Sunday Morning In-Home Family Session | Milwaukee Family Photographer

little-x-little-photo_2019-2-24_unraveled_edited (for web)-37.jpg
 

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.

If you’re considering an in home session, I would love to connect! When you’re done looking through this gallery, feel free to type a comment below and tell me what you think!

6 Ways To Prepare For Your In-Home Newborn Session | Milwaukee Family Photographer

 
LITTLE-X-LITTLE-PHOTOGRAPHY_2019-2-14_Narloch (web)-30.jpg

An In-Home N

ewborn Session

Newborn sessions are typically scheduled sometime during the baby’s first month. The session takes place in the comfort of your own home. My goal is to beautifully document the first few weeks of you with your sweet baby. I facilitate with simple prompts throughout the entire session to help inspire authentic connections as the session unfolds.

I’m so inspired by the nurseries I have been so fortunate to photograph! I look forward to walking into a space and documenting all the love that was poured into every single detail. It’s an honor to capture new love in such special places.

If you are planning an in-home newborn session, here are 6 simple things you can do to prepare!

  1. Make sure your baby’s tummy is full just before I get there - a sleepy baby is what we want for the session.

  2. Open window shades. We want the photos to be light and bright!

  3. Tidy up any surfaces in the rooms we’ll be photographing you with your baby - you’ll most likely see everything in the background of your photos.

  4. Turn up the heat! This will help your baby to be comfortable and sleepy for the session.

  5. Wear something comfortable and neutral. A lot of moms choose flowy tops that they can move around in easily while feeling comfortable. Since we’ll be in your home, the photos can have a more casual feel (think barefeet!) and it’s best for your clothes to match the setting.

  6. Relax and enjoy this moment! All you have to do is be yourself and I’ll help with directing the session to capture authentic moments that you can treasure forever.

My New Studio! | Milwaukee Family Photographer

MY NEW STUDIO

So excited for this!

 
 

After several years of only offering on location photo sessions, I now have a studio! I’m so excited to provide this new option to my clients. The timing of this was very intentional, as our Wisconsin fall and winters can be pretty brutal for outdoor photo sessions!

The studio is located in Bay View. It’s a shared studio, meaning I have to reserve my block of time in advance. There are many other creatives and photographers who utilize the same space. I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to take advantage of this amazing space!

The studio has an entire north-facing wall of windows, tall white walls, and a concrete floor. I plan to only utilize the natural light in the space (and avoid using artificial light if possible). I’m still staying true to my style of photography (natural light, lifestyle).

Last weekend I had 6 families participate in my holiday mini sessions. I’m so excited with the results! It was a great first run in the new studio and I think all of my clients had a lot of fun playing with fake snow, pinecones, and listening to holiday music.

I do have a few remaining spots for the mini sessions between now and mid-December. If you are interested in booking a holiday studio session, please contact me at littlexlittlephoto@gmail.com
