I’m so in love with the feel of the images from in-home sessions. You’re just so drawn in and can feel their love, comfort and emotion. I get so pumped when someone asks me to do one of these sessions and then the day of I kinda freak out! By kinda I mean have a mini breakdown. I get so nervous! But every time it all falls into place. It’s their most comfortable space they’re instantly at ease. We turn on 90’s music and the rest is history haha!

We had originally planned to start Ashley & Andy’s engagement session with a quick in-home session and then head out into the mountains back in October. But life played out different and we ran straight to the mountains and rain checked the in-home session. Finally this last weekend we got together in their home with their pup, Chloe and just goofed around for a little while. They cuddled on the couch, tackled each other in bed, snuggled their pup as the sun shined through the windows kissing everything. Andy plays piano and played for a while as Ashley wrapped around him. They’re both photographers and played with a new film camera Ashley recently got. Such sweet love, and you can feel it through the images without ever knowing them.

I’ve been playing with video a little and making short highlight love reels during sessions without couples even knowing haha. Video is such a different thing than photo but it’s so fun and seeing their love in photo is amazing but adding video with it is kinda magic. By no means any expert but so fun to be doing something more for couples! I made a short one for Ashley and Andy and added it to the end of the blog, so be sure to check it out!!!!

Can’t wait for these two to get married this fall! It’s gonna be AMAZING! Her dress you guys, just wait!

XOXO!

I’ve been wanting to do an in home portrait session for so long! So happy the first one was with my best friend, Amanda, and her man. We started talking about doing this a year ago. Maybe longer. I was wanting to do them and she was seeing photos of them on insta and wanting one. Her and Ryan were just starting the process of building a home so we decided to wait til their house was done. What a fun way to mark this time in their love story, just celebrating their first wedding anniversary and now their first home all brand new.

I’m obsessed with the idea of these. Preserving love as it really is. Ass grabs and quick kisses in the kitchen. Sneak attacks on the couch where someone always gets hurt. The ohmygosh-we-survived-today slide down the wall on the the hallway floor. And cuddling in your bed or any corner of the house you happen to be in that moment. They’re quick. They go by so fast. Photos always preserve that time in life but these are on another level. A more intimate approach. Almost as if I wasn’t supposed to be there. I believe so much in accepting love stories for what they are, they aren’t all rainbows, they’re the small moments and when we can we should celebrate them.

I know they’ll look back at these 50 years from now and relive their first home but also make comments of how cute and flirty they were while they squeeze each others hands and he’ll giggle and say he wishes even now 50 years later that he could pick her up and put her against the fridge 😉 And a few years from now their teenagers will be disgusted by them and these photos but 10 years later it’s the exact example of love they’ll be looking for.

This love in it’s raw, unbridled, exposed form. Damn it’s beautiful.

Amanda & Ryan thanks for trusting me on this and always letting me photograph your story. It’s a beautiful one to share 🙂

XOXO
