While I do love photographing families outdoors, there is something quite magical about an in-home session.
Our homes are our places of refuge, where we feel comfortable, where we can truly be ourselves.
Timeless family photography, in your own home
And this is especially true for children. I adore capturing little ones in their own homes, I often find that children who are a little shy with me in a park, relax as soon as we walk in their front doors, they (like us!) tend to feel more secure and in control on their own turf.
They can show me their favourite toys, read their favourite books, or play their favourite games. The simple joy of jumping on a bed and tickle fights on the sofa will always remind me of happy hours spent in our home!
Window light is the most flattering for photos
And it doesn't really matter how big or small your home is, because even on the darkest of days, I can work with the soft light coming in through your windows. I adore the sense of serenity this can lend to a session.
The magic of an in-home photography session
For me. the true magic of a photography session in your own home is having images of your family in the one place that is already soaked in memories and nostalgia. And in years to come, those frozen moments in time will be all the more precious because they'll evoke memories of you and your family, just as you are, right now.
