There is nothing better than a laid back In Home Family Photo Shoot. These kind of sessions offer an easy atmosphere for everyone to look, feel, and act like their authentic, unique selves. And this is what makes the best memories.
The Howells were having a pretty intense, yet magical day. They were on vacation in Italy and had just spent the morning hanging out on a lovely beach with an entire gaggle of photographers.
Now as lovely as the beach sounds it was not nearly as magical as what happened when everyone relaxed and went to the Villa for a more relaxed, fun spirited time.
The girls were excited to show off and play at the house after spending a good bit of the early afternoon exploring the beach. And mom and dad were ready to calm down and have a more intimate relaxed time together.
Once inside everyone settled and got comfortable in their new surroundings. Little conversations happened here and there and small moments that often go unnoticed unfolded.
“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”Robert Brault.
And soon after, since we were in Italy and there were sheets and linens hanging out to dry…
a game of cat and mouse broke out.
These are the moments that are cherished the most. The ones that when you look back through your thousands upon thousands of photos, make you feel something. Make you smile and recall a time in your life so vividly it brings tears to your eyes.
Capturing these stories of the present is so important for our future. To remember the way we lived and who were. To show our children what inspired us, and how we lived and loved deeply. Thus encouraging them to do the same.
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.Henry Thoreau
These times when children are small can be the hardest times for family. While we all know they are “the best days of our lives” the reward is often hard to see when you are living in it.
And this is why Documentary Photography is so important to me. Especially an In Home Family Photo Shoot. Nothing captures the unique and authentic story of family the way this type of photography session does.
Cherish these little moments in your life. Treasure your past with more than a million cell phone shots. Your story deserves more. Trust a photographer who can document your family as a whole, in the most special time of all. The Present.
