I have had a very hard time in the past shooting indoors. And because of this I usually avoid indoor requests like the plague. But this family has been supporting me since I moved to our new town so how could I say no? Did I stress out about it a ton before the session? Yes. Did I bring along my huge strobe? Yes. Did everything turn out okay? Yes.
It was so fun to be in their space and see the little ones running around in their natural habitat. I was accosted with Cars facts by the 3-year old boy, which my son is obsessed with as well, so I felt well equipped for the conversation. I was told my belly was “really really big” being 26 weeks pregnant and I got licked clean by their little fluffy pup.
We started in her room and ended in the dining room for cake, there were outfit changes and there was a family chair that has been in the family for decades. I loved every second of it all and actually got some great shots considering I was inside and didn’t use any supporting light.
