Although I couldn't imagine having eight kids myself, I'm here to tell you these parents do it beautifully. This session was so much fun, the kids were so kind and helpful, and we had a blast together!
I must say that I am a huge fan of being in the mountains all summer long taking photos. The weather is cooler and the backdrop cannot be beat. I am so grateful to have my studio to shoot in all winter, but gosh, this scenery is amazing isn't it?
I absolutely loved chatting with these guys and getting to know them. After mom telling me each kids little nuances they have, it was so fun to see their personalities and how well their little quirks fit their personalities. They love to sing and write, play games, chat science, and joke with each other.
Maybe it's a weird thing about me, but I can feel the emotions of others. Like if Dad was dragged to a shoot and the house was complete chaos before leaving and you all show up pretending to be in a good mood.... you ain't foolin' no one in these parts! haha I can feel the emotions within your relationship, between you and your family members.... I don't know how to explain it, but it has always been something I've been able to do.
There's nothing better than capturing you and the people that mean the most in your life. Remembering the hard times and how you made it through with each other by your side. Life can sure throw us curveballs, but it's getting through it with the people that mean the most that allows us to rise above.
Sunday afternoons for this family... relaxing, watching a movie and eating good food! Spending time together and laughing with friends + family is medicine for the soul isn't it?
I loved watching these kids play and laugh together as we adventured through the trees... it was quite an adventure actually! ha I had never shot in this particular spot and there were definitely easier ways to make it where we were, but we traveled the adventurous route instead!
