What a darling in-home family session this was! I met up with this sweet family on a Friday afternoon. Although it was the middle of winter for the session, I am so thankful that we live here in California so the weather was beautiful! So we got to take most of their family photos outside. When Amber first was searching for a Alameda family photographer I was thrilled to hear that she wanted to do their family photos at their home. I love in-home sessions, because they are so sweet and special!

Mama chose to wear a dress from my client wardrobe for their session. And she picked one of my personal favorites! The petite flowers of it were a great compliment for the blues and other soft hues her hubby and little guy wore too. Their sweet little french bulldog joined in on the photos too, which was extra special. 

I could just tell from their time together that this family is so special, kind, and fun! I loved how they just played and hung out with their little guy. These lifestyle type photos always end up being my favorites from sessions. They really give a great energy and are the sweetest memories to remember. I’ve booked more and home in-home sessions lately. I’ll just say that if you’re considering a session at your home you should definitely do it! It really is the perfect spot for your next family photos and the best part is that you don’t even have to put on shoes or drive anywhere! 😉
