family life

I wanted to share these photos by a famous photographer named Elliott Erwitt. He started taking photos in the 1950’s and is known for his black and white documentary-style photographs. He was capturing the ubiquitous “just feet and holding something out” photos way back in the day 🙂 The charming photos below are ones that depict love and family life, I especially like the one with the mom juggling three kids while tossing dinner in the oven! The simplicity of his shots are what I admire most… I would love to get a film camera with black and white film soon! Vanity Fair did a small interview with him, if you’re interested click here to read.

    I love the reality of the shot of the kids on the couch. I think as parents we always look for “the rainbow moments.”
