In-Home Family Session
What does this term mean?
It means exactly what the name suggests.
A photoshoot about you, which is taken in your own home :)
How long does a session like this take?
It depends on you entirely..
Usually it takes about 1,5 hours - this is enough time to capture wonderful and honest moments of your family life.
However, if you would like the moments of waking up in the morning, and some of cooking lunch together and going out for ice-cream captured in photos, then please ask for a personalized quote.
Does this mean that our home has to look like ones you see in magazines for this occasion?
No, it doesn’t.
Since these photos are taken for you and they will be most of all about the real you, you don’t have to live up to anyone’s expectations.
Just imagine that you will take out these albums before the wedding of your children - you will want to remember real stories, real emotions, smells and tastes.
As time passes, these everyday moments will become truly valuable for you.
But the kids will surely tip out boxes of LEGO (as well) during the session! Is this surely okay for you?
Yes, it is! :)
Does this mean that you will fill our home with flashlights and other lighting?
We work with natural light in almost every case.
We find this very important, as natural light can outline emotions most beautifully. Certainly, if one of the important spots of the house is really dark then we use complementary lights, but we will keep them on the camera so you won’t have to pay extra attention to it.
What should I wear for the photoshoot? How about the children? My husband will only put on an old T-shirt, no matter what I ask.
just simply put on whatever you feel best wearing and let the others do the same :)
Do we really not have to pose?
You don’t. Really :)
You will see that it would be impossible to arrange pictures as perfect as your family will spontaneously make.
What do you usually do if the children get sleepy while being photographed? Do you have some tricks to keep them awake?
No, we don’t have any.
We like sleeping children - they are quiet and way too cute :) Seriously speaking, the ritual of getting them to sleep and sound asleep children are so part of the everyday life.
They are a wonderful subject to capture and those photos will be gems in your album.
How should we prepare for the photoshoot then?
You don’t have to do anything extraordinary, honestly.
DO NOT start doing the big Christmas cleaning (if it was not scheduled anyway) and there is no need to visit your hairdresser or make-up artist or fashion designer.
However, we will talk a lot before the session so that we can get to know you better.
And of course, we will talk a lot during the photoshoot, too, in order for you and the children to be comfortable with us in your own home.
As photographers, we can be present in lots of situations carefully planned, beautifully set up.
Details of these can fascinate and inspire us and they give an opportunity to capture wonderful, stylish pictures.
However, there is a field of life that is all about raw energy, instincts and naked feelings.
This is the miracle of giving life and being born.
As a doula I know the course of birth from very close, all the physical and emotional changes that come with it.
And as a photographer, I believe there is no other event in life that is more honest, more unrepeatable than the arrival of a new baby.
Our 'Fresh 48' package is made exactly for capturing these precious moments.
