Home with the Griffith Family

Emily and I met at the gym where I soon found out she was a photographer herself!  For awhile now we had been planning to exchanges service and take photos of each others families... that was 1 kid ago and now we both have two!  My how time flies!

Emily recently told me they are moving back to Minnesota... it's bittersweet for them because they love living in Maine and have found an awesome community of friends that feel like family!  

We both wanted an in-home session that wasn't full of expectations, and I thought it'd be nice to take some shots in the spots that meant the most to them... since it was the home they brought their babies home in.  

She also apologized for having such a clean home (what?!), since they had been showing it all week, it looked brand new and like nobody lived it... I told her she can come to my house anytime and decorate it, it was full of beautiful memories and after this session, many more!

You don't need stuff, or a clean or even a messy house to define what a home is, you just need the people you love in it!
