This was a particularly cozy and lovely in-home Family Session in Oakland, CA with three special people. While I had documented Mama and son twice before, this was our first time in-home with an extra special add on! What a treat it was to see the love here. He fell right into the groove, and added a kind and lovely new dimension to the session.
We began in the main bedroom where the filtered light created a soft and moody energy. The little one jumped on the bed, snuggled up, and got cozy with his family. I’m pretty sure jumping on the bed is one of the most joyous activities for littles. It is always a welcome opportunity to document those sweet, giddy smiles.
We then went outside and caught some quick captures of their favorite space… the backyard! Let me tell you- their vibrancy and connection here was palpable. It was obvious that this is where they spend a LOT of time, energy, and love. Thank goodness for this beautiful space to continue documenting!
Filled with vegetables normally, the little one showed me his favorite plants… in between being tickled and thrown into the air, of course! We ended the session with some focus on the lovebirds. Their connection radiated authenticity, depth, and gratitude. The little seemed to think so too, and the connection between all three of them was icing on the cake!
