MY LOVES |Penélope + Geneviève | Minneapolis Family Photographer

You might think that as a photographer with a fancy camera I take pictures of my kids all the time.

Well.

Not really.

I use my iPhone most of the time.

BUT.  I try to plan a shoot for Holiday Cards.  Every year it’s the same thing: it all falls apart after 10-15min.  I’m either running frantically after Genevieve or offering unreasonable bribes to both of them or someone is having a melt down.  I’m an awesome parent.

This year I left thinking I had a LONG shoot with them.  Once I checked my capture times, it was only a one minute increase : 16min  🙂

The cards never got sent out.  It’s currently Spring.  Not winter. Not 2015. But I wanted to share these because, well, just because. It’s here, in the chaos of it all, in the over-caffeinated-sleep-deprived-mom-turned-photographer-life,  where I find inspiration.  Still.

When I see my girls through my lens I remember why I love taking pictures.

I remember how much I love being their mom.

I remember how lucky I truly am.

Genevieve was very unhappy with the cold.  The End. 🙂
