I had the pleasure of joining Lauren, Jeff and Soleil in their Southern Oregon home, to welcome baby Elijah to the family. These intimate In-Home sessions are a favorite of mine, I find that families are relaxed and comfortable which means many real moments, laughter and even some tears. I will photograph everything, I don't mind tantrums or crying, in fact I love capturing these moments just as much as the happy ones. After all, this is real life, and it's all worth remembering.

The session flowed freely when I arrived, from playing to nursing, snuggling and more nursing, to making smoothies and playing outside. It was a fun and relaxed morning, capturing this sweet family's love for each other. 

 

                                                                                     Enjoy!
