"The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh. Crying gives me a headache."
--Marjorie Pay Hinckley
Oh my goodness. I cannot even express how much I enjoyed my time that I had with this family. Before a photo session, I send out a questionnaire to get to know the family a little bit before actually photographing them, and when I saw the responses from Mom, I knew we were going to have a blast. I mean, who doesn't love Nerf gun wars and wrestling on the bed?
We started out playing on the bed, then moved to the master bedroom where Mom and Dad tossed the boys on their bed, and boy, there was so much laughter! Last of all, we headed downstairs to snuggle around the Christmas tree and read a book together. It is always amazing to watch a family with their traditions and see how they show love to each other and then to capture these memories for them to keep forever. I love witnessing all of it unfold. I love that no two families are alike, which means their stories and pictures aren't going to be the same. Each is unique and each has so much beauty. The ordinary truly becomes extraordinary. It is magical.
The day of was raining, but that doesn't stop picture taking in a home. I love that about in home lifestyle family sessions. It really doesn't matter what the weather is like-pictures can go on as usual. Enjoy these pictures! It really was as fun as it looks!
