My favorite place to shoot anyone is in their home. That especially goes for family photos. There's nowhere you make more ordinary memories with your loved ones than in your own home; the little moments of chaos and love that so easily forgotten amongst the big ones. These are the kind of photos I value most of my own family.
I've photographed this sweet little family several times, including Rachel and Mike's wedding and I always leave them inspired to be a better wife, mother, person. This "at home" session was a surprise for Father's Day and I loved documenting this casual morning at home. I should also mention that Rachel is a great photographer and blogger, and you should definitely be following her blog, Chocolate Milk and Mustard Seeds.
“What i like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.” Karl Lagerfeld I wish I was a writer so I could eloquently tell you just how much this session meant to me. Spending the day with this precious family was such a blessing. I've been wanting to offer all day family documentary sessions for a long time; nothing posed, nothing contrived, just real, messy, beautiful life. The moments I crave to document of my own children are the most ordinary ones and it's incredibly rewarding to be able to do that for others.
