Sacramento Lifestyle Photographer | In-Home Session

Cropped-photograph-of-three-children-in-sacramento-area-home

A type of photography I’ve been doing more is in-home lifestyle sessions. While I still adore outdoor sunsets in Sacramento’s grassy fields, photo shoots taken in client homes resonate with me in a different, more visceral way. It’s like the sense of nostalgia you get from flipping through old family albums and seeing your childhood home the way it was years ago. In-home lifestyle sessions offer a glimpse into the most intimate space of home for children to look back upon in years to come.

While these lifestyle sessions are done in the context of the home, just like outdoor sessions, elevating your family’s wardrobe makes the final photos that much more eye-pleasing. It may be as simple as coordinating neutral clothing for newborn portraits, or as fun as this family’s beachy, nautical-inspired attire. I also love the barefeet for this family — it brings to mind relaxed Saturday mornings and chasing games around the house. And yet this family’s coordinated clothing still make for beautiful portraits.

We next moved onto individual portraits of the kids. I always, in all my sessions, photograph a mix of more formal, posed portraits like this, and candid/lifestyle shots. (Even when a shot looks candid, it’s usually set up with family members positioned by me.) I could not get over how adorable this little girl is. In this case, posing was all her. 😀

Both big brothers had their portraits taken next.

Look at his smile and ruffled hair. *swoon*

My own three kids rarely, if ever, let me take a nice photo of them where they’re all looking and not being super silly. So I was so happy I was able to capture this portrait and I hope their momma is too!

 

I love this one.

What better way to end the session than with a dance party? This was the one time it was okay to jump on the bed. 😀
