First, I’m a husband to my beautiful wife Melissa, father to our sons, and a co-pilot in everything kids-related.
I believe we need to first take care of ourselves as parents, else we won’t be able to guide our children effectively. I believe childhood should just be simple, including any and all “imperfections”. Capturing who you (and your child) are, is more important than what you wear.
Eye contact? Critically important, especially for the little ones. It is often that first look that solidify the interactions that will follow, at least in my experience.
I also believe in the modern, chaotic family life. It is through these chaotic times that beautiful moments can happen and be forever photographed.
