I love in home sessions.  Yes, Austin is an amazing city with tons of wonderful locations with character and color and texture to choose from.  Even so, there is still something about visiting a family in their space, where they live and love.  Where they have memories wrapped into every room, around every corner.  Where you brought your baby home to, where you became a family, where you paced the halls with a newborn and gushed over that first smile, crawl or first step.  There is just something so real and interesting about people at home that I love.  I’m not sure I could ever be a studio girl, I love seeing what makes people tick and I love using a space that belongs to them with them in it.

I’m going to post the photos from this session in the order that I shot them because I love the progression.  9 month olds are figuring things out, and true to fashion, it took Natalie a little bit to warm up and figure out I was a-ok….

Did you know that if you refer a client in 2010 that both you AND the person you refer get a free 16×20 mounted enlargement with the purchase of your package?  Tis true!  This beautiful family was referred by this beautiful family and they are both getting a 16×20 of their choice.  Totally free.  Just a reward for sending people my way because I appreciate it!  They chose this image as their enlargement, it just came in from the lab tonight and I love it!!
