These sweet Long Beach Family Home Photos are a snap shot of the slow, fleeting, and intimate moments during your baby's first year. The unfiltered instances that would happen without me there; bath time, nap time, eating time. These moments happen every day but merge with time as the babies grow up and the routine changes. These intimate moments are fleeting. I want to help you document them. This sweet Long Beach family session focuses on food time and play, because it just happened to be that time of day.
WHAT TO WEAR TO YOUR FAMILY HOME PHOTOS:
Kailee is a realtor and we set this shoot to photograph both marketing photos for her AND family photos in between the gaps. So, her outfits will change throughout the session for that reason. In a home, or really anywhere, the biggest thing I can tell you about outfits is: COMPLIMENT YOUR ENVIRONMENT -- do not distract from it. Usually, the easiest and most efficient way to do this is to stick to neutrals! This isn't boring -- I SWEAR! You can do this by bringing different colors together, and by matching, complimenting, and coinciding with the surrounding area. This really makes a huge difference in helping the color scheme of the images be soft on the eyes and photograph better in general. Color examples include: Olive Green, Mustard Yellow, Beige, Khaki, Tan, White, Gray, Black, Cream, Nude, Mocha

BEST PLACES IN YOUR HOME:
The best places in your home to hold your family session depend on two variables! This long beach family home photos session followed this set of "rules". Let's break it down:
- NATURAL LIGHT
Natural light is my bread and butter. So, for in home sessions I'd suggest we do it a lot earlier than I'd suggest for an outdoor shoot. This is because it'll allow more light into your home. Aim for morning 10-11AM or mid day, 12-1PM. This session started at 10AM in early October, for reference. These times are arbitrary, it really depends on where your windows face. Most of your home will light up, but pay attention to the areas that will really do so and at what time... and then relay that info to me. 😉
- IMPORTANCE TO YOU
This family session has the best light in the kitchen and of course their backyard, so we spent most of our time in these two areas. But, Kailee really wanted some photos in the bedroom even though there isn't as much natural light in there, we made it happen because it meant something to them.
If there's a place in your home that matters a bunch to you, mention it! In home family photo sessions are specifically designed to document this time in your lives, the moments that matter most. So let's make sure we get them all for you. My favorite spots are the ones that contain the most intimate moments. These include the kitchen (a little cooking, maybe breakfast time?), the bathroom (bath tub time), the nursery, if it's a place that's still being used heavily, and some outside play.
