I talk a lot about lifestyle newborn sessions over here — after all, newborn sessions are the heart and soul of this whole thing! Capturing those first weeks of life – how incredibly tiny they are, the indescribable joy they bring, the feelings and emotions of having a very piece of your self outside your body – it’s so, so important to me.
However, as I’ve reflected over my business in the past few weeks, I’ve realized I haven’t devoted anywhere near enough content on home or lifestyle family sessions *in general*. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve only blogged one home session that wasn’t also a newborn session (granted, it is a really incredible one soooo make sure to check it out if you haven’t!), and that’s just a travesty!
So, here is one of my absolute favorite home sessions of all time….from THREE YEARS AGO.
I know. I know.
These three incredible kiddos are three years older now…but man, do I still love this session so much. Home sessions are special because they’re in your own space. There’s a freedom to come as you are — kids are ready to play and be silly and are SO proud to show off their rooms and toys and things that make them THEM.
Michelle’s response after seeing her gallery for the first time catches everything I aim for with these sessions: authentic + real + documentary moments to relive again and again.
“Thank you!!! They are beautiful! I can’t wait to share with our families — I love that you captured how much these kids MOVE constantly!!! Haha!! I’m so happy we will always have these to look back on. Seriously you’re amazing.”
Outdoor sessions are lots of fun, too — and I am going to feature a few more of those on the blog in the coming weeks as well!! But, when you live in Indiana, they’re just a little trickier to plan in the winter months.
So, here’s my post to encourage you to embrace H O M E.
