Kierstin and James opted to do an in home lifestyle session for their engagement photos, and I couldn’t love their decision more! This little family LOVES to stay in, snuggle up and watch movies together. So what could be better than a session that celebrates exactly that?
I was already excited for their session, but when I walked in the front door I was blown away by how lovely their home is! Beautiful light spills in from all directions. A stunning fireplace welcomes you as you enter – and with it being Christmas time it was lined with festive stockings. Tiny plastic farm animals can be spotted here and there, a trail left by James and Kierstin’s little guy, Hudson. Cows are his favorite in case you were wondering.
Kierstin and James opted for matching pajamas – something I feel every family should own. We made our way through out the various spaces in the downstairs of their home, stopping here and there to snack on popcorn and to play with Hudson as he warmed up to Zach and I. As I mentioned above, their home is their favorite place – but it’s also super special for another reason. James actually proposed to Kierstin on the front porch! How special is that? I had such a great time getting to know each of them and can’t wait for their wedding in April!
