Hello! Does it finally feel like fall here in Metro Detroit, or what? Leaves are changing, the air is getting crisp at night, and all I want is a warm cider mill donut (or 2, or 3, okay just give me the entire bag). October is almost synonymous with family photos here in Michigan, and I totally get it. It's a beautiful time of year, not to mention the perfect time to update your photos for holiday cards. Yeay Fall!
But, can we talk a little bit about the months that follow? You know...the next 6 months when many of us just want to hibernate indoors? Michigan winters can be brutal, but this doesn't mean that family photos have to be put on the back burner!! In fact, I absolutely love shooting family photos on-location, in clients' homes. Besides Michigan's uncooperative weather, there are several of other reasons why I love in-home family photography.
(Pssst....I'll be offering an awesome discount on in-home family sessions this winter! Make sure you read all the way to the end of this post to see how you can get in on the action.)
Where else are you more relaxed than when you are at home? I totally notice a difference when I show up for an in-home family session versus when I’m meeting a family at a park or other public location. Everyone just seems more at ease when they are at home, especially small children. In fact, they are usually excited to show me their room and their favorite toys. This allows me to connect with them much quicker and really capture their true personality.
