Why In-Home Sessions ROCK, by Ashley Hamm

I have been lucky enough to have snapped these little ones for 3 years now and each session is more and more fun. It was December when we decided to avoid trying to make the outdoors work and went for an in-home session. I love in-home sessions, as I love to capture little ones in their childhood rooms with their favorite toys or posters just spending time with each other! I feel as though, sometimes, parents shy away from in-home sessions as they feel their home isn’t “Pinterest worthy.” Home is where the heart is, and it is decorated with your family’s beauty, personality, and colors all its own. Although you might not have the home you see in magazines, there may come a day when you look back and wish you had a photo of you all together in your kitchen making cookies or in your bedroom snuggling together on a rainy day.

Camera: Nikon D750
