A Sweet Saturday Morning at Home

Each and every time I do an in-home photo session, I feel like I’ve been given a gift. Being welcomed into a family’s home and invited to document them in that most authentic and meaningful space is such a privilege and an honor. I love witnessing and capturing the unique beauty of every family that extends such an invitation to me, as each experience is so lovely in its own particular way. And often, being in a family’s home provides such a clear and honest portrait of who that family is and how they approach life.

This in-home family session was no different and, in fact, was perhaps even more authentic than the average session, as just minutes before I arrived at this beautiful family’s home they’d discovered a significant amount of standing water in their basement! I would be willing to bet that very few of us would be calm and collected upon such a discovery and yet they were. The youngest member of the family was still having his morning nap and one parent was a bit delayed getting ready after having stepped in the large puddle downstairs, but the other members of the family greeted me with smiles on their faces, ready for fun. And even though there were some phone calls to the plumber during our time together (he actually arrived in the middle of the session and headed downstairs to take stock of the damage) there were still smiles, jokes and so much loving silliness during our couple of hours together. This family of four danced, sang, laughed, cried (baby A, that is), played and were not only full of love, but replete with grace in the face of the unexpected.
