5 Terrific Reasons to Consider an In-Home Family Session

Round Rock Family Photography by Karissa Michele PhotographyWhile I love a sunset session out in the beauty of nature, there is something extra special about having your family photos taken in your own home.  If you have never considered an in-home lifestyle family session, here are just five reasons for you to get as excited as I do about this type of session!

Reason #1: Convenience

You don’t have to go anywhere!  I will come to you and your entire session will take place in the familiarity and comfort of your own home. This is especially beneficial for your kids as they are most themselves in their own environment, and our goal, after all, is to capture the real, authentic them!  An added bonus?  No heat/cold, humidity, or pesky mosquitos to deal with indoors!

Reason #2: Authenticity

An in-home session is the most authentic picture of your family.  Do you love Saturday morning snuggles and making pancakes together?  Or do you love to crank up the music and have a dance party? Maybe you cuddle up on the couch and read together.  Maybe it’s something else. Whatever it is your family enjoys together, let’s capture it!

Reason #3: Clean house!

An in-home session helps your home look nicer! 😉  I don’t know about you, but it’s always good motivation for me to make sure my house is all picked up and clean whenever I know someone is coming over!  And then I can enjoy the blissful tranquility of having all of it that way all at the same time… until an hour later when toys have once again taken over.  But, hey, that is real life! In fact, when we prepare for your session, we will talk about the “good clutter” that actually adds to your family’s story. In fact, a perfect state of your home with all toys banned is definitely not the expectation or goal, so you can take a deep breath and relax a bit there. 🙂

Reason #4: Enjoyment

Your only responsibility during your in-home session is to simply enjoy your family!  That’s it. That’s what this is all about.  Soaking in your family and all the little moments you have together.  I will have gathered all the information I need from you long before your actual session, outfits will have been coordinated, and I will come ready with a plan for our time together- you don’t have to worry about planning a thing!  I am here to make the whole process as smooth and enjoyable as possible for your entire family.  And lastly…

Reason #5: Uniqueness

Finally, an in-home session is a completely one-of-a-kind session.  While all of my sessions, both in-home and outdoor, are completely customized based on each individual family and their needs, my in-home sessions are by far the most personal and unique.  It is your family. Your home. Right now. When you open your session album in ten years, it will be like stepping back in time through your front door right to this very moment and remembering exactly how you felt as you held and played with your sweet littles who aren’t so little anymore.  What better way and place to truly capture the essence of your family!
