I have been working with this family since big brother was a newborn. I get such a kick out of seeing them every year and watching them grow up. The brothers are all boy and baby sister can totally hold her own with them…and me! She was a riot. I hardly recognized her, her hair was so much darker at her last session. I was actually caught off guard when mom took her hat off. Luckily we nailed a nice family shot with in the first few minutes of shooting. The rest of the time was spent thinking of creative ways to get baby sister close enough to her brothers for a few shots of just the kids. Easier said than done. Mom and dad are pretty easy going, we didn’t over do it with the coaxing and eventually she wanted to join in the fun. The boys were Rockstars this year! Lots of cooperation and very handsome smiles! It was great to see everyone.
This is not how I envisioned the photo when I made these props…I almost like it better. They are a little less than JOYful, but for some reason it made me laugh so I shot it!
