Barnett Family Lifestyle Session + film| Paducah, KY Photographer / by Emily Margaret

Photos have more meaning when they're with the people you love most in the places where you live the everyday moments of your lives. That's why in-home lifestyle sessions have come to be my favorite kind of shoot, with their natural + relaxed feel. They're not flashy or fake, but simple and honest. They're about celebrating the small, real moments that make up your life.

I recently got together with my friend, Amber, and her beautiful little family to do a lifestyle session at their home. We started out the afternoon with a little tea party in the yard, complete with strawberries and sugar cubes, before having a bit of story time then ending with some family snuggles inside the house. 

I also did something a little new and different during this shoot- a session film. I'm so happy with how it turned out and I'm so excited to offer these films as an add-on for any of my photography collections. (Click here to book your own!)
