Is My Home Photo-worthy?
Updated: Mar 26, 2019
This is probably the biggest concern I hear from people when their trying to decide whether an in-home photo session is right for them. Or, more likely, they immediately dismiss the idea because the thought of having a stranger come into their home that's floor hasn't seen a mop since their first born was crawling and PHOTOGRAPH it, is well, less than appealing at first thought. I touched on this idea a little in a previous entry, but thought it deserved elaboration.
The answer is yes. It is yes if you feel at home in your home, if it's where you come back to at the end of a tough day and spend time with your kids, if it's full of the ones you love, and it's a place that your kids are growing up in and feel safe in. If it's the place where your kids took their first steps in, or the place where they are going to take their first steps. If it's where you laugh and live and love. If it's a huge part of your everyday life, then it deserves to be documented, and you deserve to be documented within it.
I know you've seen pictures of these amazingly pristine and hip homes with seemingly perfect and pristine and cool people living inside and that will never be you so these sessions aren't for you. And maybe you are those people with that home. Fantastic. And if it's not, it doesn't mean it doesn't deserve documenting. If you have a window or a bed or a backyard or a comfy couch or a playroom or nursery floor or cozy kitchen, then these sessions are for you. I have a four and a six year old. I promise I'm not judging the state of your home. Tidy an area, a room, a couple rooms, keep it recognizable. That's really it. Photo ready.
During this session pictured above, we spent the entire time on the couch in the living room and in the playroom. They snuggled, danced, read books together, all requiring very little direction because nothing needed to be staged. Every time I look at these photos, I get such a feeling of warmth and coziness, sort of just feels like a Sunday morning. And man, if we can bottle up that feeling and keep it forever, I really think we should.
