I'm a studio and lifestyle photographer specializing in maternity, newborn, kids, and family photography in and around the greater Pittsburgh area.
There are many advantages to at-home family photography sessions in the Greensburg area when the weather and other factors won’t allow for outdoor locations. Don’t let the cold Pennsylvania weather keep you from capturing this time with your family!
When done at home, your family is relaxed and at ease, which can result in effortless natural expressions and a wonderful family photo session.
These sessions are ideal for you if you and your loved ones enjoy spending time together doing activities like baking, reading, decorating cookies and cupcakes, and playing games in the comfort of your own home.
Lifestyle photography is a lovely way to commemorate significant events in your family’s life, as well as a great way to document everyday moments. A home session is an excellent way to keep things relaxed, genuine, and comfortable for the entire family.
At-home (or in-home) family photography sessions are informal family portraits taken at your home. They focus on capturing your family’s everyday life, activities, and interactions rather than posed portraits. Your photographer will work with you to make a fun plan for your family’s photo shoot. These family photos will also capture your beloved home, which plays a big role in your life story because it’s where you are raising your kids and creating memories with them.
Don’t worry about dressing up or having a perfectly clean house. Just wear what makes you feel comfortable. And don’t stress about your kids behaving perfectly. Let’s plan some fun family activities, like baking cookies, playing your favorite board games, or throwing a ball in the backyard. Just be yourselves, and I’ll take the pictures. Most of the time, I’ll be capturing candid moments with a few quick posed shots mixed in. That way, you can spend more time enjoying each other’s company and less time looking at the camera.
When you do a family photo session at home, you don’t have to worry about the hassle of traveling. No packing up supplies, loading the kids in the car, and trying to keep them happy, clean, and wrinkle-free during the drive.
We can schedule your session at a time that works best for you and your family. Whether it’s in the morning when you’re making breakfast together, or in the afternoon when you’re playing games, we can make it happen. And we don’t have to worry about the weather messing up our plans.
At home, your kids will feel more relaxed and comfortable, which makes it easier for me to capture their true personalities. They won’t be as shy and will warm up faster in their own safe space.
Including your pet in your in-home family portrait session is great because they are a beloved member of your family and play an important role in your daily lives. They bring joy, love, and companionship to your home, and you want to capture that special bond by including them in your family session!
Home is where the heart is, and doing your session at home allows us to capture all the connections and everyday moments that make your family unique. From cuddling on the couch to horseplaying between siblings, we can capture the subtle connective moments that make a family’s daily life special. And we can also include all the quirky traits of your family that make you who you are.
We can also capture the everyday details of your home, like your son’s favorite blankie or your daughter’s bead collection. These details may change over time, but having pictures of them will serve as a reminder of how things once were.
Home also has a laid-back vibe that makes it easy for everyone to relax and be themselves. No pressure, no expectations, just a chill atmosphere where you can unwind and spend quality time with your family. And the best part is, you don’t even have to wear shoes if you don’t want to (I won’t be!)
I love doing at-home family photography, and winter is the ideal season to plan these kinds of sessions in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. We won’t mind the cold because we’ll be hanging out and playing in your house! Let’s have a little chat, and set up your winter session!
