I have been dyinggg to share this Fayetteville empty-home family photo session with you.
About a month ago, I received an Instagram message from Abby asking if I’d ever shot an empty-home session. It was a unique request and I was really intrigued. Right before we moved to North Carolina in March, I remember taking one last picture of us in our empty apartment. And while we could NOT wait to move into our new home, it was also a bittersweet moment. We were reminiscing our time in Virginia and leaving the place we’d called home for the last three years. Other than those few photos, though, I’d never had the opportunity to shoot an empty-home session.
We chatted more about the important part our homes play throughout all of our life seasons. About how our homes are the core of family life. You see, we may leave during the day, but home is the place you return to, where so much of our lives takes place. Think of the milestones we reach, the traditions we build, the moments we witness, all things that are super important to document. Especially because homes change as our life seasons change – and even more so when you’re a military family!
Abby wanted to capture her and her little family in their home one last time before they embarked on their newest adventure out of state. And their session was so fun, a celebration of their current life season coming to a close and the beginning of a new one. I hope you’ll enjoy these as much as I do.
I think we need to make empty-house sessions a thing! Are ya with me? If there’s a move in your future, drop me a note! I would love to help you create a visual legacy to document your home and your changing life seasons!
Not moving but interested in an in-home session? I’ve got a few blog posts for you! Check these out:
