Show me color, show me fun! Show me different and I’ll run run run (or jump for joy, or do a little jig, or call you back for more)! Gotta love those who are willing to let loose and be different! A picture is worth lots of words… something like a thousand I hear.
Have you ever felt really moved by something or someone? Have you ever been in awe at the dedication and selflessness of another. I have much to learn about raising a family and I can tell you that this family could teach me lots! Can I just hang on to their coat tails and hope to pick up on some of their goodness? I only have 2 kids and getting us out the door, all in one piece, let alone all in the same direction seems like an impossible task at times. Hats off to this family who have 5 kids- 5 kids to dress, to feed, to bathe, to carpool, to take to appointments in all different directions and to photograph. Can you imagine it? Well, they handle it like it’s no big thing. : ) Something extra special about this family is that all 5 kids are adopted. Their dedication to family is incredible and an inspiration to me. She has done her homework and worked with several different agencies and says that Heart and Soul (in case you know of anybody who might need adoption services) has been her favorite. I love their story, their rich lives filled with children, activity, play and chaos (in a good way!). I called this behind the scenes but it ended up being The Scene. She loved this picture the most because of what it said about them, what really is happening behind the scenes is actually their true scene.
I love these moments, candid moments. Nobody is going to be hanging this above their sofa as a 60×40 print (I would). How could I NOT keep this? If I was a millionaire (maybe I would need to be a billionaire to do this) I would compile a short story from people’s photo shoots, make large prints, and design their wall using Minda or Alisha (since they are much more skilled in that area than I) and have all sorts of prints like THIS-the true side. Who cares about the boring ones-everybody has those. I want personality, I want emotion, I want something different. BTW, this happened to come because Darin was going to have his boys hanging from both sides-showing his strength of course. Well, somehow that ended up like this- a comparison and what appears to be a size debate. : )
