Dallas TX In-Home Family Session | Seattle Family Photographer
Old friends, new kids, and how to mix it up for in-home sessions
I go home to Texas a few times a year and always love when I have the opportunity to photography families while I am there. The change in light and scenery are inspiring and fun. This session was particularly special because it involved David’s friend (and mine, but his friend first) from college. We went to college in Switzerland, so it was incredible to see Stephanie back in Texas, now married with two sweet boys. Thank you, Stephanie, for the chance to catch up, meet the fam, and document this time in your life.
I wanted to add a note about in-home family photography sessions (in Seattle or Dallas). Ya’ll know I am a firm believer in taking photos in your home. I love the context, the level of coziness, a “container” for wild kids, and just a place to capture very authentic connections. However, when I say in-home, I also mean around home. We walked to the edge of their neighborhood to take the outdoor photos. It is great to add variety, a change of light, and sometimes an outdoor photo that is perfect to send grandparents or put on a Christmas card, if the idea of sending photos from in your house, out to everyone you know, is not your jam.
After we wandered in the early morning light (this is my new favorite thing. Photographing families at sunrise if we are going to be outside) we marched back to the house and the kids each took snack breaks, giving me time to photograph different pairings of people and take our time.
Lifestyle photography has been growing in popularity for a while now, but I know that many people feel unsure or have questions - so please comment or reach out to me if you want to know more about this style of authentic and more candid photographs.
