Picking the sweetest of subjects to photograph and being able to depict it so beautifully, the new 'La Famille' family portrait photography series by Alain Laboile whimsically reminds us what it was like to be free.

Documenting the freedoms of childhood among his six children in rural France, Laboile's intimate family portrait photography series is so achingly beautiful and simple. All in black and white, each photograph is like a documentation of a moment -- a moment this father of six would like to celebrate because it depicts his family life.

"Day to day I create a family album that constitutes a legacy that I will pass on to my children. My work reflects our way of life, revolving around their childhood. My photographs will be the testimony of that," says Alain Laboile.
