Tongue Twister with the O’Briens
The paradox of describing a paradox, that is how I feel when thinking about the O’Briens. At first glance they seem like your model citizen family–proper, well behaved, and sweet. However when let loose they are a mega goof ball like a flying fire turtle thats herds cats in the air. I’m not sure what they feed their kids, but I want some of it! Photographing the O’Briens always been a pleasure and a hoot. The kids are just so animated and in your face like a puppies. Then add the dad (Brendan) to mix it’s an explosive cocktail. The mom (Judy) is the judge and jury of voice of reason–time to meet your maker. However it is the diversity that really makes this family awesome in its own tier.
I had a privilege of staying with them sometime ago. Observing and interacting with the family was educational and inspirational–slowly melted my bachelor mind set into having a family just like them. These photographs where taken on December of 2012, before baby CamCam (his name is Camden) was born. Now there are three kids in the house. I wonder what it would be like in a few month. 🙂
