PREPARING THE HOME
The 2 main areas i will photograph will be the living room and master bedroom.
Unless of course I notice you have another room of the house that would be perfect and more importantly if there is any other space that is important to you to capture, such as where you spend the most time with the family like the Kitchen, kids bedroom etc.
Please keep clutter to a minimum in these rooms as it can be distracting in the photos, but also aim to keep it authentic to your family.
LENGTH OF SESSION
My In Home portrait sessions usually last about an hour.
I do not use props during my sessions, however if you have something in mind please let me know. I love to use any sentimental items you have such as special toy or a book etc.
THE MASTER BEDROOM
I think it is nice to use whatever bed spread you use, however keep in mind that loud patterns and colours are very distracting in the images. A white bed spread usually looks best in most cases.
