What the world needs is more dancing in the kitchen.

What the world needs is more dancing in the kitchen.

I saw that written in a meme recently and it spoke to me.  I love a good dance in the kitchen.  My husband...not so much, but he humors me.  To me, it's one of those things that reminds us to savor the mundane...those little moments at home that don't seem very grand, but really are the moments that matter, and that we cherish for years to come. 

Things change so quickly as we are raising little ones, and before you know it, some things that seemed so much a part of your daily life that you didn't even notice them, are suddenly gone. At my house, there is not a play room anymore.  There is no swing set in the back yard.  My children bathe themselves and read to themselves at bedtime. I don't remember the exact time when many of these changed, but gradually, they did change.  I look back to photos of when they were smaller and am so thankful that I have those momentos of days gone by.  

That is one thing I love about doing these home sessions for families. I look at these photos and imagine all the possibilities they hold in bringing back the past, years from now.

10 years from now, will they look at these photos and think about how that was the first year Coen played the violin, which he later grew to master and love?  Or will they remember it as that time Coen tried to violin, before he found what he really loved?

Will Coen and Peri look at these photos and fondly remember the photo of mom and dad's wedding day that was hanging over their bed for years?  Will they giggle about when Peri was obsessed with Fancy Nancy and the giant caterpillar and Coen (and Mommy) was obsessed with Harry Potter? 

Will they look around the kitchen and smile at the "Happy Fall" chalk sign, or remember the kitchen table that they shared so many meals on before it was traded in for something new?  

These are the things that can't be captured at a park.  

One advantage to home sessions, other than being able to capture memories in the place that you make the most memories, is that we don't have to worry about weather or sunlight.  My outdoor lifestyle sessions are all booked up for October & November, but I have been able to add some at home session dates to the November calendar for weekdays where the early sunset doesn't allow for outdoor sessions.  You can book one of these spots now on my calendar. These sessions would be a perfect time to decorate the Christmas tree, make some Gingerbread Houses, and just create beautiful memories of your family together capture forever by the camera.

So what do you think? Would you be up for an at home family session?
