When I first started working as a photographer, the hardest part was actually not the lighting, camera, or anything technical - it was the idea of meeting someone for the first time and taking on the responsibility of making them feel and look comfortable, and delivering great images. So, to be invited into someone’s home to take photos is something I didn’t think I was capable of when I first started out. Now, it’s one of my favorite types of photography shoots. The images that come from an in-home session are the most authentic, personal, and memorable.
A little while ago I had the chance to visit Julie, Tyler, and William, who found me via client referral. We made a gingerbread house, played some games, and went for a walk. It was a wonderful morning, and here are some photos from the day.
