In-home family, portrait photos are the best. I really enjoy these family sessions because it’s in their natural environment for small children and new parents. In-home family sessions especially work perfectly for brand new mommies and small children. It provides a relaxed natural environment where the children have fewer distractions and feel most comfortable.
It’s also really nice for photographing a family as it’s your own home with your own things and a true representation of what your life was like during raising your children in their early stages. It’s a comfortable environment for nursing, snacks, and breaks if needed. I like to call this type of family session “a day in the life” family portrait.
This particular family portrait took place in my client’s home in their master bedroom. The light was lovely. They had beautiful neural color tones which provided a timeless feel for their images. And the photos are a natural and true representation of their life as it is right now. Many hours spent bonding with their toddler and new baby relaxing in their room together as a family. These images are timeless and evoke a beautiful new chapter in their life and in their own home.
Furthermore, because this family session was captured in their own home, their family images will match really nice with their decor when they go to hang the photos up on their walls. This particular Portland family photo session would look wonderful in either color or black and white as all of the images are simple and timeless.
Utilizing the master bedroom is also fun for little children, as you can play on the bed have pillow wars, jump and be a little silly too!
Barefeet photos are fun and provide a relaxed and natural feel for in-home portrait sessions
