Goodnight, A Family Documentary

Photography by Jeff

I think most parents can agree that the nightly routine can be full of chaos. In fact, we call the hours between 5:30-8:30 the “witching hours” – you never know what you are in for and you always breathe a small sigh of relief once everyone is asleep. But despite the craziness, I can’t help but think that in a flash, they will be on their own and I’ll wish for moments like this again. So for the Murphy clan’s creative family shoot, we decided to capture some of those memories for them, showing up during their evening routine that involved getting all FOUR of their kids to bed. It was fast paced, but we had a lot of fun jumping on beds while dodging lightsaber swings. Needless to say, the glass of wine at the end of it all was defintely well deserved. Thanks Kevin + Steph for letting us in to your warm, fun and crazy household!

    Jeff, I knew when you and Jen were here shooting that the results were going to be fabulous, but these are even better than I imagined! You managed to capture the kids' spirits and even got me into my pj's in front of a camera - that's quite the skill!!! Thanks yet again, we (all 6 of us!) LOVE them!!
