I love it when a client asks me to do photos in their home, especially for family photos. The reason I love this, is because some day you will move on, and your kids will be able to look back and see the family as you were in that setting. It is more than a photo, it is a time capsule for the future. Here are a few of my favorites from 2011!
This is one of my favorite photos from this year! I think the client looks like a model in her daughter’s beautiful nursery, and the bare feet make it even better!
This photo was part of a series we did for this little boy’s second birthday. His parents had me come over and spend a typical Saturday with them. I photographed them playing together, reading, singing, racing across the driveway, and more. It was an awesome record of his life at that stage, and such a smart idea on the part of his parents!
I loved doing these maternity photos. While we did a few indoors, we shot the majority at home. When their son was born, we went back and shot him in some of the places we shot mama the month before.
I love this photo of mama and papa waiting patiently in the nursery!
Here is one last photo . . . with the complete family.
Doing photos in the home can be a bit more work, we have to bring in lights, and sometimes move things around a bit, but it can be worth it for the moments we catch, and the memories you are creating for your children!
Happy New Year!
