Chicago Family Lifestyle Session | In Home Session | Ipsento 606 | Chicago Family Photographers | Heather Hackney Photography

The most special part of my job is meeting new families.  I love hearing stories of how they met,  what they love most about where they live (and sometimes even what they love most about each other) and watching them interact and love on their children.

There is so much warmth to in home sessions.  An instant comfort to them.  I love to sit back and capture families in their natural environment.  Capturing them connect, encouraging them to hold each other close, and documenting their love for one another.  

We started this session with some posed portraits and then continued on to some lifestyle images. I love mixing in both, and I have a very simple studio set up that I bring along with me to make this happen all in the comfort of your home.

Ending our session in their favorite coffee shop, Ipsento 606 was a dream.  I've always wanted to have a session like this,  and I love that it is a spot so special to mom as she visited almost daily during her maternity leave.  The atmosphere was beautiful, the coffee smelled terrific (Nutella expresso anyone?)  and the donuts.  Oh my the donuts.  I will certainly be back before the year is done.  

It's been an amazing year and thank you to all of the families I have captured for welcoming me into your lives.

Cheers to documenting your days.
