This is what I felt during the session with this beautiful family. So much warmth and connection. And the kids were literally screaming–and almost crying–from laughter. Sure, I engaged in the usual antics— swinging my hips and singing, shouting silly things, and kicking off my shoe, which flew over my head–yes, I’m completely shameless and will do anything to entertain my subjects. But these kids were in stitches over their father, who was clearly funnier than me. And if a guy can make his 12 year old daughter laugh for an hour, pose with a pile of contented kids on his back, and elicit hugs, licks, and so much joy, then he must have a really big heart.
