What another great family. I have gotten to know this family over the past year or so, and they are one awesome and FUN family. Their son is one of my son's best friends. We had such a fun shoot, they were so fun and loved doing the "serious" pictures, but wanted to be silly as well. 

The mom just kept saying how she just wanted pictures of everyone, as her children get older this might be one of their last family pics all together.

They are a beautiful family. 

Photography Tip: I usually prefer sitting poses (especially with a large family) but if you shoot a family standing, have people do different things with their arms, legs, body. Crossed arms, hands in pockets, have someone leaning against another person, have arms around a couple people, etc. Standing pics tend to look "stiff" in my opinion, but there are ways to make it look more "intimate".

The clouds were rolling in during this photo shoot and the wind started to get stronger (and colder). We shot fast. :) 

This is another beautiful family that we love very much. We have seen their family grown from three kids to five and they are adorable. 

We don't get to see them as often as we used to, but whenever we get together it's like we see each other every day and they are definitely in our "dear friends" category. 

I loved the mustard color they chose...mustard is another color that I find photographs really well. 

Photography EDITING Tip:
I have recently learned how to "swap heads". This has come in very handy, especially with kids faces.
