La vie en famille

La vie en family just sums up our lives living abroad. We don’t always get to share those really big moments with your family. Therefore capturing them if you can is kind of the important part. What is life without family, love and little cuddles anyway? I took a few photos of the Beattie family expecting their second baby pretty soon.

This time of years just makes me super nostalgic and lets me appreciated the really important things in life. Especially living abroad like many other families, you tend to get too independent and don’t “need” your family as much. Don’t get me wrong I can’t go without my family, but having children without help kind of strengthens you in a way you did not think possible.

Things like going to the movies, having a couples dinner or even watching television are somewhat more difficult. Routine, routine, routine is my daily life at this stage and it gets pretty stale sometimes, but it is also my saving grace most of the time. You become this expert at organizing and planning, without intentionally wanting to become that. You especially have to know when you want to take photos with the little one’s schedules indeed, otherwise, there will be a few mishaps indeed.

We went for photos at a lake nearby and I did not even think how spectacular the lake would be in the background. Their clothing color scheme worked so well together and the lake just enhanced their beautiful family even more.

I love family photos and would love my home to be full of all the memories we shared together, even if it wasn’t picture perfect at that stage. You’ll always remember how things went down and a picture is just the best reminder. Finding a good photographer that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg in France is really rare. That’s why I love to be the substitute for Families to capture those important moments in their lives.

Her little boy is just the cutest. This makes me look so much forward to every stage that my son is going to be in. It just gets better and better. She makes it look easy and I guess it never really is because everyone gets her down days. We all live and breath our children. We are mothers. Don’t you think even at the end of her pregnancy she just looks gorgeous. I forgot about “the pregnancy glow.”

Taking photos with a toddler is no easy task, but as long as you try and entertain them through the kiekies with whatever you can find. That is where real parenting comes in, playing along so you can get things done. He was such a champ and wanted to play with the leaves whilst his mama wanted a kiss on the tummy for baby. Introducing the new baby to the family is another tricky part. Suddenly there is two that you have to give your undivided attention to, but I have experienced with other mothers that the second baby usually is a breeze.

As the afternoon started to wind down and the sun started to fade, we where all pretty ready to go home. The autumn sun was so inviting and perfect and I am pretty happy with how the afternoon turned out. Thanks to the Beattie Family for letting me take pictures of their beautiful family.
