ok, maybe not the best, but definitely the most fun.
These will always make me smile. The kids had an amazing day and love thinking back on this day. It was actually kind of cold and that made everything more interesting. We had waited longer to take family photos that year because I was getting use to having a sweet baby and hadn’t gotten my feet under me just yet. Everything was taking me a little longer.
The kids were cool with the idea of taking family photos in our clothes, in the pool, they were use to my particular kind of crazy. We chose floats for each child, something we thought would fit their individual personalities. My friend and one of the first people I ever mentored in photography, Helen took the photos. We talked about what I wanted and how to pull it off. Moving floats and water, plus babies made it interesting. Helen and I have worked together on several projects and so it was pretty easy and fun to pull it off.
Whatever you do, however you spend your time, make sure that it is spent building something that matters. Laugh more, be silly and for goodness sake, don’t take yourself so seriously.
Look at those smiles. Best. Day. Ever.
