Yesterday was one of those days where the kids were pushing each others buttons and all I could hear every couple of minutes was, “mommy!” So what did I do? I made the kids all go in the backyard to play so I could make dinner in peace. However, as I was standing by the stove, I looked out the window and saw beautiful evening light and smiles! I stopped making dinner (I know, bad mommy) and I grabbed my camera and joined the girls outside. My kids, like most kids nowadays are so attached to electronics but when they are unattached to the devices, they actually run around and play! I love seeing them creating obstacle courses in the yard and playing with bubbles. Even though none of the kids were dressed for a “portrait session” I love the few shots I got of them because they are being themselves. Yes, K is wearing my flip flops which are way too big for her and with a huge minecraft logo shirt (which I always advise against having distracting logos for portraits!) and A is wearing her pjs, and my grass is dead (California is in a drought!) but sometimes you gotta go with what you are presented with! This is home and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
