Where We Are {Orange County Family Photographer}

What I love about this photo:Orange County Family Photographer | Christie Hobson

Obviously, the miracle that all three of my children are in a room together and there is no screaming, gnashing of teeth, or bloodshed.

The Smurfs vs. Barbie paint.  We let them choose the colors of their rooms when we moved in here, and it was a very resounding “BLUE” and “PINK”.

The cars “town” Nathan and Grace set up last night and begged to leave out so they could resume playing with it today.

The stuffed lion head lying in the boys room; the one our puppy ripped off yesterday and carried around triumphantly.

The frizzy bed head and everyone still in PJs at 11:00.

The mess.

Sometimes I have to snap out of the nit-picky-photographer-mode, slow down and dive back into being a mom who wants to make sure her kids are able to remember each stage.  For all it’s technical “flaws” I love that this photo says “This is exactly where we are right now.”

And I’m happy to be here.

When I grow up and have babies, I want to be a photographer like you. Ok, I might never have babies, but the photography of your own kiddos inspires me. 🙂

Love the pink and blue rooms! The photo has such an editorial magazine feel to it!

What a great image that tells a story. Love how they are all together in the girls room.
