I had a blast shooting this at home session with Leslie and Jason. We met up at their adorable home for my first ever in-home session. In-home shoots capture so much of your story, the home you’ve built together, the life you’re living and the beautiful mundane moments of your everyday life. This session was so different from those outdoor adventurous shoots that are very popular right now. Don’t get me wrong… if you love the outdoors and mountains are your thing, then go somewhere scenic for your photos and pleeeeeease take me with you. Sessions like this capture your love story, the magic between the two of you, and your family legacy within the walls of your home.
Jefferson Bethke, is an author and speaker and he has a beautiful way to describe the home, so I’ll leave you with this today…“You spend more time in your home than anywhere else. Home is the subtle but most powerful teacher of your life. It’s where you learn to walk, talk, eat, cry, laugh, and love. Home is a powerful force on our lives whether we realize it or not. And for Alyssa and me, that means that home is sacred. Home is prayed over. Home is thought through intentionally. And most of all, home is fun and hopefully full of joy and grace. To us, the schools, and the church, and the other institutions exist to serve the home. Not the other way around. So we are always thinking about how to create a more loving, nurturing, joyful, caring, thoughtful, and intentional home. Because home means belonging, and nowhere do we more belong than in the embrace and love of Jesus, and home is our opportunity to show that to our kids by showing them what He’s done for us.”
