Boys All Around!

This family of 6 was so much fun to, uh, capture.  Image lots of testosterone, antsy boys who didn’t want to stand still and the littlest one kept giving me the biggest boo-boo face because he stepped on a thorn.  Poor thing!  But no worries, they all were sweet as can be.  I found this great wooden wall and lined up the boys, and boom! a rustic background for everyone to line up against.  Honestly, this shoot was a lot of fun!  Thanks Lisa & family!

The littlest brother couldn’t stand still (and you shouldn’t be expected to when you are 4 years old.)  However, I needed to get at least one shot with them all together, not moving, so I can get them all in focus.  I was running out of options (and time.)  So I had them all line up against this awesomely weathered barn door.  Boom, I got about 2 minutes where they actually all stood still.  It was heaven-for me at least.  Also, I got the dad to actually look at the camera.  This was no small feat.  See 2nd to last comment below to get the full explanation of that.

Man this is so dang cute!  A flower for mom.

This shot above is perfect because the dad told me he does not like his picture taken and would not look at the  camera.  I was able to get the entire family, some looking, some not, and it looks so natural.  LOVE IT!

This last shot is so perfect because they are all focusing on the youngest, who, with his big personality and off-the-charts energy, gets most of the family’s attention.
