Cummings Family | Lifestyle Session at Home

They say your home is where your story begins. That’s why it’s one of my favorite places to do a family session. Oftentimes, the home is where your children are most comfortable, and it allows for candid shots that they may not want to do anywhere else. There is ample time for snuggles with mom and dad, laughter around the kitchen table, and reading stories and showing off beloved toys. This is the Cummings family: Sadie, Alex, Lucy, Ellie, and Liam. They are Southern Oregon natives, who love where they live, and wanted a family session that reflected their quiet life at home. Sadie is naturally gifted in decorating her home in an elegant and minimalist feel, so there was plenty of natural light and pretty white hues to make this shoot work. (Your home doesn’t have to have large picture windows or all-white decor to have a beautiful family session; I can work with any lighting and color palette you may need) The girls are so sweet and darling, and they truly love one another. Liam has tons of energy and enjoyed showing me all his trucks and cars!

To schedule a family in-home session, all you have to do is contact me. We can choose any time of day that suits you best, and you can decide how you’d like me to document your family. Whether you want to bake cookies together or read books, I love making it a comfortable and enjoyable experience for all the members of the family, and as a mom myself, I know how to roll with the punches when it comes to tiny ones! These shoots are meant to capture your family as they are, and the memories that you will cherish for years and years to come are central to the session. There is always time to dance a little bit in the living room, or jump on the bed in a true lifestyle session. If you have questions about the process or what a lifestyle session may look like, you can reach out to me HERE.

Thank you, Sadie and Alex, for allowing me into your home to share your story!

This was one of my favorite newborn sessions.  I adore this mom and loved chatting with her about all the things to expect with baby number two.   It was my first newborn shoot with another sibling, which if you have done a newborn session or have had your own done they can be quite stressful and time consuming.  Making sure baby is fed and happy and everyone is calm and quite.  When you add in a toddler things can get kind of crazy but this session was a breeze.  I chatted with the mom about everything because I was about to be in her shoes so I loved seeing the new family dynamic of the second baby.   Margaux her daughter was so fun, she was a perfect bubbly little girl who wanted to hold her "baby" and be close.   Thank you Ashley and Chris for the little glimpse into your family and congratulations on your beautiful babes!

This session was also featured on Let the Kids a few weeks ago!
