This session has to be one of my most fun times to date. My favorite thing to do is take my own family to the beach or to the forest and just let everyone explore. I follow along and photograph all the treasures the kids find or their expressions as they laugh and enjoy themselves. So when this momma gave me a call and described doing the exact same thing with her kids, I was overjoyed. We spent some time before the photo session exploring the unique personalities of each of her three kids. The most amazing thing was how different each of them are but how often we as parents don’t take the time to stop and see each of them as individuals. This doesn’t happen on purpose, we don’t mean to be so busy but we are all doing the best we can and sometimes daily life just gets away from us a bit. This mom is doing a fantastic job holding down the fort while her husband is deployed. Even more incredibly, she is homeschooling her children. Talk about superwoman! Taking the time to remember each of her kids as individuals and photograph them exactly as they are at this exact moment is another excellent way that she is showing her kids how loved they really are. Now her children get to see beautiful artwork of their love for each other every day on the walls of their home.
Look at these three beautiful, independent, and unique kiddos! The oldest is so smart and such a good leader of her younger siblings. The middle is sweet and kind, gentle with the baby but happy to climb a tree or search for bugs. The youngest is a little rascal, very sure of what she wants and not afraid to figure out how to get it. We had so much fun together.
