Slater really wanted the Elf to visit his room that night. This was another night I was all set for bed, in bed… late:P Luckily I think creating the elf antics is fun. Thirty minutes later I was back in bed.
It’s so fun to photograph this family. I have seen this family yearly since before the triplets were one (here, here, here and here). With the chaos of three babies all the same age, a beach shoot was never a real possibility but a dream to one day happen… And this is the year it happened. The beach shoot was planned and we got some pretty epic conditions. Low tide, amazing hazy sunset, warm weather… it couldn’t have been better.
I had this dream of documenting each night of our elf antics. We’ve been doing this for a couple of years now and the ideas are all over the internet so it makes it easy to come up with fun stuff. Even with that ease, I still get into bed every night, get comfy and warm and then BAM! I sit straight up and remember the elf. While Slater and I were shopping for decorations this year, we came upon Mrs. Clause and Santa Clause with the exact faces of our Elf so for sure they would come alive…. and we had to get them.
We started a little late this year and my dream of documenting is only partial. Here are a few images from our sack races from last night. Slater loved it.
Just wanted to share a few images from our beach day yesterday. I help run a program called Dirt Time! with Susie’s farm for kids and while I have a giant stash of images, I can share these of Slater (and one of the whole groups backs:). It is very windy and cold by the way. All the kids were in the water having a great time though.
