A while back I put out a call for a family with three girls. I had a few sessions with three boys but never three girls. Well, it took some time, but boy it was worth the wait!
When this mom called I knew we were gonna get along great. She told me that the best photo that she has of her girls reflects REAL LIFE–one being silly, one smiling, and one crying. That is how it is when three munchkins share one roof.
Meet biggest sister A. She was a fabulous model (I could have posted 10 photos of her alone) and a worthy ring leader–hers were always the hands in the photos trying to corral her baby sister or the lips in the photo offering kisses. She and mom share the most amazing green eyes and, although I was in love with black and white for these photos, I had to print hers in color sometimes because she had knee-high PURPLE boots. Swoon.
L is the middle sister–she was a ham and a spitfire. Alternately cracking up and giving me a run for my money. She was also a great solo model. I cannot get enough of the photo of her leaning against the fence.
Baby sister S was having a day. You can see in the family photos that she was the center of attention–there are several in the proofs where all eyes are on her. She totally came around and gave up some incredible looks. In the end she took great portraits, I think that Mom might be surprised.
Then Mom brought out the secret weapon–lollipops! And everyone was stationary for many minutes. Magic lollies I think.
Mom also requested photos of the family’s hands. I love these kind of requests. And you can see that getting to a place where we could get everyone to put a hand in was big fun–leading to some great family photos of their own.
Thank you girls, I have been looking at your beautiful faces all day and had fond memories of getting to know you and felt so grateful to have so many great images to send to your mom and dad!
P.S. The awesome prophoto blog template has added all these fun ways to display images–so I am trying them out, if you have a preference don’t hesitate to let me know!
