The weather was miserable on the day of our session but I couldn’t have asked for a nicer way to spend a grey winter day than in this family’s cozy home. On location shoots in your home are often a relaxing way for families with young children to shine.

Baby I came into the world early and in quite a dramatic way so I was so glad to hear from his mom and dad that he was at home and healthy with his parents and big brother. I loved playing ‘ball and peekaboo’ with big brother and working with their dog who insisted on being part of as many photos as possible (clearly, a part of the family!)

The session was a joy.  I love going to family homes because it makes the session unique. We talked about Christmas plans and their first Christmas as family of 4. I like being able to use a family’s furniture for posing. Snuggly shots of moms and dads curled up with their little ones are some of my favourites, especially when they get to enjoy a quiet moment with their new baby in amongst the chaos of family life. Home is where the heart is.
