Beach By the Lake

Beach On The Lake-10

 

It really shouldn’t amaze me that when we are outdoors and in the nature, I rarely find myself telling them ‘No!’ (‘No, keep your hands to yourself!’ ‘No, you can’t climb that!’ ‘No, stop hitting your brother’s bum!’)

Being outdoors stirs the imagination, brings out the adventurer and gives the space to get mucky, isn’t this the essence of childhood? These are my favorite moments to photograph…no need for direction, cues or any kind of posing!

Here’s a snippet of our littles (and bigs!) on the beach at the lake in Arkansas.

Family Trip To The Red River

photographing boys-1

Gotta love boys. We have three of them. Three.

As in The Three Amigos, The Three Musketeers, The Three Wise Men, The Three Little Pigs, The Three Stooges. Good things come in three! Let me break it down even further for you; that’s one more than the number of hands I have. Two (hundred) more than the number of coffees I should have,  0.6 more than the (previous) average number of children in a family, three more boys than I thought I’d have (I pictured myself as a mother of girls) and a gazillion number of lost hours of sleep :-)

I wouldn’t change any of it for the world!

A few times a year, we take ourselves off to a little cabin on the Red River in Heber Springs, AR.  In the summer months a heavy mist hovers over the river in the early hours of the morning. This particular trip however, was mid March when Spring had already made an appearance, yet the air and water were still crisp and clear.

I wanted to document this trip; to tell the story, capturing their excitement, curiosity, joy and adventurous spirits. This included the occasional mishap, too: an impalement from tree climbing and disappointment due to the unexpected arrival of snow which held us captive in the cabin! All part of the moments I will treasure.

This weekend we welcomed Mattheus into our family! His older brothers are delighted (though apparently 9 months is too long to wait!) Looking forward to taking more newborn photos in the next days but I’ll leave you with this one for now :-)
