I love photographing in people’s homes

This is one of my favorite sessions I’ve done yet. I always suggest to clients that we shoot in their home, but people don’t always want to. I like it because it’s them, it’s their stuff & their place, everyone’s more comfortable and relaxed and doesn’t feel as much like they have to “perform” while we’re out at a location specifically for photos.

I’ve gotten to know this family a bit over the past year, as our kids go to preschool together. The girls are so sweet, and their mom is one of the nicest women you will ever meet. I love the images we got from their session.

Manhattan family

They live in New York on the Upper West Side, a block from Central Park. The kids were a little shy at first but still came running down the hallway of their building to meet me as I came off the elevator, which was awesome. I shot a few photos in their apartment, and then as their mom encouraged them to get ready to go outside to do more photos, the little girl said, “But, Mom, she just took, like, FIVE pictures of me. Isn’t that enough?”

Father’s Day surprise

Their mom hired me to do photos of the kids as a Father’s Day gift for her husband. I love this idea! We did the pictures on the day he left town on business. Here are a few of my favorites.

Loved these boys!

These two brothers are hilarious. They diligently stood still and followed directions for the more posed shots, and then when I told them to be goofy, they really let loose. I loved seeing them crack up!

Three generations

Family of twelve, three generations. They found a great park down in League City where we did their session. These families were fun to work with; they all obviously enjoyed being around each other. Because I needed to capture so many different groups together, I didn’t get to spend too much time with any one kid or family, which I regret, but here are a few of my favorites from that morning.
