Some clients schedule sessions on a whim, or because they have an idea or a concept. Others have specific reasons for scheduling a portrait session, and in this family’s case, they had just planted roots in some new digs! Their big move to a new home was the perfect motivator for updated photos for the walls, and images for a new home announcement card for friends and family. So clever! A new home shoot can be done when you’ve moved your furniture and things inside, or when it’s empty, with lots of light coming through the windows! I’ve seen a few example on Pinterest where families also did a session of the home they were moving out of, since they had so many memories there. Often a first home is a sweet place to capture, since sometimes it’s where you bring babies home to, or it’s your first home you’ve purchased together.
I was more than happy to oblige and met up with these crew, and they were such a lovely family. The young men were so well behaved, handsome, and sweet, and really hammed it up for my camera! I had a great time. Mom specially requested shots that showcased the new home’s spacious yard and fun features, so we made sure to capture a few around all the areas of the home. I love the one of the boys together on the curb, and the one of the whole family in the yard.
Here are some highlights.
