Family is an amazing part of life

I sit here trying to get some work and done and keep drifting thoughts of how grateful I am to have such 3 beautiful and unique children.Being a parent is not an easy thing but yesterday coming home from a back country ski day I walked in with my camera and shot these images of my kids.  It is very true that when you are in a grateful state of mind that everything and everyone is perfect just the way it is.  I really get in this state of mind after hiking through the mountains and breathing the fresh alpine air.  Typically I would have come inside my house a bit stressed of what I was going to walk into.  For instance telling my son Ryder that I am setting the timer to take the idevice, getting caught up with trying to help my wife with our baby Sage crying while Neko my 4 year old twin daughter tries to mediate and get someone’s attention and me telling her not now-later.

Not today, I was present and was on their level, each one of them in a very different place.

This was so easy to capture these images because I became enlightened in that particular moment.  This is why I love photography, my most impactful imagery comes to life when I stop and become fully aware.  Life is beautiful just the way it is.

Keep it in the moment,

  1. These are so precious! Have you heard of this project: It’s a group of photographers who are spending time taking pictures of their kids, and sharing their beautiful shots with all of us. Thanks for sharing!
