She said that she wanted some new family photos. I recommended that we wait until fall when the temps are a bit cooler. She said how does next week work for you? Um…… okay. So fall is out then. We planned it for the following Saturday.
After a while of shooting, her husband asked if she wanted him to get the thing they made out of the car. I had no idea what was happening. He brought back a board and asked me where he should put it. I told him I didn’t know because I wasn’t quite sure what it was. Then he turned it around.
It took a minute for it to sink in for me. But when it did I gave her a big hug and started to cry. You see, she is a friend of mine and I see her daily because we work together at our church daycare. I had no idea! The last I knew, they were done having children. Yep! She lied to me. She said that she always wanted more but didn’t want people bugging her on when the next one would come. I guess her strategy worked.
Needless to say, fall would have been a little late to share the news, which is why it happened sooner. Thankfully, the morning we chose was not blistering hot or muggy so it all worked out perfectly!
All of my children are very unique and have great, individual qualities. But one thing they have in common is that they are all a bunch of goofballs! I love their silliness. I guess because it makes our times together fun and interesting. Also, because it reminds me a bit of the way I used to be before I got old and boring. Life is such a great gift and it’s very important to enjoy it.
I did my usual, “hey Nolan, can we go out and shoot a few pictures for your annual shots?” All I NEED is 15 minutes. Just give me that.” Truthfully, that really is all I need. Providing it’s 15 cooperative minutes. It didn’t help that goofball sister #2 was along for the ride. My kids all feed off of each other’s strangeness. They come by it honestly I guess.
After the first spot, he looked at the pictures and said, “I think I’m good.” Really? You think you’re good? Cause I’m pretty sure I’m not. Mama needs more shots! So I got more shots. Not many, mind you, but more. I just love this
I think I can honestly say that this is my first family session that hasn’t involved small children. I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to handle it, but it only took a few minutes to get into the swing of things. The dogs helped out a lot! It was like corralling toddlers so there wasn’t too big of a difference. 😉
I’ve known the Freburgs for quite a while now, but have never really interacted with their sons much. I learned very quickly that they are a fun family. And the daughters-in-law (one to be) fit in perfectly!
Thank you, Freburgs, for allowing me into your evening for a few hours even though it pushed into your dinner and you had to eat late.
