I met the Harris family at a neighborhood park in Haleiwa for a sunset session. Their family has grown rapidly in the last year, from one boy to three! This session was to capture them settling in as a family of five with equal parts chaos and love.
Little boys bring a whole new level of activity to sessions so it's always important to me to allow them freedom to explore our session location. In this particular setting there was a row trees that I used to keep their oldest son engaged. When I noticed him losing interest, I would tell him to run around the tree and come up to mom and dad quietly and scare them. It worked like a charm.
This particular session moved quickly and the little ones maxed out at 30 minutes which is fantastic considering their ages.
One of my favorite ways to show calm in the chaos is by having parents sit or stand on one spot and telling the kiddos to run in circles around them. Kids think this is great! It brings out giggles and real smiles. I love the movement a bit of blur adds to the images.
