Three boys under the age of 5 = AMAZING!
WOW - what an awesome session! I loved every single minute. I arrived at their beautiful home right around 1 p.m. and the two youngest were just waking up from their afternoon naps. Going into the session, mom and I chatted about the evening routine she would love documented. She mentioned bath time, story time and bed time were such a special part of their day so I knew an afternoon into evening session was what would be perfect for this family of five!
When I arrived - after the two youngest woke up and got themselves comfortable with me being there, the fishing gear came out as did the wagon and we were heading to the local watering hole to fish. And boy did the boys catch some fish - quite a few apiece actually. After that they played on the swings, splashed in the stream and drank from a super cute fountain by the ball fields. Once we got home, it was time to make some homemade pizza, play in the basement with dad, dinner was served and then out to the outdoor fire pit for s'mores. Once all the s'mores were devoured, it was time for a bath! Bath time was so much fun - I loved how the boys all hung out together and played with the bubbles. Once in their pj's, it was time to get just a little more energy out where dad tossed them all on the bed over, and over, and over.....and then it was off to bed for story time and lights out!
We thought all the boys were down for the night, until we heard little footsteps coming down the stairs and just as I was about to leave, my little buddy Andrew jumped into my arms and I got the biggest hug/snuggle from him. It absolutely completed the perfect session.
I am forever grateful for being able to capture the lives of families. I know life is crazy and busy, and it is such a wonderful feeling to know I am welcomed into homes and am trusted to capture the most genuine version of their family, just as they are! Day's like this make my "job" AMAZING! Thank you to the super sweet, fun, loving family from Mendham, New Jersey!
