We love at-home documentary portraits! These are most common with newborn sessions, but often our engagement clients also love having some photos taken at home. Being in your own familiar spaces means you (& your family) will be more relaxed. Another benefit to an at-home portrait session with us is that since the primary location is indoors, we aren't limited by rainy weather. Our outdoor sessions are almost always rescheduled in the event of rain- in fact, we require a backup date for all outdoor sessions, just in case!
When we do documentary sessions in your home, we need at least 90 minutes, but typically 2-3 hours for all the real magic to occur. Since documentary sessions are all about the genuine in-between moments, the more time we spend in your space, the better the photos will be!
We are available for documentary family portraits at home in Charleston WV and beyond. Although most of our at home portrait sessions are in West Virginia, we've also traveled as far as Boston for a half-day documentary newborn session.
Here are some of our favorite photos we've taken in people's homes throughout the years.
