Central Coast Family Photography
It was a blustery winter’s day when I went to the Cross family home for their family photography session. We had planned on being outdoors so their preschooler could be running around, the dog could roam free and we would have lots of options for different backdrops. As it turned out the weather was foul. It was freezing, the wind was howling and the rain kept coming and going. Taryn was a little worried about holding the session in her home - they had renovated part of the house (but not all of it) and weren’t sure if there would be enough variety for photos. I reassured her, even if all they did was snuggle on the couch, we would be able to capture a beautiful gallery of images. Of course with a preschooler in the home, there’s not much chance they’ll sit still for an hour. Taryn made the decision to hold the session in her home - best decision ever!!
Their home was so warm and cosy when I walked in, they were gathered in the living room by the warm fireplace. Her preschooler, Olivia, was happily playing with her favourite toys, so my arrival didn’t disrupt from her game. Baby Lucy was happy on the rug with dad. Everyone was relaxed and warm, doing their own thing.
As was expected, it wasn’t long before Olivia wanted to show me around her home. I got to meet her favourite soft toys, see her Elsa bed, check out the pink bathroom (very 80’s and so cool!) and look at the special corner her mum had arranged so the girls could sit quietly together and read. The girls had a snuggle in the cot together and then a rumble on mum and dad’s bed. Who said there wasn’t much to do during an in-home family photography session?!
