When I had my own family photoshoot back in March, I stressed about how to dress all 6 people in my family. This mom had to dress 9. And she rocked it!
Quick story about this family. Right after I had my 4th baby, I was very sleep deprived and feeling overwhelmed about the task of taking care of a newborn, a monkey of a 2 year old, and keeping 5 and 6 year old boys entertained AND getting their school work done. It felt like a daunting task. In those early post partum weeks, an article in the local paper came out about this mom of 7 and how she keeps it together. My dad brought it over for me to read, and handed it to me saying, “If she can do it, you can do it.” It was sweet of him. Except I totally took it in the opposite way that he intended. I was like, “Oh my gosh, she can take care of SEVEN and I can’t handle FOUR! I’m a FAILURE!!!!!!!!!” Oh post partum hormones. I don’t miss you.
Anyway, don’t worry, I’ve got this now. 😉 Four ain’t no thang. (Just kidding, four is hard. But it’s not. But it is…)
This family was lovely to work with and I’m so glad I got to meet them before they moved away! Momma Q, you are a rockstar!!
