Family photo fun

I had the wonderful opportunity of photographing four adorable siblings the other day. Despite the hot and humid weather, these kiddos were real troopers.

These are a few of my favorites from the day. Actually, it is more than a few; but what can you expect when photographing four little ones who are as cute as they can be?

Thanks Andee and Kori for letting me photograph your beautiful children. And to Kori and Kaci – thanks so much for sweating it out with me by hauling around a couch and handling my lenses! You two can be my assistants whenever you like. : )

You are rockin' it with the photography. I am so impressed. These really are awesome! (Way to go with the couch. I love the color and how it interacts in a natural setting.)

Alisha said...

Those are great pictures. Do you by any chance know where the turquoise skirt came from...on the little girl? I LOVE it!

Melinda said...

Thanks everyone!

Alisha - I have no idea where the mama bought it. I know she drove all over the world looking for these outfits though. Aren't they just precious?!

I love your pictures.
Where did you find that gorgeous yellow couch?
I love it.

Melinda said...

I love that couch too! I had asked the mama if she had a cushy loveseat or chair with arms to use during the shoot. She said she would have to think about that and then she actually saw it sitting in someone's garage the night before the photo session. So she went and asked if we could borrow it!! Crazy!!

Melinda said...

Jessica, I meant to write in my last comment "THANK YOU!" - that is so sweet of you to recommend me. Wish you could make it out to Hinton too....I know Jen would love to see you as well!

I love these pictures. When I first saw them I wanted to wake Gary up and show him they were so good : ) but I thought better of it since it was like 2:00 am : )

I can't wait to see where you go with your picture taking. I am really happy for you : ) Happy. Happy. Happy!

Hey, do you think you could go to the I Heart Faces conference? I usually work Saturdays during the school year but I would LOVE to go. If I knew you were going to be there that would be another motivator : )
