The winter months are a perfect time for indoor home lifestyle sessions. It’s a little chilly outside and the weather can be unpredictable so scheduling an indoor shoot is a smart idea. I feel so lucky to be invited into a family’s home and document them in their comfort zone, doing the things they normally do as a family. So when this mama, who also happens to be a talented graphic designer, reached out for an at home session, I was thrilled! Not only was this family adorable and loving, but their home was comfortable and so beautifully designed. Dara sure has an eye for interior design and every room was so well curated. I seriously could have spent the whole time shooting details of all the vignettes, books, children’s toys, art, and antiques. You can check out some of Dara’s graphic design work here.
The beautiful and historic China Camp Park is only minutes away from where this lucky family lives. We scheduled our photo session in the early morning and the weather worked in our favor. It was such a treat to explore the old fishing village and find so many unique backdrops. Take a peek at some of my favorite photos from this outdoor session. (*I always love to sneak some photos of just mom and dad in every session)
