You all know by this point that lifestyle, or documentary style, sessions are my jam. They're my absolute favorite and I feel like I'm totally in my element when I'm just documenting real moments of love and laughter. As you can imagine, I was beyond thrilled when Nicole asked me to join her family as she and her husband celebrated their anniversary, and just photograph whatever they decided to do for the evening. I live for sessions like these. It's where my passion lies. And I hope you can see that passion come out in these images.
On a warm August night, I joined this beautiful family in their first home, which they have worked incredibly hard on to make it their own. I think I gasped right out loud when I walked in the door because it was so beautifully decorated. When I asked them about it, I found out they had completely gutted and redone the entire first floor. What was even more incredible was that they did it by hand, together. Not only are their family memories in this home, but they'd put in their blood, sweat and tears to turn this house into their dream home. Isn't that incredible?!
I spent about 2 hours just following, observing, and snapping, as the "B" family read books, built towers, made s'mores, played outside, played games, listened to records, and celebrated the union that began this part of their life journey. We all had so much fun and I adore these photos, which document their love and reality.
"B" Family - Thank you so much for inviting me into your home to capture these memories and fleeting moments for your family. Your home is filled to the brim with love and kindness!
