Your Home

Photographing in your home is not just about setting, but about preserving the memories of where your family lives right now. Our best shots will come from clutter-free backgrounds full of natural light. Families piled on beds and children in their room are some of my favorite and make the best storytelling photographs. If your home lacks a good natural light area, let's choose a brighter location.
