One of my favorite ways to spend sessions with clients is in their home. So many families think they need the perfect house to do a photography session at home. I believe all you need is love to do a perfect family session at home. I spent the afternoon with the Parker family at their home in Dana Point. It was a special afternoon and mom and dad were so relaxed (and a bit tired) and there was plenty of love to go around for another little one (on the way!).
So, next time you are thinking about a maternity session or an any-day family session, I highly recommend a real, down-to-earth photography story of your life at home. The little red dinosaur your 4 year old is obsessed with now may not hang around long enough to jog your memory of his passion for T-Rex ten years from now but if you have the photographs of him playing with it in your home, you will always be able to go back to that place in time whenever you look through your session album.
