Every year I do a self-portait to document the passing time and to keep up to date on various studio lighting techniques. Here’s the series I did last year:
One of my favorite photo sets was from the first time Scarlett was running around chasing bubbles. I tried to do the same with the twins, but since they were less familiar with bubbles, they decided to catch them with their faces…
Also, Happy Valentine’s Day if you’re reading this on the day it’s published.
The photos appearing over the next few days are from the first time we took them out to run around on the driveway. Before that, they’d always been pushed in tricycles or strollers.
I’m not sure why kids love this so much, but it’s definitely a fun game to play with them; the smiles and laughs make it worth it.
We did it, we got through a year with twins. We had a lot of help – mostly from my mother in law, but also from my parents and with a little help from our friends. With Stella it was extra tough because we didn’t know for the first couple months that she was lactose intolerant. Once we figured that out, she was less miserable and life was good.
