If you have kids of your own, you know that having a family is hard work. Of course family love is unconditional and has no end, but let’s be real, sometimes this kind of love can feel messy and exhausting. You catch yourself doing odd things to keep your children from losing focus or melting down, and the best you can do is embrace it.
My background is in photojournalism, so when I get to work with a family that just wants to be a family while I hang out with my camera, I get pretty excited. The Crowley family wanted just that for their family session at their home in Northfield, Massachusetts, and I was more than happy to capture all of the silly, messy love they have for each other.
It was a HOT summer day and after getting a few photos in the sunny field across the street from their home, they just had to jump in the pool.
And no, they did not change out of their nice family picture clothes!
To the Crowley family — thank you for sharing all of these wild family moments with me. It was such a treat to capture a slice of your adventure.
