I think my greatest honor as a Wilmington, NC photographer, is to be invited into my clients’ homes. To be trusted in that sacred space to create memories for them to treasure for the rest of their lives. To document, in pictures, life as it is today.
This beautiful family invited me into their home to do just that. Their family currently includes two foster children. (Out of respect for their privacy, their faces will not appear online, but the family received an ample supply of pictures of these littles in their online gallery!) Knowing how quickly life can change is all the more reason to remember and treasure these moments!
I had SO much fun hanging out with these kids (and their parents, too)! As their momma often says, FULL hands FULL heart perfectly describes her life caring for and loving all these beautiful children!
I came to their house in Wilmington, NC on a warm, spring Sunday afternoon. I was just in time to catch all the family fun that happens after nap time. From game time to playing outside to baking cookies and jumping on beds, we didn’t miss a moment’s fun! And what a special treat to have Lily show off her newly-acquired skill of reading!
Before each in-home family lifestyle photography session, I sit down with my clients (usually over the phone). I ask them to think about specific milestones each child has recently achieved. We do our best to find a way to document those during our family lifestyle photography sessions, as well as any and all other things going on during that time! It’s important to me to capture the meaningful events that define this time period in my clients’ lives, and talking beforehand about the different things each child is interested in or working on really helps me understand how to approach the session.
