Today's guest will be a familiar voice to a lot of you. She's the host of the Family Photographer podcast. Another podcast focused less on the gear and technicals and more on the legacy and power of storytelling through the photos you take. In this interview we talk about so much more than photography like the importance your photos have on your children and being self aware enough to live the life you want to through photography. I'm excited to talk with Jenny Stein.
