Why I Love Indoor Sessions
It’s that time of year where my focus shifts to more indoor photo portrait sessions. I’m glad it does! Although the great outdoors makes for beautiful backdrops, there’s something special about photographing families in their homes. I am happy to share with you my top 4 reasons why I love indoor sessions.
- Comfortable setting. Kids (and adults) tend to act more at ease and relaxed in front of a camera when they’re in their own home. This safe space makes for the most personal sessions. I especially love it when kids share their favorite books with me or the whole family gets involved in an activity. (Playing a game, building with blocks, cooking, etc)
- Sessions are unaffected by weather. If there’s one thing we cannot control in life, it’s the weather! Although snowy backdrops are some of my favorites, uncontrollable wind or rain can put a damper on a session. So, with indoor portraits, we eliminate this stress completely. We can spend more energy on capturing great photos.
- Personalized backdrops. Featuring your home or favorite room in your photos can add a nice touch to any photo session. It freezes a moment in a space that you spend time in every day. Looking back on the photos, this backdrop could be the house your child grew up in or a way to remember the first home you lived in as a family.
- A variety of backdrops all in one place. If you can’t decide on one backdrop, indoor sessions are for you! Without having to travel far, you can change up backdrops by taking portraits in your favorite room. Perhaps your newborn baby’s room, or in front of a colorful rug.
