Here is how I met this awesome family …
It was the first day of pre-school for my oldest, five years ago. We all stood outside the classroom with our three and four year olds, donning their anxious expressions and backpacks that dragged at their ankles. Then I saw this mom with her twins. So cute! Except it wasn’t twins, because suddenly there was another boy tugging on her arm and wearing a similar shirt to his brother. Wow, triplets, that’s a busy mommy! And then my jaw dropped when I noticed a third little guy running circles and wearing the same telling shirt as his brothers … quadruplets; I want to take a nap after just typing the word. I was in awe. FOUR three year olds. And these were some really energetic three year olds, mind you. How does one do it all with four toddlers?!??! But this mama looked so calm and happy and excited for her little brood on their first day of pre-school.
And now, five years later, it’s the same story. This mom and dad were carefully selected to have these four, I am certain of it. Mom always has a happy smile on her face, and the patience of a saint. The crazy toddlers I saw running circles around her five years ago, are now amazing nine year olds … so polite, helpful, and a blast to be around. Mom and Dad … you’re doing it right.
I had so much fun with this family, it was a treat to get to photograph them. They haven’t had family pics done in over 5 years … way overdue. My favorite part of the session was, hands down, turning around while shooting the four kids and seeing the look of pure happiness and adoration on mom and dads faces.
Hope you love ‘em H. fam!
