about us_together .jpg



We are a mother daughter team with a passion for storytelling. With a background in documentary film, photography, and studio portraiture, we love combining our skills to create compelling imagery. We love connecting with our clients to capture a memory, document a story, or share a message.

We all begin and end our life celebrating with images that define it, both still and moving, and desire to capture everything in between. We are truly honored when a client trusts us to capture those moments, to tell their story, or to share their message. We believe in building that trust through connection, dedication, professional quality and personal service.

“Storia” is Italian for story. We invite you to explore the stories we have created. We invite you to envision what your story could be!

This is my beautiful and talented daughter, Francesca, better known as ‘Frankie’. Frankie received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from UMBC in 2014, where she studied Intermedia with a concentration in film. She was always drawn to storytelling and her unique eye for composition and movement draws the viewer into any story. She has a smile that makes you feel like a friend and a heart that allows her to create a film with truth and passion!


This is my mother, Rena. I grew up watching her document our lives with photographs and video, and I caught her passion when she placed a camera in my hand. Rena graduated from Notre Dame of Maryland University in 1982 where she studied photography, and in 2010, she completed the Professional Photography program at the Washington School of Photography. I watched my mom transform a small garage into a cozy studio where she makes a client feel at home, giving them confidence to exist in photographs and tell their story!
