A Winter Weekend Morning with Ashley & Rainier

February 8, 2019

Okay... I'm gonna get real here for a moment. This session has, by far, been one of my all time favorites. And it's set a new bar for how I'd really like to see my in-home sessions going in the future. No joke. 

 

A few months before we did their session, I had come across a photo on Ashley's IG of her living room. As you can see from these shots, It's beautiful, eclectic, filled with gorgeous natural light. I reached out to Ashley about doing an in-home session for them and we planned a few activities for her and her son Rainier to do. Ashley had mentioned these cute Rae Dunn mugs she had seen at Marshall's and how perfect they'd be for her and Rainier. So we picked up the cutest pair: Big and Small. I DIE. (also, I may or may not have picked up the Hubby and Wifey set for Andrew and I to use when we do a post-elopement couples session the day after our ceremony in September!)

 

So we had a morning of record playing, hot cocoa making, gift wrapping, and overall sweet mama-son moments just before Christmas. We even got Rainier to finally write his letter to Santa. *swoon* 

 

Seriously... I really want to document these kinds of special rituals that make your family unique and special. Reach out to me if you're interested in booking an in-home session this year!
