I always love spending time with families over and over again. I was lucky enough to photograph Charlotte’s newborn session and her one year session. Before they moved out of their house, this fam invited me back for a Clawson family session at home. I can’t believe how much Benjamin has grown since I first met him. In fact, we were talking about how Charlotte was acting just like Benjamin did during our first session together – it’s an age thing for sure! Either way, we got some great shots of these cuties just doing what they do best – being themselves.
I love doing family sessions like this – just relaxed and letting everyone be comfortable in their space. Sometimes for little ones, it’s the best option. Also, it gave this family some last memories in their home before moving.
There is something so special when a family invites me into their home and allows me to photograph some of those precious family moments when there’s a new member of the family. Despite my business name, I don’t actually own a studio or do studio photography work (at least right now). I’m completely on-location. That’s not what the name is about – another post for another day! I favor newborn sessions done in the home and really focused on capturing the family without all the props and fanfare. That’s just not me.
Sarah and Christian welcomed Elliott into the world in early May and she had sought me out prior in hopes of a lifestyle session for her newborn. I was so excited because I actually really like shooting families in home. I found this out after my good friend Allyson allowed me to do her daughter’s newborn photos.
Big brother Xavier, who is now three, provided an endless amount of toddler entertainment. I have a feeling one day these two will be good buddies and that Xavier will enjoy having a little brother to play and run around with. I know I feel that way about my younger sister. But for the session, we smiled and waited for a sweet moment to arrive…and it did. Elliott was a perfect angel and cried less than all the other newborns I’ve encountered…win!
