your family or couple shoot

Let's talk about something special: family photoshoots at home. As a family and lifestyle photographer, I've found that there's something truly magical about capturing moments right where you live, love, and laugh together. Here's why your home is the ultimate location for those priceless family memories.

why your home is the perfect place for a family shoot

Picture this: you're all cozied up on the couch, maybe with a mug of cocoa or a bowl of popcorn. Everyone's relaxed, everyone's themselves. That's the beauty of shooting at home – there's no need to put on an act or worry about unfamiliar surroundings. It's just you, being you.
From the soft lighting in your living room to the warmth of your own blankets, every detail adds to the authenticity of your family's story.

Comfort and Authenticity

Personalized Backdrops

Your home tells your story, from the quirky knick-knacks on the shelves to the family photos lining the walls. There's no other place quite like it. So why not let those unique touches be the backdrop for your family portraits? It's like adding an extra layer of personality to every shot. Whether it's the colorful artwork your kids made or the cozy reading nook where you unwind together, every corner of your home holds memories waiting to be captured.

Emotional Connection

Have you ever looked at a photo and felt like you were right back in that moment? That's the power of home photoshoots. They capture not just smiles and poses, but real, genuine, heightened emotion. Because when you're surrounded by the people and things you love most, it's impossible not to feel it. From belly laughs in the kitchen to quiet moments of reflection in the backyard, every photo becomes a tangible reminder of the love and connection your family shares.

Let's face it – kids and pets can be unpredictable. But at home, they're in their element. Whether they're bouncing off the walls or curled up in a favorite spot, they're relaxed and happy. And that makes for some seriously adorable photos. Plus, being in familiar surroundings helps them feel at ease, making the whole experience more enjoyable for everyone.

Comfort for Everyone

Seasonal Fun and Flexibility

Whether it's building snowmen in the winter or splashing in the sprinklers in the summer, home photoshoots can capture the magic of every season. Plus, they're perfect for celebrating holidays and special occasions, without ever having to leave the comfort of home. With each changing season comes new opportunities for creativity and fun, creating a diverse collection of memories to cherish for years to come.

Incorporate Your Favorite Things

From beloved toys to treasured family heirlooms, your home is full of meaningful props and décor. So why not incorporate them into your photos? They add an extra layer of sentimentality and make your photos truly one-of-a-kind. Whether it's a vintage quilt passed down through generations or a beloved family pet, these personal touches make your photoshoot uniquely yours.

Now, I know what you might be thinking – what about the mess? It's true, life can be messy sometimes. But don't worry, I've got you covered. Before the shoot, we can tidy up a bit together, or we can work around any clutter. If you feel like your home is not that photogenic then rest assured, I'll find those nice spots for us. Remember, these photos are about capturing real life, not perfection. Plus, a little bit of mess adds authenticity to your photos. It tells the story of your family's everyday life, with all its quirks and charms. So relax, and let's focus on making memories – the tidying can wait!

So, next time you're thinking about family photos, consider letting me come to you. Together, we'll capture those everyday moments – the laughter, the love, the little things that make your family unique. Because when it comes down to it, there's really no place like home.

If you're ready to make some memories, just drop me a line. I can't wait to meet you and your family, right where you are.

love, Susanna

Find out more about my work

Hi, I'm Susanna, the woman behind the lens of Nord Stories. I don’t take photos for the gram, for people out there or for myself. I take pictures for you who is in the photo. If a million people say this photo of you is beautiful, it doesn’t count for anything if you who are in it don’t feel the same way.

My mission is to capture your life and the people who mean the most to you, and for you to love yourself in every photograph. When you think back over your life so far, what are your favourite memories? The milestones and birthdays or rather the people and that everyday magic? Perhaps it's the hours spent in the kitchen with your mom when you were little, or how you used to lay on the floor listening to music in your first own home. How you sipped coffee in the morning with your partner, reading the news and holding hands or how you make up crazy games with your kids on rainy days.

I want you to see that your everyday life has an incredible amount of beauty. No need to dress up for a portrait and fake your smiles. Your everyday is much more valuable than a posed image like that could ever be.
