When I first started taking pictures, I was obsessed with finding the perfect locations for each session. I was convinced that if I had a perfect backdrop, the photos would automatically be more special. But over time as I photographed hundreds of families, I realized it wasn't the location making the pictures special, it was the people in them and that big-time magical family love they shared.
This year I have started shooting family sessions (not just newborn sessions!) at client's homes, and I'm in love. There's no better place for your whole family to feel comfortable and let the big love shine. And a bonus for toddlers: all the good snacks are right there in the kitchen! (And the bathroom too for the potty trainers! :p )
So friends, I would love to do more sessions like this one: families at home on film. If you are looking for something different, more relaxed, more real, more snuggled up, look no further than your own backyard (or front yard). Availability is limited on these, so holler at me quick. And thank you to this beautiful family for sharing their hearts with me!
