If you are looking for a either a unique session or one to truly showcase their beautiful family, a lifestyle at-home session is one for you! This reminds me of how I fell in love with photography. It was for the people and to capture their relationships along with all the touchy-feely stuff :) Of course, I often have to “pose” or direct my clients but only in such a way that feels natural to them. It’s important that they don’t look or feel stiff. I’m a strong believer that if the people do not like how they look in the photo or if the expression just isn’t right, it doesn’t matter how gorgeous the lighting is or how amazing the background is, people won’t love it.
I always encourage my families and couples to try be themselves and direct them accordingly because the camera will “feel” that. At-home sessions provides the quintessential environment for my clients to “just be”. Parents, kids, and even couples are in their safest and most familiar environment. And that serves as a total advantage to bring the best out of them. Sometimes, we get so obsessed with “the perfect outfit” in “the perfect wilderness” with “the perfect sunset”, that we forget that beauty can be found all around us… anywhere love is, there is beauty. Total cheese, I know but it’s so true! I highly encourage everyone to give at-home sessions a try! Whether you’re looking for an engagement, family, senior, or maternity portraits, there’s no place like home ;) These photos are really to be cherished for life.
