One of this nicest parts of lifestyle photography is when a family opens their home to me and I have a chance to capture them in their own setting, amid the places and things that they love. Kids especially are more comfortable, and it shows in their demeanor and expressions. However, it can be challenging to walk into an unknown location and hope for the best with lighting and location. With this family, though, I had nothing to fear.
I never worry too much once I learn a couple got married at this location–of course it must be stunning! And when it’s not just their wedding location but also their home, there’s nothing left to do as the photographer but just sit back and watch the fun.
When families are comfortable in their own skin, magic appears in photos.
And it isn’t so much work to let the love show.
