My Family!

These have been a looooooooong time coming.  The baby is nine months old and we’re just now getting around to taking a picture of all the kids together!  And after all it took to get them, it will probably be another nine months before we take another one!  3 1/2 hours of scouting for a location (only to end up in our own front yard), piling in and out of the van between shots, a few tears, several full body swaps, lots of background cloning and a mildly frustrated but exceedingly patient husband went into these two pictures.  If you have six children under the age of 10 and are in need of a photographer, I’ll be happy help… by giving you a list of colleagues.  ;)

      haha, I didn’t! Have I mentioned lately how much I love photoshop coupled with a tripod? ;) I’ll work on getting a picture of Lil’ Naomi for you. Thought about doing individuals yesterday, but just wasn’t up for it after all that went into getting two – just TWO! – group pictures! ;)

    How beautiful! I can’t believe the baby is already 9 months old. What a precious family.

    Soooo worth it! You gonna have those forever. The kids are going to be grown and still talking about it. You guys are awesome. I have a fridge too that needs a picture of you all. And I’d like to take pictures of you any time.

      Brace yourself, Manuela!!! I’m totally going to take you up on that… it might just end our friendship. Or cause you to loose copious amounts of hair, one or the other. ;)
