Here is a typical Saturday and a typical weekday at our house. The magic of film is being restricted by a specific number of frames and the camera I choose and then being totally surprised with whatever images get returned.

This is the sort of imagery that sets my heart on fire and it’s why I share it so much. These photos are what make or break a family because they convey the “rough around the edges” qualities all families have. I mean, unless your kids wear matching clothes most days? I didn’t think so.

I also made sure to get in these photos and allowed my husband to take the reigns. Is that not the best photo of me and the kids ever in the history of the world? Their faces!

Happy fall everyone! Get those pumpkin spice lattes while you can!

P.S. If you need to order Christmas cards in the coming weeks, check out my favorite consumer site, Tiny Prints!
