Why I prefer in-home lifestyle sessions for my newborn and family photo sessions
Family photoshoots around the holidays usually means one thing – mini sessions. There’s Mom who did all the hard work in finding a photographer, coordinating everyone’s outfits and getting to the shoot on time, only to have Dads groan and the kids go crazy. It always seems to be a mad scramble to get the family together for that one opportunity each year for those holiday cards. Holiday mini shoots seem to always be stressful for all involved. But there are so many other ways to capture the true essence of a family without any stress at all. In-home newborn or family photography sessions are your answer!
In-home newborn or family sessions for your family are the perfect place to capture your family in their natural element. Your home is the heart of your family and these are the memories you’ll have down the road, spending Sunday mornings making pancakes with the kids, or spending an afternoon reading to your children. I started photographing families in their homes in 2018 and those sessions by far have been the most meaningful to my clients. Most moms have told me that they don’t have memories of their families looking perfectly at the camera all dressed up. Their memories are of their babies learning to crawl, toddlers with food smothered all over their cute little faces, their sons and daughters decorating Christmas cookies. Those are the memories that Moms cherish.
In-home lifestyle sessions are perfect for any time of year, but especially when the weather is just too cold to spend outdoors. Your home is the perfect backdrop for these photoshoots as that is where your memories are made. There is something magical about having a collection of professional images taken right in the very home that you brought your babies home to, or where you hosted your first Thanksgiving dinner. Each image is captured with a fine art approach and these images will be cherished not just by you, but by your children and their children.
