This is a family of 5 kids!!! The mom to these very amazing five kids is a fairy godmother to all those who are lucky enough to know her.
Being a photographer is a blessing and those who have it as a hobby often look to me with admiration. But like anything if you turn a hobby into a job it is exactly that – a job. Yes I get emotionally involved and I have a constant flow of creativity but to much of anything is never a good thing. Sometimes I just want numbers, logic, theory, analysis. So I had just come out of a very tough full month of newborns and all creative energy was spent. My desire to shoot was probably on a 2 out of 10 and I was in need of a weekend. All it took was two identical twins with golden blonde curls to come running out to greet me and my “shoot mood” hit an all time ten out of ten!! I last photographed these twins (now four) at their home when they were just a few days old.
We had decided to not use an outside location this year as it was cold and miserable and I was quite keen on photographing them in their own environment and documenting “life” at home. Photographing 3 small kids is usually a bit chaotic but these three … pure pleasure. To just hang around their house and just let them just be. To be there to capture everything they are and do at home was so special. One day they will move out and their first home will be no longer. To have record of that is special. Moms and Dads always want a beautiful beach, forest or river setting. Sometimes do just the obvious. Photograph them at home. I have a lot of blog posts to catch up on but had to do this one first. Photographing these twins as newborns and seeing them grow year after year has been such a journey. A little piece of my heart was left there that Sunday.
