So, it’s winter. Anyone who knows me personally knows winter is kind of my arch-nemesis. Yes it can be beautiful. Yes it can be fun. But I am desert creature and I love summer! (a Dune reference for all of my fellow nerds out there!)
So, all that being said 🙂 One thing I have begun to LOVE about winter is indoor Lifestyle Family Sessions! This was my most recent one! (Other than Ben’s cake smash!)
The nice thing about lifestyle family sessions is it is come as you are! If you like to get dressed up? Do it! If you want to wear sponge bob pj pants? Do it! It is all about capturing your family, your home and your LIFE. Right. Now. When Becky contacted me about Scarlett’s newborn portraits we wanted to include some ‘christmas-y’ family pictures too since she was here right before Christmas!!! But due to illness we had to wait a bit to schedule our session!! Big brother Owen was fantastic! He was everything an energetic new brother should be! We had fun chasing him, letting him play, eat a snack and letting him help choose where people should sit for pictures! 🙂 Lifestyle sessions are my favorite because they are a perfect mix of an ‘ideal pintrest shoot’ mixed with reality. So we get those sweet pictures that make you swoon… And we get the goofy real life pictures that will make sure you laugh when you look through them remembering just how ridiculous life can be sometimes 🙂 But even if life feels a bit ridiculous, you wouldn’t trade it for the world right? Right. 🙂 Big brothers want to help, they want to sit in baby seats, they want to play with trucks 🙂 Sometimes we have boogers or leftover jam on our faces. That’s life. And it is WORTH capturing 🙂 As are sweet tender moments just like this. So as we are in the middle of this COLD season 🙂 Let’s warm up together!!! Maybe we can schedule a session where we have a dance party or we bake cookies? Let me know what you’re thinking of doing and we can plan just how AWESOME it will be to capture it!
Here are a few others of my favorite lifestyle sessions I’ve done recently… and haven’t yet blogged. (I’ve been too busy hibernating 🙂 )
