If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that in home sessions are my thing. I adore capturing families in their own space and I don’t think there’s anything more beautiful than a family embracing their every day. Here are my top reasons why I think you should consider an in home session.
Here in the PNW, the weather over the winter months can be pretty miserable. If you have an in home session, there is no need to brave the rain, no need to stand outside in the cold, and no need to reschedule if it gets too bad.
Most outdoor shots occur in the golden hour, the hour before sunset. While this is fine in the cooler months, over summer, that means starting a session around 8.30pm. Obviously, this is incredibly late for little ones. I usually start indoor sessions around 10am. Kids are normally wide awake, and not yet ready for the afternoon nap.
Comfort of Little Ones (and Big Ones)
Small children are often overwhelmed with being in locations they are not familiar with. A photo session at home means they are in their comfort zone, the four walls in which they feel safe. Likewise, adults are often more comfortable at home too. Sometimes it can feel awkward to be having your picture taken in public with other people around.
No Long Trek
There are so many beautiful locations around Washington, but so many of them require little children to walk to get to them. If we have the session in your home, they just have to roll out of bed! No complaining that feet are tired!
Your Home is Special
Where else do you snuggle your babies to sleep, curl up in bed with them on Saturday mornings, read stories to them? Your home is the place where first steps are taken, bedtime stories are told, and memories are made. There are little pieces of you all over your house and these will become your children’s fondest memories. There really is no better place to capture your family. Your home is uniquely you and helps to tell your family’s own story.
