At Home with the Thompson Family. Sioux Falls SD Family Lifestyle Photography. By Amie Hansen

We don't always need a plan sometimes we just need to breathe, trust, let go and see what happens. 

Trusting the process of what an in home family shoot is and just being together is the most important. Your life and home don't have to be perfect and trust me you may feel like you are awkward in photos but what i see in my camera is magic that is really happening. 

You may have the concerns of how can she make me look amazing or adorable and those are all normal concerns but remember, your images have everything to do with who's behind the lens. There are a million photographers to choose from, and each one has a different approach, a different way of seeing the world. That's why it is so important to find a photographer you love, whose work truly resonates with you. If you vibe well with your photographer, then you have nothing to worry about. 

I am here to create images that stir something within you. I want you to view your photographs not only with your eyes, but also with your heart. I promise i will not leave you hanging to figure out how to walk through a session with me, with my guidance and embracing joyful, loving connections and inner dork etc... that is when the true magic happens. 

The Thompson Family allowed me to come into their home and document their 6 month old baby fitz in a different way than doing the traditional 6 month milestone photo shoot, Sweet Kayla embraced the idea of documenting it with more of a lifestyle approach and being in the photos as a family. 

I truly feel like this approach will be more meaningful for Fitz when he is older to see the engagement his parents had with him, how happy and loving they were with him. So thankful for them trusting the process and letting go.
