Five children in one photo? Five kids to make look at the camera all at the same time? Time for the photographer to have a nervous breakdown? Not at all. I have taken pictures of these five kids before and I have to say it’s easier than some families of one! Not only do they listen and look at the camera, but they also take turns carrying my backpak of equipment! Mom messaged me a year ago about doing this portrait session. The weather and crazy schedules tried to stop us, but we managed to get in these photos one Saturday morning. So happy we did!!
Emma and Nicholas’s birthdays are fairly close to one another. Every year I do a two in one birthday portrait for them. I’ve been dying to do a portrait in a big sunflower field. With sunflowers being as tall as they are it’s definitely not an option for babies (unless Mom and Dad join in) and most of my “clients” are itty bitty. When Emma and Nicholas’s Mom contacted me to do the birthday portrait I knew they were the perfect fit. The sun was blaring and super bright, but there was a little section of shorter sunflowers in the shade. I couldn’t have asked a better spot. And it was right next to a barn. Score!
