Aren't these beautiful definitions of home? This is why I LOVE to photograph in homes. It is a place where so many memories are made and are being made on a daily basis. It never fails, every time I enter a home the children are always so eager to greet me and show me around their place of refuge. Home is special, and I love that kids are always wanting me to experience their home in the same way that they experience it.
So as I entered the H family's home, I instantly felt welcomed and at home myself. Maybe because this is a family I have known for more than a decade, but mostly because Mom was folding laundry as I entered the home. I love her. This is exactly what I want all my at home sessions to feel like: real, stress free, and FUN! Oh and we had fun! As I was photographing the H family it became clear that love abounds here, laughter is contagious, and memories are made daily in this home.
