At Home Session

At Home Family Session | Hamilton Family Photographer | Moments -by Lauren

It’s Family Day, so it’s only appropriate that I share a recent Family Session here on the blog, and when we’re chatting location, this is totally one of my all time faves!

The Sung Family is currently in the process of building their dream home and it was at the perfect stage for us to sneak in for half an hour and update their family portraits! I love that not only are the empty walls and unfinished flooring a perfect neutral backdrop for the images, but will totally bring this crew back to this stage in their life when they look at these images years from now. Especially since Briant (their little guy) will never remember it this way.

Take a scroll through, and let me know what you think of the location — a little twist on the typical at home session!

Hope you all get to enjoy a bit of time with your favourite people today!!

Ali + Jake | At Home Engagement Session | Moments –by Lauren

Ok, so before we get into how amazing Ali + Jake are, I want to let you in on a quick secret. Neither of them were super gung-ho on an engagement session when we first started chatting about their wedding photography… which is totally fine.

Similar to every couple that says that exact thing, I convinced them it was a good idea and they both came around – and were even up for a winter session (bonus!). So we waited for some snow and finally were all set – except for the fact that the snow melted through the afternoon on the day of the session. Seriously…

Lucky for us, we were already planning on shooting a part of the session in Ali + Jake’s new home so after I got there and basically wanted to move in – we spent most of the time just hanging out in their awesome space. I seriously can’t tell you how much I love these two and their ability to just go with the flow.

If I’m being honest, it’s quite the (incredible) jump going from not really wanting to be in front of the camera to letting your photographer stand a foot above you while you’re cuddled up in bed. But boy am I thankful. These adorably fun frames are some of my all time favourites, and I’m so excited to share them below!

Let me know what you think of the “at-home” vibe?? It’s quickly becoming one of my favourite places to shoot!

Liz + Mike | At Home Engagement Photographer | Moments –by Lauren

When I first heard from Liz + Mike, I remember thinking that the plans they had for their wedding day sounded pretty awesome (…their reception is being held at an art gallery)! We met, we hit it off, and they booked me in for their day (*happy dance*). When we got around to planning their engagement session and they suggested doing part of it “at home” and wanted to know my thoughts – I knew at that moment that these two were just doing things right. As I may have already mentioned, it’s totally been on my bucket list to shoot a fun and comfy at home session and I was SO pumped to check this off!

We cuddled up at their place before popping outside and strolling through the park across the street at sunset. The plan all along was to head back inside to cap off the session on their balcony and once you hit the last couple images you’ll see why.
