Man, I love photographing families. There is something so beautiful about the craziness, the unpredictability, the chaos. Without fail, the kids never do what you want them to. They rarely smile on command or stand in the perfect light. But they run through the grass laughing, roll in the dirt grinning ear to ear, kiss their sibling as they wrestle them to the ground & hug their dads neck as he swings them into the air. I’m not a parent, but if I were, that’s what I would want hanging on my walls anyways. I would want to see my family just as they are- not totally in line, but having fun while trying.
The Ferraro’s were incredible. They simply existed in this field, hanging out & trusting me to capture them just as they were- happy, content, & loving on one another.
