You probably know by now, but at-home couple sessions are among my absolute favourite types of sessions I offer. Mainly, because there’s just something about being at home and in your “safe place”, or “comfort zone” with your person that just simply changes the way my clients interact with me and, overall, makes for a super fun, personal and intimate gallery.
Now, your home doesn’t need to be considered Pinterest-worthy in order for your at-home session to look great, and there really isn’t a home too-small (my 1st at-home session was shot in a 650 sqft. home!!!), but there are some factors to put into play for making sure your home is the right fit, as well as certain things to think about after you’ve booked!
Here are 5 tips to follow before you book, or leading up to your at-home session!
You really don’t need to overthink things with these sessions. It’s very much a lifestyle session, so I essentially just come on over and hang out with you two… oh, and I bring my camera along. I come loaded with prompts and fun ideas to make it as personal as it can be!
Here’s what some of my clients have said in the past about their home-sessions:
“It felt like we had known you for years. In all our ridiculousness, we could just be us. I loved that smooching and canoodling was encouraged! We both wished we had done this sooner. It all felt so natural and we LOVED how we all just shot the shit and had a good time. You brought us closer together and made all of the little details the big things. You embraced our crazy fur-family and made them such a special part of the shoot. You were able to translate just hanging out and getting to know us as a couple into pure magic! This session was everything we could have imagined and more!”

“Kate is incredible! We just had Kate over for an in-home couples session and I am blown away. She is so personable and truly makes the session a breeze. My boyfriend wasn’t thrilled at the idea of a photo shoot and I can’t believe how nervous I got but Kate is so great that even my boyfriend had fun and I am so surprised at how comfortable she made us feel. The shoot flew by. Our session was fun, cozy, sexy & steamy all in one! Truly the best of all worlds. I highly recommend Kate Kozar for ANY photography needs! Best decision ever.”
– Madi & Justin
“Just had an amazing couples boudoir session with Kate!! The perfect combination of professional and fun and I don’t think we could have felt more comfortable with her. This girl knows what she is doing and I highly recommend getting in with her while you can! Loved our session with you girl and we are so so so excited to see the rest of the photos. We are DYING over the ones we have already seen. Thank you SO much!”
