5 Reasons In-Home Sessions are Uniquely You- Montgomery, TX Family Photography

5 Reasons In-Home Sessions are Uniquely You!

Montgomery, TX Family Photography

Family portraits are so important! They provide your family with memories, milestones to look back on, and a legacy to pass on for generations! The trend is to find a a beautiful outdoor location and frolic in the fields. Don’t get me wrong– I love a golden sunset in a field! But, there are more options than that!  Your family will look just as gorgeous in your own home as they do anywhere else. In fact, your session might be BETTER because of it!

1. You LOVE your home! It’s not just a house.

My husband and I recently moved into a home that was built just for us. We picked the floors, carpet, granite, brick, the siding, garage colors, etc. Our home is ours and we adore it!  We spend a lot of time here and have made it our home. My home has portraits that my toddler drew, baby toys, and our favorite couch. It has our bed, and my son’s nursery. All of those things make our home ours. It is personal and unique to us.

Your home is unique to you! It is a location no one else can recreate! It is where your children are growing up and creating memories! Your walls are covered in your wedding portraits, family portraits, and art work that you picked specifically for your child! You may have even spent months decorating a new nursery while anticipating a new baby! Those are the details you will look back on with love!

2. Everyone is comfortable. 

One of my favorite things about shooting in clients homes, is how comfortable everyone is, especially the kids. Children love to show me their toys, their bedrooms, and give me a tour of the house before we get started!

3. All about you! 

In-home sessions are the best at reflecting your traditions, values, and family lifestyle! When I book in-home sessions, I ask the family to think about things they like to do together, or things that make them smile.

Of course, we start each session with the traditional portraits, but the real fun begins when we get a little more candid! Do you like to bake together?  Do you make pancakes on Christmas morning? Is there a favorite game you play? Do you have a library full of favorite books to read?

4. It gives your kids something real to look back and remember.

Twenty years from now, when your children pull out their old photographs, they will look back and say, “Oh, I loved sliding down that banister!” Or, “My favorite room in the house was the kitchen, because I was always cooking with Mom.” Whatever it may be, your home holds real memories and personality that it adds to your images.

Get in there!

Did anyone else start singing “Yah,Yah” when you read the title? Don’t let me be the only one!

Since my littlest was born, I have made it my mission to get in the frame with him at least once a month. When my boys grow up, I want them to have oodles of pictures of their family. I want them to be able to look at a photograph and feel the love we have for  them, see the fun we had together, or remember the adventures we have been on. Those memories will be there for them forever! {That’s also why I insist on printing our pictures! I’ve been working on how to save all of our photographs, but more on that another time!}

The Beauty of the Self Timer

Moms, get in there! Give your kids the gift of memories and try a self portrait! Break out your phone and balance it on your dresser with some books. Then, set your self timer and RUN! That’ll make your kids laugh, too! Today, I challenge you to get in the frame with your kids! They need memories of you, too! I am always the one behind the camera, (like most moms!) so lately, I really have put in more effort to make self-portraits a thing for us!

This weekend, I had my hair highlighted for the first time since my wedding! I was bored and needed a change!  I got to visit with my gorgeous friend, Erykca, for three hours while she made my hair beautiful again! Let’s be honest, as a stay at home mom, my hair is rarely done and I wear makeup like once a month. Occasions like that just have to be documented so I pulled out my tripod and set the interval timer. My favorite thing about the interval timer on my camera is the bloopers that are always hilarious! {You have to read to the end for the blooper goodness!}

Tips for toddlers

Bribery! I’m all about the bribery! My toddler has suckers in a lot of his pictures and there is totally a reason for that! He has his own opinions about how things should go. Those opinions are usually the opposite of mine and this where the sucker comes in handy.  (Pray for me, y’all! When he’s a teenager… good gravy!) Usually, I can distract him just long enough to get the shot I’m looking for and move on. This was not that day! {Keep scrolling!}

Some days, I don’t even need bribes– just some tickling, tossing in the air, and snuggles will do just fine! Toddlers make like fun.  It’s always best to be prepared for everything because you never know who gave them the wrong color popsicle that morning!

Tips for Preschoolers and Bigger Kiddos

Engage in conversation! Have them tell you a story, show you silly faces, etc. What makes them laugh?  Think about what you want to remember most about this age. Does your daughter say a word in a silly way? Do you love to twirl her curls? Figure out what it is that you want to remember most and recreate that during your little mini-shoot! Those little moments are the ones you will want to treasure forever!

Moms, my challenge for you is to just GET IN THERE! I know that you and your kiddo will both look back on these moments with a grateful heart! 

And now, for the bloopers. These are the BEST part! I told you, an interval timer is a fantastic thing!
