When the weather turns, so does my environment for photographing little ones and their families. This session held extra sweetness, as they had just welcomed their fourth member of the family. They are still adjusting to their new “normal” with two children, and they are doing so with grace and joy. I always welcome an indoor, at-home session because with the sacredness of home comes a special authenticity. There is nowhere you feel more comfortable than in your own space, and that opens up personalities, laughter, and connectedness in a special way. I always feel so honored when I am invited into these intimate moments. This newly-minted quartet was lovely to work with, and their sweet new baby was sleepy and snuggly. I adore the images of mom breast-feeding and looking at the new little one with such love. You can’t replace moments like those…being a new parent is exhausting and exhilarating, but filled with so much light. I hope that these capture that in the life of these family members.
If you’ve been considering booking family portraits, but were wary of the weather, I’d encourage you to consider an indoor, lifestyle shoot. For small children, these are ideal, because they love showing off their beloved dolls, trucks, and toys, and it can make them feel at ease with a photographer. For parents, it decreases stress because everything you may need is already in your home (missing hairbrushes, last minute snacks), and you can feel more relaxed. It is also the perfect place to document the real-life joys you experience every day, like baking cookies with grandma, reading books by the fire, or baking pies in a cozy kitchen.
In addition, I’m offering $200 off session fees and a complementary $200 credit that can be used towards prints and albums for indoor family session booked before Christmas. If you are interested in learning more, click HERE to be directed to the contact page! Now is the perfect time to book!
