I knew from the moment this mother contacted me for an at-home lifestyle family photography session that it was going to be magical. She specifically mentioned wanting to capture her adventurous kids playing in the yard with their beagle and climbing their favorite tree at their new home in the Main Line area. Several months out, she booked the best weekend in October for foliage with me for a golden hour shoot and it. was. amazing. We did have to reschedule a few times over due to rain BUT we got that gorgeous light she had been hoping for. The kids personalities shone through, they played, all together, laughed like crazy, rode bikes, drew with chalk, rolled in leaves, and yes…even climbed— really high up!!—- in their favorite tree (scroll below for my favorite shot of the pink glitter boots in a tree…it was such a perfect moment).
At home sessions are such a perfect option for a family shoot for many reasons: the kids (and adults!!) are often most relaxed and themselves at home, you don’t need to pack up a ton of snacks, outfit changes, etc. It’s all right there for you! And it’s such a wonderful way to document your home as the backdrop AND update family and child portraits for the year.
I travel all around the Philadelphia area for at home lifestyle family photography sessions at any time of the year. Interested? Send me a message so we can connect about creating a lifestyle family session perfect for your own family!
