since adding a 5th member to our family in May we have had to learn teamwork like never before. When it was just four of us my husband would take Gracen and I would take Darby. Yes, teamwork was involved but our teamwork was more separate teamwork. We both had our ‘assigned’ children and for the most part we stuck with our method and it worked well for all of us. Adding a third child has taken a little bit of adjustment, especially when we want to actually leave the house which is needed at least once a week for my sanity. At any given moment one of us has to take two of the kids while the other has one, this presents a big problem when all three are needing something! I took the picture above on one of our first stress-free family outings. Which is a huge accomplishment right now, HUGE! This experience has definitely brought us all closer together, we are now working as a closer unit than we ever have before and I’m loving seeing our family grow in this way.
family is…everyday moments
part of the reason that I keep getting behind on this challenge is that I have been trying to set up the ‘perfect’ shot for each of the weeks that I do. I had my 29 week image for a while but because I didn’t have anything set up for week 30 it sat there waiting. I realized last week that this whole project is about capturing our family throughout this year. I realized that it’s not so much about the perfect image, but a good image that captures our life right now. So this week there are so many imperfections that I, as a photographer wish I could change about this image, but as a mama this split second moment of my two oldest going in for a hug without me even suggesting it is perfect.
today is supposed to be week 31 so I will be posting that on Monday.
