A peak at what Kristine’s morning looks like before 8am as she gets ready for work. Kristine and her husband love to travel and have been a lot of cool places—his favorite trip ever was New Zealand; hers was Rio. They are raising their daughter to be tri-lingual (Vietnamese, Chinese, and English). On Tuesdays (the day we shot this), her mom comes over to watch Kara while Kristine is at work.

It’s Erica’s house before 8am. Erica & Christina moved here last year for Erica to take a job teaching at U of H. Christina stays home with their daughter, so this morning Erica was getting ready for work and Christina and Quinn were getting ready for a morning at home.

Stephanie before 8am

Stephanie’s kids are a little older than most of the kids in the other families I’ve photographed in this series. They are pretty independent, each getting themselves ready for school without much help. Stephanie is awake and hangs out with them chatting as they’re getting themselves ready.

And then almost as soon he’s gone, Stephanie’s daughter wakes up and comes downstairs.

She is a serious dancer. She dances 5 hours every day after school. And has been doing that since first grade. (She’s now in fourth.)

Brittney before 8am

We shot Brittney’s session on a Saturday morning. Her in-laws were in town from Baton Rouge because Brittney’s youngest son was being baptized the next morning.

So here’s a Saturday morning of breakfast and babies and grandparents.

When I got there, Brittney and her husband were starting to make breakfast, and everyone else was asleep still.
