The Huxall family recently welcomed their third child. So, it was the perfect time to schedule an in-home lifestyle session! I love photographing these sessions with families of all sizes and life stages. It’s so fun to interact with the kiddos and get a sneak peek into their daily life at home. I had a great time spending a morning with the Huxalls, and I’m thrilled to share these sweet shots from their gallery.
Being a toddler mom myself, I love interacting with other toddlers. The Huxall’s oldest girl greeted me at the door when I showed up for the family’s in-home lifestyle session and instantly started chatting me up. She and her brother talked to me while their mom and dad finished getting ready. They told me about the sports they’re playing, their favorite colors, and their new baby brother. It was so sweet to spend time with them before the session began! I knew they felt comfortable with me, which always makes for the best portraits.
The family wore white and blue clothing for the session, which matched perfectly with the décor in their home. Their newborn slept peacefully, and the kiddos behaved so well. They were full of laughter and smiles that made the portraits even sweeter. It was a fun and relaxing morning, proving that family portraits don’t have to be stressful! Staying in a comfortable environment like the home is so helpful for preventing overwhelm for both parents and kids.
As a photographer who loves capturing families, I’ve found an in-home lifestyle session is the best option for parents with young kids. Photographing within your home isn’t just meaningful but provides extra comfort for everyone, especially your children. I love asking kids about their favorite toy or a picture hanging on the wall. I believe this helps them feel more comfortable in the situation (after all, there’s a stranger with a camera pointed at them!). It also allows me to capture authentic personality portraits you’ll always cherish.
I’m so grateful to the Huxall family for welcoming me into their home to capture these amazing portraits! In-home lifestyle sessions are so fun to photograph, especially when I get to hang out with sweet kiddos. Are you and your family entering a new chapter? I would be honored to document this exciting time of transition. Get connected with me to book your in-home lifestyle session today!
