Our Life-Style Session with Brooke Schultz

Maybe you haven't noticed my obsession with pictures of my family. But I don't just want pictures. I want pictures that show off what our family is like. I want pictures in my home. Pictures of messy-faces, and tear-stained cheeks. Pictures of snuggles, and stories, and nothing at all in a studio - ever.
I've been drooling over Brooke's pictures for years, and a couple months ago, she introduced Family Life-Style Sessions. When her mini-sessions went on sale, I had to snatch one up.

And Brooke rocked this session.
You can't tell (at all), from her photos - but Grey was clingy and tantrumy, and Micah had the attention-span of about 5 seconds. He wanted to play with all of his toys, and he wanted to play ring around the rosie, and then he wanted to read half of a story, and then jump on my bed, and then eat a snack, and then... you get the idea. Brooke was only in our home for a half-hour, and in that short time, she captured so much. I feel like she quickly and perfectly understood the feeling that we try to cultivate in our home - and her pictures were aimed at bringing that feeling out.

I love these pictures so, so much. It's hard, being a mama - to get pictures of myself. Because when someone needs tickles, or snuggles, or help building a lego tower, I have to set down the camera and take care of my boys. And even though the moment is perfect, and maybe the light is golden, and we're all well-dressed - that picture never gets taken. So this entire photoshoot was a dream come true for me.
Be sure to look at more of the pictures from our session on Brooke's Blog {HERE.}

Yay to you for indulging and getting YOU in the pictures! I am the family photographer and have many many pictures of all the family members, except me. Which is OK, sort of. And sort of not.

I totally would if we had extra cash and decent lighting in our house... Both of which we do not have...sad.
