When Jen contacted me about setting up a session, I couldn't wait to hear all about her family . And then she told me about the kids - 4 year old Finn, 2 year old Addie, and 8 week old twins Fiona and Artie. My jaw hit the floor. Not because I had no idea how I was going to pull it off (totally true) but because I couldn't believe how Jen pulled it off. I figured she must be supermom.
When I showed up to their home last Sunday, it all made sense as soon as I walked in. She wasn't supermom, she was just mom. Super laid back, go with the flow, up for anything, whatever we could get, she was happy with mom. And it was so refreshing! It was great having the extra hands of dad Art and Aunt Laura, especially when it came to the singing, dancing, tricks, and of course bribery :)
Kids are just that, kids. They are unpredictable, fun, silly, sweet, and did I mention unpredictable? I went into this session hoping for the best, and what I got was more. No it is not all smiles, perfect chins up, and sleeping babies. But it's real, and a reflection of their daily lives. I don't think there's any better session out there.
Thank you Bryne Family for letting me spend your Sunday afternoon with you. I loved every minute!
