I can’t even begin to explain to you the joy I feel when children do super strange stuff. It is hands down my favorite thing to photograph.

Cut to my session with the Ward family - the first thing I see after getting out my gear is:

Yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss. This little girl munching on pancake batter like it’s going out of style.

It doesn’t get better than that.

You see, kids under a certain age really really don’t care. They just don’t. So whether you’re looking or not they’ll not only do stuff like this…

…they’ll do it as if it’s the most natural thing in the world. And there is no single better thing on the planet.

Now, any time someone tells me they have more than one kid, I’m absolutely amazed. I only have one and that’s work enough. But three kids all 3 years old or younger AND two dogs? That’s a recipe for an amazing documentary session, my friends.

Audrey and Rob handle it all with astonishing grace. They are truly incredible parents.



…and, as any parent of 3 children must be, they are excellent multi-taskers.

This session with the Ward family was an absolute dream. I cannot thank them enough for letting me take a peek into their world.
