Family Photos/ Jacksonville, Florida
These family photos were taken in Ransom Canyon a little oasis outside of Lubbock, Texas. The father was actually out of town on business so the focus on this session was the six children. I had heard that photographing large families was a piece of cake. Well, if they are anything like this family then it’s true. The kids were not only so well behaved but they were just so loving toward each other. They took care of each other. They carried each other, they were concerned about each other and they truly loved being together. I learned that the oldest began learning guitar from his father, then he self taught himself and is now teaching his sister. Do you remember when I talked about how I always wanted an older brother in this session? Well, the photos of the oldest brother teaching the oldest sister how to play guitar also reconfirm that wish for me.
I mentioned to the mom that it would be fun to bring things that were special to each of the kids to make the session more personal. They did a great job and I just learned so much more about the children. There was a dog named Christmas, the kids are musically talented with the guitar and the trombone and a favorite play dress was worn that had gotten soiled at the fair (and not by dirt)! I had mom take a few solo portraits as well. I can’t believe she has six kids– she looks so young. I had to be so selective with which photos to share because with six kids there were a lot of photos to choose from. Please enjoy. To
