The home is where the heart is. This is how I see backyard home sessions. They’re meaningful to so many for all the right reasons. In this case, the couple was celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. The home, although there may be multiple, is where they spent Christmases, had summer barbecues, and where they now enjoy spending time with their grand kids. Since it is our biggest comfort zone, these shoots are much slower and relaxed. For me, its important to go scout the location prior to the shoot, to plan the spots and keep in mind groupings. The younger members are usually the starting points for two reasons, they have the shortest attention span, meanwhile the adults can get familiar with my style of shooting and ease. This is what we managed to capture within the hour spent together. Enjoy!
