I've had lots of great families this fall/winter season. I've had several large families and it's always a lot of work capturing a large family, but I enjoy every minute of it. Seeing the diversity of each family member is always so interesting to me. Each sibling is always so diverse from each other even when raised in the same home. It is fun to watch big families come together for portraits , because I can relate very well to large families coming from a large family myself. I also know that it's a lot of work to coordinate the outfits, get the guys to cooperate ( this is one of the hardest things) and then last minute outfit changes etc etc etc.. So, when I have a big family I always try to lighten the mood & get them to relax from the stress of trying to get all the babies to cooperate & get everyone together. I had a lot of help with this session, this family had a built in fashionista that coordinated their outfits like they stepped straight off of a Pinterest post :)
I recently met this family. One of the family members had a prior session with me & we hit it off immediately. So i was thrilled when Mrs. Harris called me to book a Family session for the whole crew. We setup plans for this session & from the instant the session started and I met the family in person, it felt like we had been acquainted for years. We laughed, cut up and had the best time getting the shots Mrs. Harris requested.
I always ask each family for a few fun facts about themselves. Here are a few I've gathered about the Harris Family.
Mr. & Mrs. Harris have been married 14 years. Together they have made a great home for their 4 children to grow up and enjoy their lives. Corbin, is the oldest son, He is a great provider/ husband to their daughter- in- law Amanda & the best dad to Sweet Reid and Stella. Shanna, is the oldest daughter, she will graduate college in December with a Bachelors in Science of Nursing. She is also the fashion queen who helped coordinate the families outfits. Conley the middle son, followed in his fathers footsteps and graduated from UAM in E & I School. He is also engaged to be married to Nikki in the Spring of 2018. Then there is the caboose of the family, Baylee. She will be graduating High School in May of 2018 and start college life. 2018 will be an exciting year for the Harris family, as they will be adding grand baby #3.
