I adore a documentary session in a family’s home. There is no better way to make kids feel completely comfortable in front of my camera. I love getting a personalized tour of their rooms and hearing all about their favorite toys. It was so sweet how this big sister was excited to show me the photos she’d taken herself. And little brother was equally happy to pretend to drive his truck into my lens. For kids who might take a bit longer to warm up to new people, I think this is even more of a benefit! It really gives them the opportunity to get to know me at their own pace, on their own turf.
Even though I love them, I know that not every family is ready for a 100% documentary session. I get it. So the sort of session that this family decided on, with some time to play at home, combined with a stroll through the neighborhood, can be a perfect compromise. It gives a taste of both documentary and lifestyle, and still gives the kids plenty of time to relax and just have fun.
These kids were so adorable with each other. Big sister was so sweet, giving her brother hugs and encouraging him throughout the shoot. The way they looked at each other just melted my heart and I loved being able to capture that. I hope you enjoy taking a peek into their lives as much as I enjoyed documenting it.
