Family Lifestyle Session : A Day in the Life

Just a little heads up, this post has 62 images. Yeah, I know, that's absurd. It was at a cool 210, but I spent like an hour trying to narrow it down. So, 62 is were we landed. You're welcome:)

A week after Abe was born, my sweet friend Nicole of 314 Productions came over and shot a lifestyle session for us. Obviously, I love to have our life documented. I really wanted the first few days of Abe being home and how his siblings LOVE him captured. Nicole is specializing in lifestyle sessions at the moment. Bedtime routines, dinner routines, your day to day lives, no matter what your life looks like at the moment, you should have it captured! Time is TOO fleeting. I want my kids to have memories of all stages of life, even the mundane moments spent at home.

Nicole was like a fly on the wall. She shadowed my kids playing with their favorite toys, playing their favorite games (villian with daddy, freezing like elsa, and jumping off the coffee table) wearing their costumes (that they wear EVERY SINGLE DAY, willow actually has hers on as I type this), loving on Abraham, and wanting to be near us 24/7. Every image is just SO them.

I'm planning to have these images put into a coffee table book and captioning some of them so I can remember the little details like how willow constantly wants to take care of Abe or how Canaan sits in his spiderman pose way too often:)

Nicole, we love you! You know we can't say thank you enough for these images! If you are reading these, BOOK HER! Have her come and shadow your kids. You won't regret having these images today or in 20 years to look back on. Don't rely on just the iphone photos. Let her capture the moments that often go undocumented like bath time, or walks around the block, or popsicles in the backyard, or tucking them in at night... or my favorite, waking them up in the morning!

I'll let our images tell our story of our normal morning:)

 At the very end of the session, we did a very laid back "posed" session. I put that in quotes because it was as little posed as possible. We just climbed on the bed and cuddled up real tight and let the kids be them silly selves. This is what our mornings actually look like. As soon as the kids get up, they climb in our bed and ask to cuddle Abraham. We usually spend a good 30 minutes just playing and cuddling in our bed. I wanted photos that resembled these sweet memories for us. Doing these photos at the end allowed the kiddos to be super laid back with Nicole and the giggles came naturally.

 Goodness, these days are just the sweetest. Thank you Lord for blessing us with these three precious kiddos. We don't deserve them in the slightest. Children are SUCH a blessing from the Lord. These days at home with them are such a blessing from the Lord. His grace is abundant in the mundane days, and we are so thankful!
