One of my favorite things about photographing families is the opportunity I have to glean from other parents. The only thing I'm sure of is that there is not one "right" way to raise a child, there are many! I'm always learning and adding new ideas to my parenting strategy and style. For example, I arrived to this session to find Jean, the mommy to new baby Rowan, totally relaxed and in the middle of a feeding, while her 5 year old twins were having a blast with water, mud, and cars in the backyard. It was refreshing and inspiring to see her mothering from such a place of freedom and peace! One of my new goals is to make more opportunities for my kids to just be kids. I hope you enjoy her sweet family and the addition of their third boy!
