on a beautiful afternoon this past fall, i traveled three hours south to document the magic of the croucher family. i don’t think i stopped smiling from the moment i arrived until long after i’d made the drive back home to edmonton late that evening.
from their warm welcome and the perfect mix of laughter and chaos and tenderness, to the way the older kids were so lovely with the littler ones and the way mom and dad looked upon their family with such love, it was a joy to document a piece of their story and create a gallery filled with the ordinary extraordinary moments that make up their days. i came away from our session filled with gratitude and feeling optimistic about how life with teenagers in my own home could look in a few years’ time.
christine was kind enough to share some words about the experience after the session and reading her words may or may not have made me a bit teary…
“andrea is a natural storyteller and her playful, adaptable and experienced approach immediately set us at ease as we were assured that our version of wild, crazy chaos is in fact beautiful and worthy of being celebrated. she has taken an ordinary evening for our family and told a story of love, life and family in images we will cherish for a lifetime.”
