I offer several different options for family photography in Wilmington, NC but my favorite type of session is this – when I get the incredible privilege of being invited into a client’s home to document their time together as a family. And what better time of year to do this than for Christmas family pictures!
This family invited me into their home to share some Christmas festivities like baking cookies, reading Christmas stories, and decorating the Christmas tree. It was such fun to see the kids in their own environment, sharing pictures they had painted, favorite toys and stuffed animals, and favorite morning activities. And it was even more special to me to know I was photographing all these things so that in years to come these special moments could be enjoyed again and again.
As a mom, I know it’s easy to get so busy creating these beautiful holiday memories for your family to enjoy, but it’s also extremely important for your kids to be able to look back at those memories and see YOU enjoying those moments with them! If that means a camera on a tripod, great! If it means an iPhone timer, great! (I use both these options all the time!) – but if it means hiring a Wilmington, NC photographer to capture some of these memories with you in the picture, I’d be honored to be considered for the job!
Sometimes I think about why I love photography so much. If you were to boil it down to just one word, that word would be JOY. Family interactions and experiences bring great joy, and when those memories are documented in pictures, the joy can be relived again and again!
If Christmas is your favorite holiday (it’s my favorite, too!!) consider capturing some of these special family memories in photos. It’ll be one Christmas you will never forget!
