When this mom contacted me last fall, I got to admit that I felt very excited, but a little bit nervous. She has five children with ages ranging from 10 – 19. So the session will include a total of 7 people. Up until that point I have only photographed families with 3 children at most. Haha! Needless to say I was super stoked but definitely felt the challenge was on me.
We met on a very cold fall cloudy day in North Bend. They showed up and gosh, I was amazed by how beautiful they all were! Not only that, the mom and dad were the sweetest couple, the kids were all so respectful and just all-around very nice kids.
I know some photographers find it hard to photograph older kids, because they are not as “adorable and cute” as toddlers. But I actually love photographing 10+ yo kids as well because there are so many things you can do together with them! I got them to dance together, to hug together. And everyone had a great time and it was a bliss.
