Three generations of beautiful women!!

Sometimes I stress before a photo shoot (well almost everytime) but this day I wasn’t worried at all.  Normally if I were going to have 3 kids under age 5 AND adults in a shot I would be worried but I knew these girls would be fun!!  Three little girls from the same parents couldn’t look more different which is why I love photographing them together.  We met at a lovely park and I proceeded to have all of them including the grandma hiking their cookies up on rocks and onto trees.  All of them were troopers and we had a great time. The shot in the tree was done with an off camera flash and my assistant holding a reflector on the opposite side to catch some of the sun coming from behind them.  I love it.

I love the newborns!!!!

I did these shots last week but the fourth of July and having the kids home for summer has made it difficult to catch up…however…I really wanted to share this little guy and his sister with you.

The parents hoped to get a shot of the siblings together but the little girl was 18 months old and ready for a nap and not really having the whole photo op scenario.  I just gave her space while trying to get her used to me.  After moving her several times and trying to see if she would participate, she fell asleep.  The possible opportunity to get both kids sleeping TOGETHER was too much and I had to try it.  After a failed attempt, the parents were able to set them together on the beanbag and we got some great shots.  Sleeping kids are just angels aren’t they??
