This new norm has started feeling more normal. Even a trip to the grocery store feels ok, distancing and face shields included. .

These two were at each others throats for two days strait. I nearly lost my mind...correction, I completely lost it, more than once. Today they woke up and played non stop all day. A day of balance, cooperation and peace. I didn't dare interrupt their play for anything.  Now I'm feeling as superstitious as an athlete in the play offs. How can I do it all the exact same for tomorrow? . #hamont  #hamintonfamilyphotographers  #hamiltonfamilyphotographer  #hamiltonphotographer #reallifephotography Feelings, Play, Concert, Dares, Losing Me, Athlete, Photographer, Lost

I'll let who loves family lockdown time. This guy. No longer carted around to "watch" Rosa at gymnastics, uninterrupted naps without the school pick up rush.  You can now find him playing baby, crashing Lego time, and helping the laundry man put away the clean undies. ***I'm editing this to note that I think I love the lockdown for all the same reasons that Levi does!  #dfp_slowingdown  #hamont  #hamintonfamilyphotographers  #hamiltonfamilyphotographer  #hamiltonphotographer #reallifephotography Legos, Family Photographer, Toddler Bed, Guys, Guy, School

You know, I'm really good at squashing my emotions, putting them aside, keeping my cool to steady through the moment. It's usually later, after the storm calms that I'm able to let go and process my feelings. But the longer this goes on, the harder this is to maintain. I ended the day today with a zoom chat with our hamilton crew. I didn't want to say goodbye. It was like the moment you hear your moms voice and you burst into tears. The tidal wave of emotion.

Our day of social distance. I had a hard time with today. I was itching to break out of this house, but we don’t really have anywhere to go. The places that clear my mind, the park and natural spaces, are places that are now increasing my anxiety. We went to the park. I held Levi back from the slides and the swings. You touched some things I wished you hadn’t and I took many deep breaths to get me through the day. . . . #hamont  #hamintonfamilyphotographers  #hamiltonfamilyphotographer  #hamilto Places, Distance, Nature, Social Distance, Swings, Breakouts, Hard Times
