Getting to do sessions in your home is one of my very favorite things. I get to make beautiful art for your family that is unique just to you. This is art that connects your family to your story, makes history through showcasing your current life. Photos that show how beautiful your ordinary life is! Photos that describe who you are. The stuff that shows the memories you are making each day. The little annoying things that one day you will miss and the beautiful big things that you know you want to remember.
“Yeah, looks cool but let me tell you…(insert “my home isn’t pretty, or I would get stressed”) comment here. I understand.
But let me tell you a little secret – your home doesn’t have to be super fancy or super nice or super awesome. Your home is you!
There are so many reasons an in home session should your pick too! But here’s the the top reason…
Your children are most comfortable in their own home. And you will be too!
If you want pictures that capture the deep love and great joy you have for each other than you want a setting that makes your kids feel secure and loved.
In Home Family Lifestyle Sessions are about more than just getting perfect portraits – they are about telling the raw, organic moments that happen for your family.
How your little one wants to bring you all the books.
The way your kids throw themselves on the couch and chill.
Laughter, giggles and snuggles.
The favorite toys of your littles in this season (and maybe a jump on the bed.)
These sessions mean you can eat doughnuts and drink ALL the coffee.
You can do a favorite family activity.
Swinging in the back yard.
This isn’t just stuff, this isn’t just mundane – this is your life. Your ordinary life that is quite beautiful. This is where your memories are being made.
The S Family Lifestyle Session
Last fall I had so much fun capturing Elizabeth and her family. Elizabeth runs a great blog and instagram account with all things for thriving in motherhood and homeschooling – go check out her work and see the resources and advice she has for moms and families.She also is writing her first middle grade devotional which I can’t wait to read.
Getting to step into their home for a session was so much fun. From reading to doing a quick fall craft (seriously follow her for lots of great ideas!) and then finishing with a dance party and doughnuts, I had so much fun stepping into their lives for a few hours.
Doing an activity together is something I always encourage families during sessions in home – they choose to read together, eat their special Saturday doughnuts. We spent time in the rooms that mean alot to them and doing things their kids love to do.
Have you fallen in love with these photos and want to plan your own lifestyle session? Yay!! I want you to make the magic with you! Send me a message and let’s chat details!
I am a family & newborn lifestyle photographer serving the Central Oklahoma area and metro Oklahoma City – I love getting to come to family’s homes and turn their ordinary into beautiful keepsake photos that tell their story.
