The Lawson’s * In Home Family Lifestyle Portrait Session in Orlando *

The Lawson’s in home family lifestyle portrait session in Orlando is on the blog this rainy Tuesday! Molly and I met when I was living in Charleston after college, and both working in the wedding industry. Since then, we’ve both become strictly portrait photographers, and followed each other’s work along the way! Molly is such a talented friend, so I was SO pumped when she asked me to come back up to Charleston and take her family’s pictures.

Molly and her family were pretty much my ideal family lifestyle portrait clients because I just took pictures of them being their usual selves! Molly read her beautiful daughters Eloise & Bea a story, the girls jumped on their bed and played with their huge pup, they had a family dance party, and then everyone rode bikes in the street in front of their house! It was so much fun, and such an honor being able to capture a family just as they are – no posing, just capturing their genuine interactions and fun. They did such a good job of just playing and interacting like I wasn’t even there!

Then, we headed to a field in their neighborhood to take some portraits at golden hour. I did a little posing for these portraits, but honestly, not much! They just loved on each other well, and were excited about being together, which is why the portraits turned out so effortless and joyful! Basically, it was the perfect afternoon. And Molly and her family are beautiful, so that doesn’t hurt :)

Lifestyle family portrait sessions like these are my JAM. This is the niche of family photography that I would love to primarily shoot, so I’m working towards that. Pictures that are more about interactions, movement, activities, and genuine emotion. I’d love to take pictures of your family’s genuine personality, and capture things that happen behind the scenes with all of you!

Ashe & Ames * In Home Lifestyle Twin Newborn Session *

Get ready for two times the cuteness; Ashe & Ames in home lifestyle twin newborn session is below! This style of photography is so special for families with newborns. I much prefer in home portraits for newborns, as opposed to studio portraits, where they aren’t in their natural environment, but that’s just me! :) Even though, yes, the nursery is pretty perfect, and probably doesn’t stay this clean all the time, these pictures give us a glimpse into the Lawson’s family’s life – babies crying and needing pacifiers, the pets wanting attention, and mom and dad making hilarious faces at their babies, trying to understand why in the world they’re crying! That’s what I want my photography to capture. Not just the perfect portrait, but the real moments too.

The trick to getting soft, naturally lit portraits is lots and lots of window light. For indoor portraits like these, I make sure to shoot at a time of day where the sun won’t be streaming in directly from the side (like at sunset or at sunrise). We shot these around 10:00 in the morning. It was also so helpful that Caleb and Lauren’s home had a lot of white walls and ceilings; this makes it easy to shoot virtually anywhere in a room because the sun bounces off the white paint and reflects the loveliest, cleanest light on the subject. I also make sure to turn off any ambient lights in the room. There’s no need for the yellow-colored tint from a lightbulb to conflict with the natural light coming in from the windows. This saves me a lot of time in post too – way less editing time!

Ashe & Ames are incredibly blessed to have Caleb & Lauren as their parents. I loved watching my friends cuddle with and love on their sons. They are clearly so incredibly happy to be parents for the first time! Thank you Caleb & Lauren for inviting me into your home and letting me be part of the family for the day.

Lexi & Adam * Orlando Anniversary Session *

I am SO excited to share one of my favorite shoots I’ve ever been a part of – a crazy beautiful Orlando anniversary session! Lexi emailed me wanting pictures of her and her husband Adam for their one year anniversary. They had eloped the year before in a gorgeous garden ceremony in Miami, and now, a year later, they wanted some relaxed, informal pictures to have as keepsakes for their first year of marriage. What a great anniversary gift idea! It’s nice to do an anniversary session after the formality of the wedding day in a casual, unhurried atmosphere – you’re in more casual clothes, theres nothing pressing later in the day, and you know one another better.

As a photographer, it’s such a joy to photograph couples that are really in love and not afraid to show it and express it to one another. It also doesn’t hurt to have a golden sunset, open fields and woods as a backdrop, and two beautiful subjects!
