Handling six children is a tall order for anyone, but French photographer Alain Laboile manages to do it with grace.
Not only that, but his photographs of his family capture an raw glimpse into a beautiful life in rural France.
Laboile was challenged to put together a portfolio of his sculpture work in 2004 and acquired a camera to do so. Soon after, he found himself pointing the lens at his family, which has become the body of his work, "La Famille."
Laboile's works have drawn some comparisons to American photographer Sally Mann, who came under fire in 2010 for her own black and white photographs of her children in her "Immediate Family" series.
Laboile posts new work regularly to his Facebook page.
