In home sessions are the sessions that really got me into photography. While I love capturing families and moments in studio, there is absolutely nothing like capturing families, especially children in their own environment, where they are relaxed and free to be exactly who they are! I was beyond thrilled when the H family invited me into their home and I got to spend some time capturing mama and her adorable daughter as they went through their morning routine.
Washing eggs, craft time, story time, play time, making lunch.. These are all things unique to each family, things that seem mundane while you are doing them, but once the kids are grown and out of that phase, those are the times you are going to cherish and remember and want to look back on. These are the times that you don’t think to capture, or if you do it’s hard to capture them yourself.
I also find, even through my own time, that physically being able to see those times instead of just experiencing them, it brings a whole new element into it. Each session is different. Each child is different. Each parent is different. Each family dynamic is different, and more importantly each home is different. This mom… I swear I have it on my bucket list for her to come and design a home for me one day, but my soul is just happy I got to spend some time in her home capturing their memories.
Take a peek below at some of my favourite images from this beautiful session, and I hope that I get invited into many more homes in the future to be able to tell more family stories!
I hope you enjoyed a sneak into this session!
