I'm sure by now that my clients think I just want to get into their houses and will say anything to gain entrance, and while I do enjoy seeing how other people live, I can promise you that's not my motivation. Ideally, if I could meet everyone at home and then head to the park, we'd have the best of both worlds, but that's not always possible. So, when the weather turns chilly, it's the perfect time to capture images at home. I find kids are often much more comfortable at home and show a side of themselves to me that I wouldn't see in a park setting. My favorite part of an in-home session is after I've been there a bit; I get to head off with one kiddo at a time. This is when I to talk to them and find out who they are and what they love. What are they reading? Who are their favorite superheros? And, what was their best Halloween costume EVER?! As we talk, they forget I have my camera pointed at them. Taking photos is my passion, but connecting with my subject is my goal. This connection feeds my soul. But, more importantly, it lets children know they are listened to and seen. In the end, I'm able to deliver images to mom and dad that honestly capture the essence of their beautiful (and much loved) children. I hope you'll consider inviting me over next time you decide it's time to book a session.
