Family In-Home Photo Session

In home photo sessions are ideal because it is more relaxed and you are in a space that inherently has a lot of meaning for the family. I loved doing this photo session with my neighbors, whose kids are arguably among the cutest they come. Every photo session has an interesting story or mishap, and this one was no exception. As I sat them down on patio furniture, I asked them to lean close together so their faces were touching. As the daughter leaned close to her dad, her hair pin hit his face and caused a deep gash. He went inside for 10 minutes to clean up the blood but couldn’t get it to stop bleeding. Finally, his wife went inside and helped him put on a bandaid – which I had to edit out of the subsequent of the pictures. We laugh about it now–and it didn’t negatively affect the pictures, but it goes to show that anything can happen in a photoshoot!

I was ringing a bell around my neck and for a split second, both dogs looked. It was perfect.
We were careful not to cut any faces in this shot.
