Our friend and photographer, Bridget Wood, stopped by earlier this summer to take some photos of our family for a feature on the Moda Familia site. Most of the photos are featured on Moda Familia, along with interview questions and answers, but I just wanted to share a few photos here to document this moment in time for our family. It was mid November, the onset of summer, the kids were looking forward to Christmas and summer holidays, the weather was hot and humid, and Wilkie was taking mid-day baths in his enamel bowl to keep cool (what will we do when he no longer fits in that thing?!). We had bought a big, juicy watermelon for the kids to enjoy, and Bridget snapped away as the kids got sticky with watermelon.
In the past couple months since these photos were taken, the kids have changed so much. All the kids now have sun-kissed skin and blonder hair, Marlow got a haircut and had a growth spurt, Ivy grew taller, Easton and Quin have gotten stronger from all the surfing (with muscles forming that make them look more like little men than boys), and Wilkie has practically doubled in size. It’s crazy how much growth (both physical and emotional) happens over the summer holidays. Just looking at these photos makes it all the more evident. Marlow starts kindergarten next week and Easton starts high school. High school! Big changes happening soon. Thankfully I’ve got these sweet photos to always look back on.
