"[…] You feel more comfortable with what you are used to do. […] What you normally do, is already perfect for an intimate photo shoot! You don't have to leave your comfort zone!"
An In–Home photo session is always a wonderful experience as a photographer. I know, many couples prefer a photo shoot outdoor in summer, but therefore also miss the advantages of an indoor shooting.
During an in-home photo session, for example, nobody is watching! And this is actually one of the most important points. When you photograph in public people tend to stare and watch your activities. When you are at home, nobody is watching and you can concentrate on yourself. Another advantages: You can listen to music, your closet for outfit-change is right next to you and you feel more comfortable with what you are used to do – whether it‘s cooking, snuggling in bed, playing guitar. What you normally do, is already perfect for an intimate photoshoot! You don‘t have to leave your comfort zone!
For this cozy indoor shooting, we started with listening to their favorite music and at some point they also sang along. After some time we jumped into their bed and I immediately saw that this place was their ultimate comfort zone and they completely slowed down. And this is why the feeling of safety is so important – it brings to light real intimacy and love, that actually would be too shy to appear at the surface. Thank you J & T for your trust and the good time!
