Oh how I adore this family.
I’ve been photographing them for several years, and unbeknownst to me until after this shoot, I’ve even read a novel by the father! The mother is SO stylish and fun and someone I *definitely* want to be when I grow up. And the kids are hilarious, wild little boys that laugh and live with their entire bodies. I really do have the best job.
And, believe it or not, I have an internet share of the day for you! I know, it’s been awhile (since I’ve been using ALL of my free time gazing at my pretty backyard (and weeding) or learning more about making films), but anyway, here are some lies I’ve told my 3-year-old.
I can’t think of any out right lies I’ve told Ezra lately, but he does believe that since he grew inside of me I have a psychic connection to his brain and that’s how I always know when he’s lied or gotten into trouble. And I’m certainly not going to correct that idea! I hope this lasts until high school.
And speaking of Ezra, he’s had some real gems lately. Last night we were talking about how fast he’s growing up and that someday soon he’ll have his own house. I told him he could still come over and see me then, and I would probably still help him with his laundry. He told me that when we’re that old, he’ll invite me to his house for book club and he’ll feed me nothing but ice cream. Does he know me well or what?!?
Enjoy the family photos below. And please know that my fall calendar is filling up fast, and if you want photos like this for yourselves, let me know soon!
