Home family sessions are the best. Families are not “perfect” and kids are just kids. I absolutely love when there are small children running around and everything is kind of a mess. They are wild and honest and that’s the special thing I want to document.

 This summer I was truly happy to photograph this beautiful family of five, just in an ordinary day at their house. I got there and started taking photos without telling them what to do or how to act to photograph them perfectly. Two little brothers were playing around just as they do every day, having fake tattoos and getting close with their new little brother while they also had some cereal.

 I honestly believe that family photos don’t have to be “perfect”. They just have to be real.

Thanks to Liz and Mau, you have a kick-ass family.
