Pumpkin Patch Day.
Some times you've just gotta stop and take a few pictures at a pumpkin patch with your kiddos!
Being a photographer AND a mommy...there are a lot of times when I don't make it into the pictures! Can I get an AMEN from all the mamas out there! I give my husband a hard time, saying that our kids are going to look back and wonder what mommy was doing while they played and went on adventures?! I was the middle child of 3 girls. My older sister - the 1st born- had all the pictures. My baby sister had all the video documentation. And even though my parents loved me deeply and did their best...I somehow ended up squeezing in with less than I had hoped for. I made a vow that I'd document each one of my kids lives fully and even though it has become more difficult with 4 versus when I had only 1 or 2 kiddos... I still run around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to piece together coordinating outfits and showing up with brushed hair - mine included!
These days I'm getting the hang of 'going with the flow'...which is so much more peaceful and easy for everyone!
Sometimes we hold on so tightly to things thinking that we have to maintain control of it all...but often the best thing we can do is let it go, take a deep breath, and literally find joy in the flow of what happens.
Happy Wednesday. Pumpkin Patch Day. And to learning to go with the flow even if it's just a little more than before....
This is my crew. I'm pretty obsessed with them.
