A few weeks back, my friend Angie asked me about taking some updated photos of her boys. We schedule it for a time when their family was in town, so that we could also get a few photos of the extended family. All in all, six boys from newborn to teenager, and five adults.
Whoa. I was a little nervous. On the whole, boys don’t like having their photos taken like girls do. But these boys!
They had me laughing and snapping away so much, I almost forgot how cold and windy it was. Most of the time, I just chased the boys around a park (and parking lot) taking photos. I had to laugh, they’d find a spot they thought was cool (including this first spot) and yell out to me, Emily! Can we take my photo here?!
Then we popped inside to a little space Angie found, and took some more traditional family photos. Her little ones got a bit cranky towards the end — there’s only so much sitting still a kid can do at once — but we didn’t have any major meltdowns.
Angie, thank you for letting me capture your charming family! I had so much fun spending the afternoon with you all!
Spring is on it’s way! If you’re looking to get some family or high school senior photos done this spring, shoot me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll create a plan to capture your family :)
