haven designed to ignite the minds of little ones. Mushroom stools, logs, a plush fireplace, puppets, toys, computers, and, naturally, an abundance of books awaited, ensuring there was something to captivate every child.

A story within the story

At some point during the session, one of the children got quite curious about a computer mouse.

Now, let me ask you. Have you ever had to write a story inspired by an image? I challenge you to do just that with a series of images I took of this little boy’s encounter with technology.

Seriously, I think this could be a creative monologue or short story. Look at the following images and imagine a scenario.

What could be racing through the little boy’s mind?

Let your creativity flow and share your story with me at mariepierre@mariepierrephotography.com or in a private message on Instagram or Facebook by April 30th. It doesn’t have to be a written story—you can also send me a voice recording or video. I’ll select a winner to receive a $10 Indigo gift card—just a little something to make the storytelling adventure even more exciting! Encourage your kids to participate too; if they win, they can treat themselves to a new book! (Contest open to anyone anywhere in Canada!)
