I have been photographing this family for a few years, so when Christina called me and asked if we could do a session at her childhood home I was totally game. I love getting to photograph families in new locations, especially if that location means something to them. It makes the photo session just that much more special and meaningful.
I was excited when I arrived on location and saw just how adorable this house was too. It was the perfect backdrop for this session! I loved the architecture and the stone and wood details.
Christina had a few things in mind for their session at her childhood home. She asked me to take some photos with the front of the house in the background and also some photos on the bridge. The entrance into this home is a small bridge that leads you into the driveway. I am telling you that this is seriously the most adorable house in Greensburg!
The sun came out from behind the clouds at just the right moment as I was photographing them on the bridge. Aren't they totally perfect? I love it when the sun comes out to play during family photo sessions. It helps me create really unique memories for the family. I love how their shadows become a part of the portrait too!
The house had this little stone patio with a stone half wall that I thought would be perfect to take a few photos of just the kiddos after we were done on the bridge.
How totally adorable are these two? Their big, brown eyes are completely swoon worthy!
I know it seems like all of my photo sessions go smoothly and everyone is always cooperative and smiley. But let's be honest...that just isn't real life. Am I right? We all know that a session with an almost one-year-old and a three-year-old can't happen without a few tears.
Sometimes these crying photos are some of my favorites from a session. Their wrinkled up faces are just too adorable! And though these days may seem long, they are only this little for so long and they won't be making those wrinkled up crying faces forever. I just can't help but capture a few photos when they start to cry!
Of course those tears are never too much of a match for some Mommy snuggles!
I love capturing a few sweet moments with Mommy and her kiddos during a family photo session. Often times the moms are always the one behind the camera and we only have silly selfies with our kiddos. So I do my best to make sure that I grab some with just her and the kiddos.
I am so glad that Christina asked me to photograph her family at her childhood home this summer. We were able to create some really beautiful memories for them to look back on for a lifetime. If you have a special place that is meaningful to your family, I would love to photograph your family there. Contact me today and we can chat about your custom family photo session.
