She contacted me and told me that her husband and her daughter share a birthday and she wanted to surprise him with a photo session at their home. She told me she loved how I captured real life. So she wanted some photos of daddy and daughter. A few of all of them just hanging out. Maybe playing in their yard. Maybe a few cupcakes. And then I suggested photographing them getting little miss ready for bed. She loved the idea and I was so excited to meet them.
I spent two hours with them and I loved this session so much. Even though real life came in the form of a double ear infection for little miss, mom and dad were so wonderful and sweet with her. I stood back and just snapped away as they interacted with one another. No posing. Just them. Hanging out. Playing in their yard. A few cupcakes. And then the bedtime routine. Melt my heart.
I couldn’t decide on 15 or so photos to highlight in a blog post, so instead I created the slideshow below set to a sweet little song. I wanted you to see the whole story of our time together. This is what I love to do. Real life. Story. I hope more families will realize how magical it is to capture real life in their own home. Thank you, M family, for inviting me into yours and allowing me to do just that.
