I have to admit I was a bit nervous about this shoot. With four kids all under the age of five on a rainy November day, how would I inspire some great portraits and capture some wonderful moments while confined inside?
Well, it turns out that I didn't need to be worried at all. With four kids all under the age of five on a rainy November day - even when confined inside - all I had to do was wait for the fun to happen and pray that I was fast enough with my camera to catch all the action.
What a terrific bunch of kids these are. Mom and Dad played lots of great music to get the kids dancing, singing and having a blast. We also jumped on the bed, had a snack and, when the stars aligned, managed to capture a few nice family portraits. It was crazy, but fun.
The entire time I was there I marvelled at Mom and Dad's energy and wondered what fueled them; what gave them the energy to parent four children with such love and enthusiasm? And just as I was leaving I got my answer... when all of the kids insisted on showering me in hugs and kisses before I could leave. Melt. My. Heart. It was wonderful!!
Thank you Jackie and Warren for inviting me into your home. I can't wait to work with your amazing family again.
