I've had the blessing of photographing many, many families this fall and I have loved it! The other day, I wrangled up my own crazies for a few fall pictures. No outfit purchases...just dug through the drawers for anything that had fall colors. Now, here's the reality. The nice light was after naptime post school pick up. As much as I would like to say my children sailed into the park and tossed leaves with abandon, it's not true. There was: a grumpy boy who kept yelling for everyone's cheese, a five year old who had all his own ideas, a cold Tymen who had just been pulled from his cozy bed to get siblings at school. Everything aligning during photos is very, very rare. Usually we just need to play and have fun and then mummy needs to know when the time is up! But, as always, I am so glad we made the effort.
Give that Theo a stick or sword and he's happy...and someone inevitably gets injured!
And then...the little guy began to yell...and it was time to call it a day :).
