Chaos at the Locks

I'm guessing that anyone with two or more small children will not be surprised to hear that a photo shoot with a family of four (two of whom were less than three years old) can be pretty chaotic. Baby Aubrey had just learned to walk and was intent on cruising around as fast as she could go. Luke was up and down, but happy to sit still as long as he had a snack, or bubbles, or a twig to play with. We met on a sunny morning at the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks in Ballard and spent the next two hours chasing Aubrey, changing clothes and diapers, making trips to the bathroom, and trying to get both kids looking in the one direction at the same time.

I was able to capture a few sweet moments for this family, including one where Luke went in for a sloppy kiss with his mom with his tongue hanging out of his mouth. I was also able to get a glimpse of what life may be like with two young kids, and holy cow it looks a little crazy.
