Did you know that I travel to homes too for lifestyle sessions? (but not if you have or had a cat in the home, because I will literally have to be taken to a hospital due to my severe allergies)
I first worked with this sweet couple for their maternity session at the park location. You can view those images by clicking here. I was so excited to head to their home in East Cobb and meet their son, Suman! Chitra wanted to schedule an in home session and include her mother in the photos as well, which I was more than happy to do. We chatted a bit about the best time for Suman during the day when he was well rested and happy, and settled on a date.
Suman is the most adorable little guy! He is the perfect mix of his parents and has such beautiful deep brown eyes. When I arrived at their home, I did a walk through to see what I had to work with, and decided to photograph in 2 of the rooms there as well as on the covered front porch. Each home is unique in terms of layout and lighting, and because I work with the available natural light, each session will look different, too. When we plan your in home lifestyle session, you’ll send over some phone shots of some rooms in your home at a couple of different times during the day. We’ll look at those and then determine the best time to schedule your session (and know ahead of time which rooms we’ll be photographing in)! The two rooms I chose had lots of windows and tons of light. We did spent a little time rearranging some things (mainly clearing off the coffee table and moving some toys) so they wouldn’t be distracting in the photos.
We started in the living room, and then headed upstairs to Suman’s adorable nursery. Lifestyle sessions are all about having fun together as a family. You will play, you’ll tickle, you’ll snuggle together. Suman really enjoyed playing peek a boo, and gave me some really big smiles. Chitra was shocked because Suman has stranger anxiety and she wasn’t sure how he would do with me.
I can’t wait to see him again and how much he’s grown in the fall when I photograph them next! In the meantime, enjoy a few of my favorite images from their session.
