I met the Dillingham family at their house one evening last fall to document their two boys, Ethan and Aiden, at home playing with their toys and being boys. I have to say, this is one of my favorite sessions ever. I basically was able to hang out with these boys (who happen to be two of the most polite and well behaved boys I’ve ever met) for two hours and photograph what they do on a daily basis. Their toys, how they interact with each other, running up the stairs, playing with their ipad in bed and pillow fights. The whole time I couldn’t help but to feel right at home, just like when I am photographing my own boys.
I think everyone should do a lifestyle session at least once. In 20 years when your children are not children anymore these are the photos you are going to look back on. This is what you are going to remember. The everyday normal:)
