There's something about these natural, candid lifestyle photos that I've found in the past year that holds a special spot in my heart-- something about the genuine reactions I am able to capture when I can just be a fly on the wall, watching and photographing real moments in your own home. These are now my favorite ones to capture of my own children, ones that allow them to be little, to play and be carefree and move about as they please, and to allow me to document life as it is in this moment. They are just so special and deserve to be remembered.
Last week I had the chance to capture some of these photos for a close friend of mine. There's nothing like Mommy snuggles while reading your favorite books, playing on your new slide you got for Christmas, and of course taking a break to enjoy your favorite popcorn snack! In their in-home lifestyle session, I gave them minimal prompts or directions and enjoyed following the kids around the house doing some of the things they love to do most. Wade is almost ONE, which is hard for me to believe because he was my very first newborn session I ever did! And Miriam is such a fun ball of energy who loves singing, jumping on the couch, and making special things in her kitchen. Thanks for letting me capture these special pictures for you, Tam!
