A Day in the Life | Vienna Family Pictures

I’ve documented quite a few families in their first homes just before they move. New routines, new grocery stories and new activities come with a new house. So lots of families want to document their lives before their next adventure. But people can be hesitant. Parents tell me that they are busting at the seams of their small house. It’s dark. It’s cramped. It’s a mess. I get it. But it’s your first home. It matters. And your kids probably won’t remember it without the pictures. We split the Day in the Life into two mornings because Mom’s favorite day of the week is Fun Friday. Of course, we needed dad in the photos, so I came back two days later and documented their Sunday morning.

Fun Friday is a lot of fun. It started with a music class for babies and young children. It was the best of the best of controlled kid chaos. The kids sang, they played instruments of bowls, spoons, and cymbals and danced with scarves.

Our next stop was Patrick Henry Library. Mom demonstrated some seriously talented parenting skills as she oversaw her oldest son check out books as the little one kept trying to crawl behind the desk to visit the librarians.

Dad gets up early with the kids on Sundays so mom can sleep in! He made strawberry muffins with the boys and held the little one the whole time so he could see.

Watching the boys play in the puddles was pretty hilarious because they had such different opinions on getting wet. I’ll let you guess who was all about falling in the puddles!
