A day in the life of the Houser’s {a family session}

I have been dying to do this home session for my good friend and photography buddy Nicole for a while now and yesterday I finally got the opportunity!

Back in October I photographed their whole family and had such a great time with them! As much fun as I have photographing families in beautiful locations like the beach or the park, there is just something inherently magical about a family’s home. The place where they eat, sleep and play. Where their memories are made. I know that my personal favorite photographs are the ones taken in my (messy and crazy) home. And I believe you don’t need a Pinterest-worthy bedroom or perfect light in every corner to have beautiful, meaningful images in the place you call home. All you need is a little light and a little love. This family has plenty of both.

Since Nicole’s husband is a baseball player he sometimes has to travel for the game, but he is clearly never far from his family’s thoughts. The boys both love baseball and their dad and luckily they have an awesome, strong and beautiful mama to hold down the fort when he’s away. Their days are filled with cars, crayons, bikes and laughter. Plus, from what the boys told me, Friday’s are movie night!:)

Enjoy this beautiful day in the life of the Houser family.
