WHAT IS A HOME STORY SESSION?
This type of session is designed to depict a day in your life doing what you enjoy with the ones you love. Whether it's a lazy day at home just making a pancake breakfast in your PJ's, a pillow fight with the family, or snuggling on the couch with a cup of coffee-- a Home Story Session is sure to be full of fun and great memories!
WHAT IS YOUR STORY?
You should plan a couple simple activities that I can capture. Choose activities that feel genuine to you and your family. It can be as laid back or adventurous as your heart desires! Here are a few ideas:
Make breakfast (pancakes are super fun!)
Snuggle the one you love on the couch- coffee in hand
Get comfy with some books on the nursery floor
Bake + decorate cookies
Have the Grandparents come for a visit
Build a fort out of sheets
Play your favorite family board game
Have a campfire out in the back yard and roast some marshmallows
Pillow fights are always a good time!
Catch firefly's at sunset
Snuggling in your PJ's with hot cocoa
PJ party (bare feet are a must!)
Game of hide-n-seek
JUST BE YOU!
My goal as your photographer is to capture the beauty of your family just being yourselves. As parents, we often want that perfect little portrait of our family, and sure- we will definitely get a few of those, but if your little one doesn’t sit still and smile-- don't worry- sometimes those make for the best photos! And let's be honest, kids NEVER sit still for long in real life anyways, right?
So let your kids be kids!
If they like to run around and scream at the top of their lungs for no reason, let them. This is YOUR family. EMBRACE it. I promise you, I live for the chaos, and LOVE every minute of it. And guess what...your kids will have much more fun during the session if you run around WITH THEM, rather than telling them to stop it and sit down.
"I've booked our HOME STORY SESSION, what do I need to do about prepping my house?"
That's easy- nothing major here! Simply just tidy up a bit. Do a quick de-cluttering of the room (or rooms) we will be shooting in. These rooms don’t need to be magazine worthy by any means-- but I do want your space to be the best version of your house possible! And that's it!
