How to Plan an At Home Engagement Session

Having photos taken in your home is a beautiful reflection of the two of you just being you! It’s relaxed and chill and perfect if you’re a homebody! Your home is a meaningful and unique spot and great for any season. We can use different rooms in your home and capture the magic and beauty in the everyday. Also, an ideal time to include your fur babies! Taking photos at home makes for a calm environment, and you can even get cozy and snuggle in bed! I’ve put together some tips to help you plan a seamless photo session at home!

Watch the light in your home and even take a few photos so you’ll be able to remember what rooms were the brightest and when. These will be very helpful to me in deciding the best time of day for your session!

Do you two love reading together or snuggling by the fireplace? Is cooking and dancing in the kitchen one of your favorite activities together? Are lazy mornings together in bed your idea of a perfect day? Do you two enjoy an afternoon swim? Incorporating your daily routine and favorite ways to spend time together is what makes lifestyle sessions so personal!

Just because your session is at home doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself to professional hair and makeup! It’s important to feel your best anytime you’re in front of the camera, and photos are the perfect excuse to show yourself some self-care. I put the same care and attention into styling lifestyle sessions and helping you create a magazine-worthy look!

Don’t be afraid to stage your home a bit. It doesn’t keep it from being authentic at all! Is your favorite armchair in a room that doesn’t have the best light? Let’s move it into a well-lit space and get some cute photos of you sitting in your love’s lap! We may need to move a coffee table for extra space or move your bedroom throw pillows to your couch. If you love having fresh flowers in the house, pick up a bouquet to add a little color to the scene!

There are no limits to a home engagement session, and the photos will be a true reflection of you spending your life with your favorite person!
