We’d thought that April might have decent enough weather to do a session outside, but the weather’s been bananas all year. The particular weekend we were looking at was way too cold to take a baby out in, so I pitched the idea of doing an in-home session instead. I’m glad they were up for it, in part because I think getting photos in your home is great, and in part because their home is near a killer brunch place (Spoonwood Brewery, if you’re planning your own Bethel Park family session). I get to hang out with a cute baby AND get mimosas and breakfast pizza? Hell yeah.

I think it’s super interesting all the different ways that babies learn to crawl. For the longest time, our guy could only crawl backwards. Elena went with a swim maneuver.
