When Maria told me that her kids eat dinner at 5 and are in bed by 7, I was seriously impressed. This mama is a teacher and their mornings start early, so the timing makes sense, but still! She also ends up preparing multiple different meals for her husband, two boys, and herself based on different allergies and diets. Sounds exhausting, right? AND the boys call both grandmas before bed every day to say goodnight. Maria manages it all with smiles and grace. Scroll on down to see the love and joy this family exudes in the normal evening I captured for them.
*I've partnered with Fairfield County Moms Blog to photograph the normal evening routines of their contributors. As a photographer, evenings are a goldmine for capturing fun, real moments. As a mom, it's SO great to be able to observe different families and see (and learn from!) the different ways moms deal with the struggles we all have around the end of the day and dinner time.
