A few weeks ago my family had the pleasure of meeting Yehudis and having her photograph us in our home. We were immediately comfortable with Yehudis and my girls were happy to welcome her into their bedrooms and eager to show her their toys. As a mother of 4, Yehudis is relaxed and patient, knowing first hand how to work with young children. Yehudis had such a great way of interacting with my girls that made them feel like they weren’t even part of a photo shoot. They were simply having fun.
I absolutely love the way Yehudis’s photos tell the story of life as it really is. For example, the two images below were taken only a couple minutes apart. Toddler mood swings are very much a part of our lives these days! It’s photos like these that will help us remember all the details about our girls at these ages.
Clara and Mae had quite a bit of energy to burn, so we headed out to the backyard after taking photos in each of their bedrooms. Yehudis captured us playing together as a family, just as we would do on any regular day. We had a lot of fun – jumping on the trampoline, blowing bubbles, and playing on the swing set. There wasn’t any “say cheese” or posing going on at this photo shoot which made it feel very natural and easy for the girls.
After playing outside, Clara and Mae were ready for a snack so we went inside. Yehudis can even make snack time look beautiful! It’s these little everyday moments that I wouldn’t think to capture but now looking at them in photographs, I see how they tell such a sweet story about our life. That is the beauty of Yehudis’s in-home sessions. These details about my family couldn’t be captured if we were shooting at park or studio.
There were so many good photos from this shoot that I had trouble narrowing it down to just these for this post. Seriously, so many beautiful ones to choose from. I will be updating the frames around our house with lots of photos from this shoot. I am forever grateful that Yehudis captured this moment in time with my girls. They are growing up way too fast and having these photos to look back on with nostalgia will be something my family will enjoy for years to come.
