If you’re anything like my husband and me, the minute you have kids the photographs you take are all about the kids and very rarely about the two of you. So, when I take pictures of a family I often like to try to capture a quiet loving moment Mommy and Daddy. In this case, Mommy is Daddy’s number one girl, then comes big sister and then little sister.
It was so fun for me to hang out with this fun loving family. Not only because I get to see how big the kids have become, as I’ve had the honor of photographing them several times before. But also, because their family is all about girls which is quite a change for me, since my life is all about boys. I had fun watching the girls play, comb each other’s hair, draw… to be fair the did do a little running and jumping, but compared to my boys that was nothing. The difference in energy required parenting girls versus parenting boys is astounding. Sometimes, I’m just tired looking at my boys, but then again, I wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world.
By the way, did I mention, they are both talented architects. One of my all time favorite newborn shoots was when I got to photograph the arrival of their second daughter on the construction site of their future dream home in Venice Beach. That was super cool!
