As Dan and Lili prepared to welcome their second son, I happily photographed a home family session for them, capturing a typical Saturday morning in their household, one of their last as a family of just three. There is something just so beautiful about photographing a family in their natural environment; not only are children happier and more relaxed in their own space, but adults are as well. It is so easy to see the imperfections in our homes – a wall that needs painting, chairs that are a temporary fix – but there is truly nothing more intimate and memorable than documenting and preserving life the way it is right now.
