“Meaning” in family photography is vast and incalculable, but there’s an extra layer when working in the home, and an entire new angle to consider with a home birth family. This little girl gets to grow and love and learn in the same place where she has been since the first second of her life, and lucky her for that place to be as filled with joy and deep connections as this home. It was such a pleasure for both of us to come inside and capture this moment in the ever-changing life of a curious, delightful toddler.
It was not just a genuine pleasure to document the daily life of this wonderful family, it was absolutely enlightening. She is such a wonderful and bright child, and we took away so much in our own parenting, from better ways to safely get down from the couch to weird and wonderful toys. It is always such a fantastic honor to photograph inside the home, where the little moments that make up the backbone of a family play out.
