My good friend (really good friend, as in friend since preschool) called me to see if I could do some family pics for them, and I was so excited. We don't get to see each other very often, which is silly because we actually don't live that far from eachother. However, she has 6 kids, and I have 4, and life is so dang busy! Anyway, she has the sweetest kids! I knew they'd be well behaved, and cute as can be. The day was CLOUDY, and I was a little worried, because it was DARK... however, I was able to use my new off-camera flash set-up and I was excited. I'm still learning to use it, but I knew they would be okay with me adjusting and re-adjusting settings. We're friends, right? They were awesome, and her gorgeous little 7-yr-old princess (or should I say, model) was more than willing to sit and pose while I got things set up. Seriously, you should see some of her poses - I was dying!!
You may have seen this one on Facebook:
But there are so many more - and the rest of the kids were awesome too.
This little guy is totally my five-yr-old's long lost twin. Seriously, they are so much alike!!
And this little princess? She actually told me that she loved me! Made my day :)
They have a brand new baby boy, and we tried to get some of JUST him, but it was getting SO COLD outside, that we took him in for a few minutes. He wasn't real happy about that, though, so I'm hoping to go back after Thanksgiving sometime and get some of just his sweet little self. But we did venture back outside for a quick family portrait. We had to hurry, because we didn't want him to freeze!
And all the kids! Sweet little sis was pretty much DONE at this point, and baby was getting cold, but aren't they such a good lookin' little bunch? I had a great time with them.
Aren't they such a beautiful family? SERIOUSLY! I just love these guys :)
