Oxford, MA Photographers – Often I post about session locations and it occurred to me in a recent post that I’d like to highlight a special location: your own home. I’m a strong believer of making your photos feel real. Feel like an extension of your personality. What better way to reflect your relationship or family than by doing a home session?

Here are a few reasons to consider a home session:

#1 – It’s appropriate for many types of sessions

Newborns, families, engagements, day-after sessions. As long as your house has space and reasonably good lighting, it’s a good location for most sessions. Most houses/apartments have usable spaces inside and out. Even Senior sessions might be okay, but I would consider doing at least part of them somewhere else. Sometimes your own backyard is more interesting than any park you could find and it’s special.

#2 – It’s super personal space

As I’ve mentioned a few times now, your living space is extremely personal to you. For photographing small children, taking them out of their element and sticking a camera in their face can be a bit much for them. Allowing them to be in their own home or backyard adds that comfort back in and they will be more relaxed when the stranger with a camera comes along.

In the same way, an in-home engagement session can be an easy way to add a intimate and romantic look to your photos. This home that you’ve created together is just another piece in the life you’re putting together.

#3 – It lends itself to more lifestyle photos

It tends to automatically be more in the moment and spontaneous a feel to the session. You can still take some more traditional poses, but you can also get away with more of a lifestyle look. This also gives your photos the idea that this is a glimpse of the life you’re celebrating.
