Behind the Scenes | Louisville Family Photographer

This month’s blog circle theme is Family.  I struggled with this one a little bit.  Not because I didn’t have anything to photograph, actually quite the opposite.  There are so many things to capture when I think of family.  The thing is, my family, those that are the most dear to me, don’t fit into a pretty little mold.  The beautiful outdoor posed pictures, that’s just not us.  I’m not talking about extended family, although that’s not perfect either, I’m talking about the  little ones that I’m struggling to raise daily.  We moved to the Louisville, Kentucky area right before our children were born so from the time they were newborn babies we were on our own.  We have amazing families who would do anything to help us, they just live anywhere from 500 to 2,000 miles away.  As a result, we have to figure it all out on our own.  There are no last minute babysitters to call, or Mom’s to help with sick little ones, or just a stressed out me; it’s just us and all of our crazy!

You know what?  It’s great.  I love every second of our “crazy” little world.  So to capture family this month, I thought I’d bring you a little bit of that out of the mold world that I live in.  This is my family, at least the little ones in it.

This is us. Just us.  No posing, no planning, just us, in all of our silly glory celebrating the little things in life like bath time, or shower time in this case.  🙂
