IN HOME DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY

Our first home | Savannah, Ga| laurie schultz photography

Do you remember your first home?  Or maybe you are lucky enough to still be in your first home and have these moments captured too!  I love that this family really wanted their family session inside and around their very first home.  They have been making plans for the future but wanted to remember years from now where they started.  So much love goes into your first home that these sessions always make me feel so sentimental and I feel such a great responsibility to capture moments that will help transport you back to this very time and place years from now.  These sessions hold so much meaning to both my clients and to myself as a photographer, it is almost like we are creating a very special time capsule for your family.  

In home sessions are among my very favorite sessions.  Children are always so at ease inside their home, and love showing off all of their cool toys.  This little man was no exception, he welcomed me into his space and we had the most fun doing what he loves to do:  play baseball, cars, football, read, take a family walk.  Oh how precious age 2 is, so full of wonder and joy!  I hope this sweet boy will one day look back on these photos and see just how loved and treasured he is by his parents!  I also loved watching mom and dad interact with one another and just relax and enjoy a typical Saturday morning as a family.  

If you are interested in what an in home session would look like for you, I would love to chat with you!  You can contact me HERE.

6 months old! | Savannah, Ga | laurie schultz photography

This sweet baby is now 6 months old!  Do you remember when I did his newborn session?  My goodness, it is such a joy for me to be able to come back and photograph such sweet milestones in this little ones life.  My absolute favorite place to photograph is inside homes.  Why?  Well, so much of your life takes place inside your home...this is where I find children and parents most relaxed and at ease.  You just cannot create the same connections in any other setting.  

If you have been on the fence about having an in home family session, let me put you at ease.  Your home does not have to be decorated perfectly, or incredibly spacious, or even clean to capture beautiful and meaningful moments there.  Have you been following my  100 days of summer project?  Then you have seen my daily chaos/messy house, and I doubt that you've judged me for it (or maybe you have... haha, in which case please come help me!)  

Anyways, I will get off my soap box now.  Go grab a cup of coffee, and find a quiet corner or closet in your home to enjoy this beautiful in home family session.  You will quickly see why I love photographing in home.

where love abounds | laurie schultz photography, savannah ga

Home.  

An environment offering security and happiness.

A valued place regarded as a refuge or place of origin.

The place where something is discovered, founded, developed, or promoted; a source.  

To the center or heart of something; deeply

Aren't these beautiful definitions of home?

a tree house, castle, and barn | a family session | laurie schultz photography, bluffton sc

From the moment I stepped foot inside their home, I felt like family.  Actually, I think it would be accurate to say anyone who steps foot inside their home is treated like family.  

Mr + Mrs F are constantly opening their home to friends and family.
