The highlights for me was the sound of laughter and song. There was so much of it, too! At one point, I was running back and forth behind a fireplace to get the kids' attention. Each time I would disappear, I would stop for a second to listen to this family laughing hysterically and enjoying each other. Then when I would jump out from the wall, I couldn't stop laughing. I think this is the most I've ever laughed during a session.
Towards the end during our last attempt to get a picture of the grandparents with all three grandchildren, someone started to sing "I've Been Working on the Railroad." Everyone started to sing in harmony. It was such a sweet moment for me even though it didn't work with the kids. We still sounded great! And lastly, witnessing the love between each couple was truly amazing. When I left, I kept replaying the previous two hours in my head which reminded me why I do this.
Thank you again, Brown family, for letting me spend the afternoon with you. Enjoy your previews!
