This momma's priority was a great family photo and by golly I think we got it!
As I was taking photos of this crew and listening to mom and grandfather direct/correct the kids I thought to myself, "huh, that sounds just like me." Or at least what I think I sound like. My sister won't talk to me on the phone when my kids are home or awake because I'm so scattered and have sudden outbursts. It was refreshing to hear someone else sound like me. You know what, it didn't even sound bad. I always thought I did. It just sounded like an adult doing what they are supposed to do with their children. It was great!
Momma wanted this boy to show his teeth when he smiled, but he flat out refused. I just want to say to her that I think this is an EXCELLENT photo of her 3 little loves. I hope to get one of my six like this soon. I'll take smirks and looking at the camera in a heart beat. :)
I love family dynamics! Since I took a few courses in college I've always been fascinated. Once I had my own kids I found I started to do my job as a Certified Child Life Specialist a bit better. I mentally pick my family dynamics apart all the time. It is so super interesting. In turn, this helps me help other families during some of the most stressful times of their lives. I love getting to see the dynamics in my photography clients! Maybe that's why I love family photography so much.
I don't think I can ever say enough how amazing grandparents are.
