smith family | smithsburg, md family session.

I love when families choose their homes for a shoot location. Certainly, it's not for everyone, maybe you don't have even a postage stamp of grass or rolling hills outside your kitchen window. If you're lucky, maybe you have a gorgeous stone and red barn at the start of your driveway with an endless sky behind it. And even if you don't, I'm a firm believer that wherever you call Home is where you are the most you and that's the you I want to see.

I love it because there's always a peace to a family when they're in the house they live in together, with the mail on the counter and a few baby toys strewn about. They're more at ease than they might be in off-site locations; maybe it's the knowledge that you can run back inside to change your shirt if you like and we don't miss anytime, or that there's no pressure to seek out a perfect spot because you already know there's one next to the swing set. I like that. I love the idea of Home, and I love that I was able to photograph the adorable Smith Family at their home this past weekend.

This session was extra special. Rebecca bid on the photography package I offered up for the Lillard Family Benefit Auction a few months ago, and I'm so glad she won it because I got to spend a blustery afternoon meeting her beautiful family and photographing them in their own (gorgeous!) home. It was a little chilly but you'd never know it - their adorable daughters braved the winds in their tiny dresses and the Smith men are nothing if not dapper, indeed.

Enjoy the sneak peak! Thank you for having me be a part of your lives for an hour on a Sunday morning. It was delightful.
