The Bushman Family | Peter Rabbit Inspired Nursery

I absolutely love in-home family sessions. Especially when there is a new baby involved. As some of you know, I used to be more of a styled newborn photographer. I would put naked babies in cute and adorable poses, wrap them up in swaddles and put them in baskets. I think the styled newborn photography, is absolutely adorable. It is definitely a work of art. And it's a lot of work. I recently have changed to a more lifestyle type of photography and I am loving it! 

First off, I am loving how involved the family is. During the styled session, I would only take a couple of pictures of the family, and then focus on the baby for the remaining three hours of a session. Now, it is all about the family. Siblings and parents are now just as much a part of the session as that sweet baby. I love showing the different relationships within the family.

Secondly, I love that families get to hang out in the comfort of their own home. I realize the stress and anxiety that can come from trying to get at least one kid ready for family photos, leaving the house trying to remembering everything, and then discovering that the baby has blown out a diaper. So stressful, right? When we do an in-home session, I come to you! You can hang out in your sweatpants until I get there! How great is that?! 

Lastly, we are creating and capturing moments in the most sacred place. Your home. There is just something beautiful about getting the family all snuggled on the couch, reading to your children their favorite book. Those interactions are the ones you want to remember. The real-life moments in the comfort of your own home. And that is beautiful.
