Home means different things for all of us, but one thing is certain, our hearts recognize it when we feel it.
I love when I see that in a family session. This is their home in Norfolk. This is where they feel comfortable and safe. They allow me to see them. And when I'm able to photograph them in this truly authentic way, the story takes on a life of its own.
The photos that tell your story are the ones that you will treasure in years to come.
You're going to want to remember how her hands looked clutching her lovey.
You're going to want to remember those tiny wisps of hair, baby fine, and how they felt like silk running through your fingers.
You're going to long to remember the days when it was so easy to hold her on your hip and you could feel the comfortable, safe weight of her little body holding onto you.
You're even going to want to remember how it looked when you changed her into a different dress and struggled to get shoes on her.
You may not think your backyard is the most beautiful or whimsical place to take photos, but I assure you, home is home. And to your family, home is just perfect. And what's breathtakingly beautiful about it is YOU. And to a toddler, it's filled with all of the things they love and are familiar with, yet has endless curiosities. It's filled with memories of make believe games and the adventures of imagination.
It feels like family. It feels like home.
