Date: Saturday 21st
Time: 11am

Monday had every intention of getting to Kieran's house at a decent time in the morning for the planned photo shoot, but intentions didn't mean much with two children. They were all ready - breakfasted, dressed smartly despite Tom sulking that he wasn't allowed to wear a costume or take nearly all his toys with him - and were just going out the door when Josh sicked up some milk all over his clothes. It was nothing serious health-wise, but when it came to time...

It took nearly an hour to remedy the situation. Monday had all of their clothes washed, ironed and set aside for a few days before the photoshoot and had gone into a little panic after being forced to re-decide for Josh, going through the available clean clothes in a frenzy and even phoning up his sister to double check his choices again (the first choice had already been Indie-approved, along with Tom's and his own clothes). Monday wanted the pictures to be good, as close to perfect as he could get, so he hadn't wanted to leave anything to chance. He'd already cancelled the first scheduled day due to Josh being ill and he didn't want to cancel again. The first time had left him feeling bad enough, like he was messing Kieran about, and it was something beyond Monday's control. He only hoped Kieran would understand.

By the time they'd walked to Kieran's house, Monday felt strained, Tom was restless and Joshy was still slightly whiney from having been re-dressed. Monday took in a deep breath to try and calm down, patted Tom encouragingly on the arm to try and get a smile out of the boy, and knocked at the door.

"I'm so sorry we're late, things didn't go to plan this morning." Monday rushed to apologise as soon as Kieran had opened the door, ending with a tired smile. "This' Tom.. and Josh." He gestured to Tom first, who was holding a stuffed Pterodactyl toy known as Flappy and said a quiet hello to Kieran which indicated he was still a little sulky, and then Joshy, who looked like he was ready to nap in his pushchair after spending most of the walk to Kieran's house crying. "It's been one of those mornings." Monday confessed.

January tended to be a fairly quiet month for him, he often found a lot of people didn't really have the money for expensive shoots straight after Christmas. Work would usually pick up again at the beginning of February when Valentine's day was upcoming, he knew this year he had quite a few shoots booked along with some weddings. It hadn't bothered him too much when Monday had cancelled their shoot before Christmas, he understood that small children got ill, Grace had been unwell a couple of months ago and these things just couldn't be helped. Besides, he had managed to find a suitable date in January and as far as he was aware they were still going ahead with it. He'd taken Grace round to his mother's house for the morning so she was being occupied. That was one less thing to worry about, now he just had to wait for Monday and his two sons to turn up for the shoot.

It was around eleven when there was a knock on the door and Kieran headed out to greet his clients. He opened the door and smiled at Monday, his gaze drifting to the two young boys with him. This was going to be a fun shoot, Kieran just had that feeling. "Don't worry about it, I know how it is. I'm sure you have your work cut out for you" he laughed, given a small wave to the two boys. "Nice to meet you... Tom... Josh... I'll try and remember the names, just correct me if I get them mixed up" he grinned, noting the stuffed toy in Tom's hand. "And who's this little guy? He's awesome" he grinned, wondering if it was a favourite. It was like Grace and her bunny, she would take it everywhere with her at the moment. Kieran was so afraid of her losing it. He held the door wide open so they could come inside, "Come on in, you can leave that here..." he said, looking at the pushchair, there was enough space inside the door. "My studio is in my basement so I'll take you down in a second" he said, his house was modern so that didn't seem as bad as it sounded. "Can I take your coats?" he asked, closing the door behind them, it was cold outside.

It was relief that filled Monday when Kieran opened the door, not seeming the slightest bit annoyed. Even Tom perked up when Kieran laughed. He looked like he was studying the older man slightly.

"Joshy's still a baby, he doesn't talk yet." He said, slightly seriously, "And this is Flappy, he's a pterosaur or a pterodactyl." He held the toy up, "He is pretty awesome." Tom smiled a little smugly as he walked in, obviously proud of his toy.

Monday smiled, shooting Kieran a glance, and got the pushchair sorted, parking it where Kieran gestured. He started removing some of Josh's layers, his gloves already half-off, as usual, turning it into a little game of tickling to try and brighten him up.

"Yeah, thanks." Monday breathed out a laugh, juggling baby, bag and coats to remove his own, passing it and Josh's to Kieran. Tom was most of the way with his, distractedly looking around the entrance to Kieran's house. It was probably the most modern house he'd been in, in America at least. "Tom." Monday nudged him and his son nodded, quickly taking his coat off after being caught nosing about and offering it to Kieran too.

"You're a photographer?" Tom double checked, having already asked his father a few questions that Monday had done his best to answer. "Do you take photos of famous people?" Monday laughed quietly to himself, finishing bundling up Josh's scarf, hat and gloves and placing them in the pushchair. He glanced to Kieran, not wanting to answer for him, but not wanting Tom's questions to annoy him either. He had a feeling the next question on the tip of Tom's tongue involved a particular movie or celebrity. "Well, I don't know if Kieran has, but there's plenty of other that need photos taken of them too." Monday grinned, reaching down to tickle at Tom's side, "Like you!" He laughed, glad Tom's sulking hadn't lasted for long.

On first impressions, Tom was definitely a chatty little thing. Probably full of energy too, Kieran could never understand where kids seemed to get it from. "Hi there, Flappy" he grinned as Tom showed his toy off. Kieran helped to hang the coats up in the hallway, turning back around and looking down at the little boy as he questioned him. Kieran grinned, "I sure am!" he nodded his head, he was totally fine with the questions and didn't mind answering them at all. "There's a famous race car driver that lives in town and I've taken photos of him before" he said, referring to Mathias Falk who he was fairly friendly with. "If you know any celebrities, you can tell them I'll happily photograph them" he chuckled, he'd taken pictures of people who hoped to be famous one day, but living in Lochland there wasn't exactly much chance of bumping into any celebrities. He knew a guy he'd gone to college with that worked as a paparazzi in Los Angeles now. Each to their own but Kieran didn't agree with any of that, invading someone's privacy wasn't cool.

He waited until the three of them had succesfully removed their outer layers of clothing and then he smiled, "Okay, you guys ready?" he asked, motioning for them to follow him downstairs. There was a door to his photography studio which he kept locked when not in use, so he unlocked the door and flicked the light switch. It was a spacious room, with the photography set up at one end with a white backdrop. The other end of the room had a couch and two comfy chairs for clients. He also had a desk with a computer which he used for clients to view their photos afterwards. "So, this is where I'll be taking your photos today..." he pointed to the white backdrop, "And I'll let you look at them afterwards. Have you been practicing your best smile, Tom?" he grinned, he did happen to also have a large mirror in the room too because most people wanted to check they looked good before having their photos taken. Well, men didn't seem to be too bothered but he couldn't recall ever taking a picture of a female who hadn't checked herself out in the mirror beforehand. That always made him laugh.

Monday nodded and motioned for Tom to walk after Kieran, following them both down the stairs with Josh in his arms. So far there'd been no crying, no screaming and no awkward questions - Monday was pretty proud of his boys.

"Wow. This' a nice setup." Monday commented when they were downstairs, letting his gaze scope the room. Tom copied his actions, though his comment was of a slightly different nature, "It'd make a cool bat-cave."

"All my smiles are best smiles." Tom said, in a voice that Monday knew was his 'showing-off voice. He smiled nicely at Kieran and then started pulling a variety of ridiculous and goofy smiles. He turned to the mirror, still pulling faces and then switched, making it appear like Flappy was looking at his reflection instead. Monday took the opportunity to make sure Josh's clothes were straight, tucked in where they should be, untucked where they should be, and that his hat hadn't messed with the attempt at styling his hair Monday had done. He turned to Tom and managed to steer him away from the mirror just as he looked like he was going to press his nose up against it. After straightening out Tom's t-shirt, Monday was done.

"Right... we're ready, if you are?" He led Tom towards where the backdrop was, looking at Kieran as a guide. Tom was still doing ridiculous smiles towards where the camera would be and Monday nudged him to make him stop. Josh was being a lot more manageable - he seemed pretty content to just be held and play with Monday's ear. Monday looked back to Kieran."Where do you want us?" He laughed.

Kieran liked it when he got compliments about his studio, he had worked hard and put a lot of money into it getting set up. One day he'd like to relocate it to somewhere bigger, but it worked fine for him right now especially as he was essentially working from home. That proved to be useful considering he was a single parent as well. Maybe when Grace was at school age he'd start looking into his options of buying a premises somewhere. "Thank you..." he nodded his head in acknowlegement to Monday's comment, chuckling slightly at Tom's comment afterwards. It was funny how kids took a slightly different perspective on things.

He watched as Tom praticed his smile along with a variety of different facial expressions. Oh boy, this was going to be fun! "Good... you're going to be a pro at this then!" he laughed, letting the three of them have a little time to ensure they were looking their best for the photos. Kieran had an eye for detail, if something looked out of place then he'd usually step in. He just wanted to be able to provide his clients with the best possible photographs and he didn't want the blame if something didn't look quite right. "Let's get this show on the road then" he grinned, leading them over to the backdrop. "Okay... there should be an 'X' marked on the floor, so if you can position yourselves there. Monday... if you want to sit down with Josh on your lap..." he started, he already had this pictured in his mind, if the positions didn't look right then things could be switched around. "And Tom... if you want to sit down next to your dad and your brother. We'll see how that looks" he said, taking his position behind the camera on the tripod which he was going to have to lower so it was at eye level with them.

There was indeed an 'X' marking the spot on the floor and Monday went over to it, adjusting his jeans so he could sit down comfortably. He placed Josh on his lap as instructed, feeling nervous but hopeful that his youngest might just smile for some of the pictures. It wasn't that Josh never smiled, only the second Monday got ready to take a photo any cute grin he was wearing seemed to disappear, usually switched for a slightly grumpy look of confusion. Monday had endless photos of that particular expression because of it.

Tom had boundless energy that morning, as usual, but did manage to sit down and not fidget too much. Monday felt slightly hyper-aware, trying to watch for every possibility, like Tom poking at or annoying Josh or Josh trying to chew on an item of clothing, a stray booger or bit of dribble or... there were so many things. He took a breath and tried to force himself to relax. He didn't want it to be himself ruining an otherwise great picture.

"Here?" Tomy had wiggled around to get comfortable and grinned up Monday and then at Kieran, his excitement very obvious. "That seems good." Monday smiled down at him, fond. This was it. He'd be getting the family photos he'd been thinking of for months and even if they didn't turn out exactly like he imagined them, he knew they'd be good.

He looked to Kieran, ready to cycle through whatever different poses he wanted.

Photoshoots which involved kids were always the most challenging and probably the most time consuming as well, usually because they never wanted to sit still or got too tired and started crying halfway through. But that was mostly to be expected and he could be patient, there was no point in rushing otherwise the photos didn't turn out quite as well as you'd planned. And he always wanted the best possible photographs to provide his clients with afterwards. If he took on a job then he'd do it well and see it to the bitter end.

The three of them were soon in place and Kieran glanced through the viewfinder, lining up the shot to make sure he was taking it at the right angle. "Perfect" he said, he even managed to capture the first shot of Tom grinning up at his dad which he thought was a good one, he'd already explained he liked the photos the best where people were caught offguard. It just seemed more natural somehow. "Okay... eyes here" he tapped on the camera lens, he knew the little one probably didn't have a clue what was going on, although it seemed that even babies these days were aware of what a camera was with all this new technology they were lucky enough to be growing with virtually from birth. Kieran took shot after shot with them in that position, "Brilliant... looking good, guys" he peered over the top of the camera for a second, ready to try something else now. "Okay... hmm... Monday, if you can put your arm around Tom and bring him in a little closer..." he suggested, peering through the viewfinder again to see how that looked. He chuckled slightly, noticing Josh wasn't currently smiling. "Hey, Tom... can you do something to make your brother laugh?" he grinned, it could also make for an amusing photo too, it was fun to mix things up a bit.

So far, the boys had been good, but after only a few photos, Monday could sense both of the kids growing bored with it. Monday did as Kieran directed, trying to move with a bounce to his limbs in an attempt to keep Tom and Joshy focused, to try and keep it fun. He pulled Tom closer and nodded for him to try and make Josh laugh.

Tom pulled a face, which only made Josh frown at him, but when he blew a raspberry Josh quickly began laughing, a shrieking laughter every time Tom went to make the noise. Monday grinned, forgetting about the photos for a minute.

The next, though, Tom decided to give Josh a poke while he blew raspberries, which rather than a laugh, resulted in Josh screaming in annoyance. Monday quickly rocked him, attempting to comfort him, and while the screaming stopped, he had a little grumpy frown fixed on his face and looked like the slightest thing might make him scream again. He was like a little bomb, primed and ready to go off.

"I'm thirsty." Tom also decided to announce, and Monday glanced at Kieran. "Is it okay if we take a small break?" Monday asked. He had some cartons of juice in his bag, along with a variety of snacks and toys and odds and ends which might keep both the boys amused. A quick snack might even help to de-grumpify Josh. Tom poked him again for reasons Monday really wished he could work out (it wasn't a new thing, him seemingly trying to annoy his younger brother on purpose) and Josh started crying, straining to get out of Monday's grip.

"Tom..." Monday gave him a disapproving look which only merited "I was trying to make him laugh!" and another grumpy face on Tom. Zero to two grumpy children in under ten seconds... Monday took a deep breath and forced himself to smile.

"Okay...I think we all need a snack." He carried the still wriggling Josh over to the bag and started sorting through for something to appease the boys. After the original novelty had worn off, the slightly repetitive act of getting photos taken was hardly going to be fun for young children and Monday had slightly expected it. He handed Tom some juice and got out a container with some cheerios for Josh.

Didn't they say you should work with children or animals? It was certainly a challenge anyway, but one that was usually worth it. He found family photography the most challenging out of everything he did because getting children to sit still for more than a few seconds at a time could be very difficult. Monday's kids were no different, but Kieran worked with what he had, snapping away until it became quite clear that Josh had had enough. At least for now anyway. A break seemed like a great idea, maybe after a drink and a snack they'd be ready to go again.

Kieran stepped back from behind the camera and nodded his head, "It's fine with me... we've plenty of time" he smiled, pointing towards the couch, "You can take a seat over there if you like" he suggested, that was the reason why he at least tried to make his studio comfortable as well. Poor Monday had his hands full with two young kids, Kieran wondered how on earth he managed, he struggled enough with one child on his own. "Kids, eh? Who'd have them..." he joked as he looked towards Monday, "I can get you a tea or a coffee if you like?" Kieran offered, sometimes for bigger shoots that would take more time he hired someone to help him with the little things like that. Although he'd fired the last guy for not turning up to a location shoot, reason number 1000 why he preferred to work alone and do everything himself. For a moment he turned back to the camera, flicking through the photos he'd already taken, there were some that would probably never see the light of day but there were also some decent ones that he thought showed how close the three of them were. "Great work so far, guys. I have some good ones" he turned back, heading over to where the three of them were.

Tom immediately dived at the couch when Kieran mentioned it, Monday biting back warnings about not to run or climb on furniture and to be careful when he had a straw in his mouth, giving Tom a level look instead. The boy twisted around so he was sitting properly and sucked on his juice box, looking the picture of innocence, and Monday gave him an encouraging smile. He was trying to remember that it would be less easy to stay tuned in to having photos taken fo his sons than it was for himself. It even got a little bit grating for Monday, smile, move, smile again, the entire time him worrying if his smile looked genuine or if Tom was pulling a funny face in []i]all[/i] of the pictures( he didn't mind some, but he would like a few pictures of him actually smiling, too) or if Josh even had his eyes open. He didn't know how anyone could be a model. Or, a photographer, for that matter.

"Kids, eh? Who'd have them..." Monday laughed softly. "Crazy people, apparently." He smiled at Kieran, "A tea would be amazing. Thanks."

He felt pleased that they'd made a little progress, especially when the boys calmed down while eating. He'd emptied a pre-made carton of baby milk into a bottle and Josh was eagerly feeding, quiet in his arms as he went to rest on the couch next to Tom. Tom was likewise still sucking on his juice, quiet apart from drinking noises, walking Flappy along the edge of the couch. It was blissfully quiet, though Monday knew not to expect it to last too long.

"Where's your daughter, today?" Monday asked Kieran, "Do you have a babysitter?" He could do with a good babysitter himself, but it wasn't easy to find one that he felt he could trust.

Kieran laughed slightly as Tom pretty much dived onto the couch, though he soon seemed to settle with his juice in his hand. A break was probably for the best, though Kieran worked efficiently and he was sure they could get through this photoshoot fairly quickly. It was always harder with kids involved because they never wanted to sit still or just got distracted easily. "I'm right on it" he nodded his head as Monday took up his offer of a hot drink. Kieran had a small kitchen area in the corner so he quickly put the kettle on, taking out a couple of mugs and milk. Whilst he was there he figured he may as well make one for himself as well, leaving the three of them to themselves for a couple of minutes.

He returned back to the couch with a mug of tea for Monday, he took a sip from his own mug, smiling as he watched Tom play with Flappy. He seemed rather quiet for now, but he was sure that could all change in the blink of a second. He always got suspicious when kids stayed quiet for too long, wondering what was going on in their heads. Grace seemed to be fairly quiet by nature even though she was picking up on new words every day, maybe it was because she was an only child and didn't have anyone to compete against and didn't need to fight for her father's attention. Either way she was chilled out most of the time, but that didn't stop the tantrums of course. "She's with my mom and my aunt this morning... I expect they're making a fuss of her" he laughed, they always did. "They're always down for babysitting, which is great because I don't really like the idea of leaving her with strangers" he admitted, maybe when she was a little older he'd consider it but he really had some trust issues with people. "She does go to a really good daycare centre sometimes though, I take her there so she can meet other babies her age... it's difficult for me, I don't really know anyone well enough that has kids" he shrugged, that would probably be because he didn't have many actual friends.

"Ah, thanks." Monday reached for the tea like it was a lifeline. Maybe it was a little bit stereotypical, but he loved tea. It was practically culture, he thought, back home if anything went wrong the usual solution was to first put the kettle on before doing anything else. "As my sister says.. 'nothing like a good cuppa'." He smiled to himself and took a sip, grateful for the break.

He was also grateful for the relative quietness of the boys. Josh was at least quiet, sucking away at the bottle of milk. Tom wasn't being too loud, though as he continued playing with Flappy and finished his juice, his play took on the usual sound effects. Flappy falling off the sofa.. splat. Flappy flying into the side of the sofa... complete with wheeee flying noise and various bash and crashes as Tom acted him tumbling about. Monday as able to filter most of it out - he was used to it.

"I bet she's loving that." Monday smiled over his cup of tea, still feeding Josh with his other arm. "It sounds handy. My sisters used to help me out all the time but now they're an ocean away, there are times I feel like I could use a babysitter. I've looked into the daycare before, I might see about Josh going there some days. That's still only Josh, though, and wouldn't help me any evenings. Not that I have some crazy social life I want to get out to, but it doesn't make it easy meeting people, well, my own age. I've met a few parents, but they're not usually single parents. It's.. a different dynamic. Most of them don't want to take in a stray dad to be friends with." Monday smiled. Other parents wanted to spend time... together. Monday wasn't interested in third wheeling, he wasn't interested in socialising too much either, but knowing one or two people would be nice, people he could actually spend adult time with. Spending all his time with two kids was only going to send him round the bend sooner or later.

Kieran grinned slightly as Monday accepted the cup of tea, "I always thought that was a stereotypical British thing" he laughed, he could drink tea as well but he was definitely more of a coffee person. "Me on the other hand... I don't think I'd function without a coffee in the morning" he grinned, he was definitely bordering on having a caffeine addiction, but hey, there could be worse things to be addicted to, right?

He watched Tom quietly for a few moments who was clearly enjoying playing with his toy, adding sound effects too now which made Kieran smile. He turned his attention back to Monday though as he spoke, he could definitely relate to him on some level. Monday definitely had it harder than him with two kids though and Kieran had a few more family members around town to help him out. "Yeah... it's difficult. I mean, I can be as unsociable as hell... but I do long for a civilised adult conversation at times" he chuckled, he'd definitely never had much of a social life anyway because he'd decided he hated most people and would rather spend time by himself. He could make a few exceptions, but even then he found himself longing to be alone. He wouldn't admit it, but there was definitely a bit of social anxiety there even though he tried his best to hide it. Kieran took a sip from his tea whilst he thought about how much things had changed since he'd had Grace, "I'll probably never date again either" he joked, that was a bit of a lie because now he had a date lined up with a twenty-something blonde haired, blue eyed beauty. Okay, so he'd been friendly with Zoe for some time now so it wasn't liked he'd picked some random girl off the streets. "Anyway, it's nice to meet someone who kinda understands. I feel like there should be a single dad's club or something around here" he laughed, that was partly a joke but it didn't sound like a bad idea.

Monday laughed. "Yeah... might be a stereotype, but it's one that's true. I'm still finding out which American stereotypes are true as I go along. Turns out there's not a McDonalds on every street corner. He grinned at Kieran.

It had been a big move, going to America, applying for visas and planning on being away from all the family he'd grown up, but while a big move it felt like one in the right direction. After everything that had happened, Monday had felt like he needed such a huge change. A new start. He still missed his sisters - that would never change - but he felt he was doing things for the right reasons.

Some adult company still sounded nice.

"The crying and baby talk gets to you." Monday agreed, only to be prodded by Tom. "I don't cry or talk like a baby. You can talk to me, Daddy," he offered, sounding thoughtful, "Me and Flappy!" He held the toy up to Monday and Monday couldn't help but smile. "Ah, yeah, where'd I be without you and Flappy, hm?" He put an arm around Tom, giving him a quick squeeze. He shot Kieran an amused glance. "It'd still be nice to have someone to talk to when you're at school." Tom seemed to consider that and then nodded, apparently content, his attention already shifted back to playing.

Monday couldn't help letting out a surprised laugh at the mention of dating. "Oh, don't... I don't even have time to think about that these days." He agreed, laughing a little more at the thought of it. It would be nice, yes... but when was he going to meet someone, and even if that happened, where would he find the time to get to know someone?

Josh was finished feeding and Monday shifted to put the empty bottle back in the bag, relieved that Josh seemed quite calm and content. "Maybe we are the single dad's club?" He joked back. For all he knew, they were the only two single dads in the town. He was yet to meet any others. "How long have you been a single parent?" Monday asked. He knew how awkward it was to be asked the questions, but knowing that didn't make him less curious.
