When Erin messaged to say that they sold their house and were moving, my heart sank. My mind was racing… I’ve been this family’s photographer for over 3 years, capturing their moments from their first family photos in AZ with an infant, watching him grow, walk, become a big brother, little sister’s first 48 hours at the hospital, her newborn, baptism, & first year and all of the family moments in between (as you can see from their amazing photo wall)! They can’t be moving!! Then, in the next message, she let me know that they weren’t going far, just ready to take on a new adventure, still in the Chandler AZ area. I let out a sigh of relief, and we began planning a fun photography session to help the kids remember this home of theirs. In home sessions are always a blast with kids because I’m on their turf. They are comfortable to be themselves, play, laugh, and do whatever it is that makes them happy. And that’s exactly what we did with this family. Bounced on beds in bedrooms (and I photographed their special murals painted by their talented dad), read books in comfy chairs, played in the playroom, the kids showed me how they like to “cook” and then we ventured outside into the summery rain to splash in the pool and play on the playground. It was a really exciting way to capture the memories that they’ve had over the years in just one afternoon. After Erin & Nick viewed the proofs and selected their favorites that truly captured the feeling of love their family has for one another, I designed an 8×8 Storybook so that anytime the kids want to remember their rooms or their first home, they can pull the book off of the shelf and relive it!
