Sarah and Joe are raising three boys. Their world of climbing trees and building forts is totally foreign to me. I grew up in a house full of women. My three sisters and I wore dresses and hair bows and collected Barbies. It was a world of painted fingernails and ballet slippers where our prized possession was a two-story dollhouse.
One rainy morning in December I got a taste of what it’s like to be in a house full of boys. This family makes it look like a lot of fun.
When we had finished shooting pictures, the boys were treated to eggnog and waffles. When Sarah told them they could make whipped cream to go on top, I decided this breakfast had to be photographed. They were kind enough to let me stick around, and I’m so glad I did because these are some of my favorite pictures of my time with the Pays.
