I always look forward to taking pictures of this family! This is my second photoshoot with them, and so much has changed in the last few years!! Six kids and one on the way now! Can I just say how awesome these kids are? As soon as I told them to look at the camera they all stood in a line and looked right at me! If you are a photographer, you know how hard it is to get kids to look at the camera especially six of them!
One of my favorite parts about family photos is capturing each child’s personality. Some of the kids gave me sass, some were shy, some acted as my second eye to make sure I captured every single photo, and then you always have that one outgoing child who wants to be in every picture!
Parents are always so worried about their children “cooperating” during family portraits, but truth be told, I thrive off of the chaos of expression! Children enjoy running around, squeezing each other, and doing the exact opposite of what you tell them. But these are the pictures that tell their unique story, and I want to capture all of it!
