Recently, I have fallen in LOVE with in-home lifestyle sessions. I just think they’re so beautiful! There are SO MANY reasons why I love photographing clients in their homes! So today, I’m going to share a few of those reasons with you!
IN-HOME LIFESTYLE SESSIONS CAPTURE YOUR FAMILY IN THEIR NATURAL ENVIRONMENT.
Having an in home lifestyle session allows your photographer to capture your family as you truly are! We’re able to photograph you in the place your family does daily life! This is where your memories are made, so it only makes sense that it would be a perfect location for photos! Not to mention, you spent so much time decorating your living room or your child’s nursery that it deserves to be documented!
2. IT’S CONVENIENT!
As a new mother, I know how difficult it can be leaving the house with littles ones- and I currently just have one little fella to plan for! You gotta have the diaper bag packed, an extra set of clothes, and right as we are about to walk out the door its not uncommon for him to spit up on his carefully curated outfit. When you add the pressure of being photographed to all that, I know it can be ALOT on a family! So let me come to you! You don’t have to have anything packed, and if someone messes up their outfit, no pressure! You can just run upstairs and change it quickly while I photograph your other kiddos :) It’s so easy peasy!
3. ONE DAY YOUR CHILDREN WILL THANK YOU
How much do you truly remember from childhood? I know I don’t recall details as clear as I would like to, and you would probably say the same! One day when your children are all grown up, they will be so glad to have photos of them in their childhood home. Now let’s cue the country song, “The House That Built Me.” ;)
But for real, it’s very likely one day you will move out of their childhood home, and they will LOVE looking back at old photos and reminiscing about their time spent and the memories made in your home!
4. WE CAN INCORPORATE YOUR FAMILY’S FAVORITE ACTIVITIES INTO THE SHOOT!
Does one of your little ones love to bake? Let’s photograph your family making cookies in the kitchen! Does your son love to build legos with dad? I’ll photograph that! Do you love reading to your little one in the corner chair in his room? Let me photograph him curled up in your lap, while you do just that!
You may be thinking, Tierney, my home isn’t that pretty. Our home hasn’t been graced by Joanna Gaines’s presence and I don’t own anything from her Magnolia collection at Target. Ya’ll, that is NO PROBLEM! I don’t expect your home to look like that AT ALL! You have children, you’re doing LIFE in your home! At this time, it’s probably not practical for your home to look like a Pottery Barn catalog (although if it does, kudos to you!). Either way, I’ll be able to help you make a few small tweaks and adjustments that will make your photographs look fabulous! Just trust me! So what do you say, let’s book that in home lifestyle session!
