A couple weekends ago, I had the opportunity to photograph my friend Jen and her family. After weighing our options for the location of the session (let’s be real - our options were “frigid cold” or “cozy and warm”), we opted to do the session inside Jen’s home! This was also an easy decision because [as you’ll see in the photographs] Jen’s house is gorgeous. Just knowing I’d get to work in such a beautiful space made me giddy with excitement to document this family!
When I arrived, her two little ones were filled with energy and enthusiasm. I’ve found that kids are usually experts at breaking the ice right from the start (one reason why I love photographing them!). It makes my job of capturing them “in their element” so effortless. Jen, Tim, and the kids spent a little over an hour happily running around the house with a few quiet moments sprinkled in throughout our time together as I photographed them on this Sunday morning.
I love a creative challenge, and this session really pushed me. I embraced the low directional light (it was a cloudy day) and went for a moody feel with the photos. In-home sessions allow for photographs to tell a truly authentic story about your family. When I look through these photographs, I can just feel how much Jen and Tim love those two little ones. Seeing them hold, rock, read with, and cuddle these babies is so heartwarming! My goal for every one of my photo sessions is to bottle up the love you have for your family. I love documenting your authentic love in a beautiful for you to treasure these moments in time forever.
