One reason I love lifestyle sessions to be scheduled in a client’s home, is that they are easy for mom to do. No need to wrangle up the family, I just capture you being you, in your home, doing everyday things. We are so used to our everyday routine that we sometimes overlook those precious fleeting moments, then realize they were great only in our memories. Lifestyle sessions make us press pause and enjoy those moments which we then celebrate now and for years to come.
I get nervous butterflies before each and every session, even more so when I am photographing another professional photographer. I was honored when Chelsea from Chelsea Little Photography asked me to do a little mini session to get her in the picture, something we as both moms and photographers can often forget to do.
A newborn session had already been done as her little one was over 3 months by this time. It was however, an important session for her; she wanted to be in the picture with her newest addition. These are precious memories I was privileged to capture for her.
She was still getting ready when I arrived and told me she was a bit frazzled (as are most moms)…I couldn’t tell, once she picked up her little one and snuggled and rocked her, she lit up with love. Her big brother decidedly was popping in and out, providing a little comic relief and I got to catch a bit of real life, which I love!
These photographs will be memories frozen in time for her and her family to look at as her children continue to grow and can no longer be rocked and snuggled quite so easily.
Contact me to schedule a session, so that you too can capture your everyday!
