Today I had so much fun doing family photos at home with the S family. If you have followed the blog for any length of time you will likely recognize this sweet family. I have had the honor of photographing them since big brother was just a tiny newborn.
Today we did their photo session right in their own backyard practicing all the necessary COVID safety precautions. ( i.e. mask, gloves, social distancing etc…) If you have not already be sure to head over to this page on my website and read all about how I am safely doing outdoor sessions during this crazy time.
Often times families feel like we need an extravagant location to make beautiful pictures but that is simply not the case. Family photos at home in your backyard are not only super convenient but can also be even more meaningful as well. Firstly, you do not need to travel, and that means no fighting with car seats or crabby kiddos. Secondly, because both the kids and parents alike are much more relaxed on their own turf. And you guessed it, relaxed families equal beautiful photos, which after all, is the ultimate goal right?
And speaking of beautiful photos, take a look at all the amazingness we created today. Even though we may have had a little help from the magic bubble machine. 😉 We captured some seriously special moments including big brother standing on his own. (If you’ve followed his story you’ll understand the significance of that.)
Mostly though the overall feeling in them is joy and love. I mean the last photo of S&G hugging literally melts me. I am sure it will have the same effect on their mama and hopefully be a photo they all treasure for years to come.
Here is a little sneak peek from our time together today.
