This is my favorite type of session-when you invite me into your home and we capture what life is like for your family right now. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Colorado and we have some b-e-a-utiful places to photograph outdoors, but when it comes to documenting a new baby’s first days- it’s natural to stay at home. Home is where life happens. And for me our house is such a big part of our family’s story. I’m glad we’ve had sessions here to document what life was like when there were legos to walk around, spilled crackers on the table, and a house full of love and life.
If it sounds intimidating to have a session in your home, let me put you at ease. You don’t have to clean your home top to bottom and dust actually looks like magical pixy dust in pictures:) You don’t have to have a styled home from all the latest Pinterest boards. You don’t have to have all your projects done. You don’t have to have floor to ceiling windows.
When I arrive, I take a look around to find the best available light. Sometimes I move a few things around to make the best use of the light. Nothing big, maybe an ottoman here or table there. When I have a location I like, you and your family do what you normally would. I’ve photographed babies getting baths, hair being braided, family’s playing games, books being read, and because real life isn’t perfect a few tantrums;) There really is no pressure. I’ve even had dad’s tell me, “it wasn’t that bad.” I might be joking, but really, I know dads aren’t a huge fan of picture day. If that’s true for you, try a lifestyle session because moments are valued more than poses.
Here is a recent session I had with a lovely young family. Now they did have a Pinterest perfect home, but remember it’s family that makes beautiful pictures. <3
