There is a certain beauty that shines through in a child at play that cannot be recreated during a traditional portrait session. It is in their own personal space, surrounded by their favorite toys that the child can feel truly comfortable.
In home photography sessions are my very favorite. They capture the ordinary details that sometimes get missed when you are in the midst of the day-to-day.
In this session I photographed A and V in their rooms with their favorite toys, and then each of them practicing their instruments.
A’s room was heavenly. I love that the image below not only captures the decor that is obviously a labor of love, but it also includes her newborn photo, her twin doll, and the stack of books that show her current interests.

We ended this part of the session with a quick, informal family portrait before we headed to the Pettit National Ice Center for some skating! (blog post will be updated with link soon!)
