My friend Michelle knew she’d have a lot of their family in town for her son’s graduation, so she contacted me to take some family portraits. It was a very sunny day, but with all of the rain we’ve been getting lately, I was just glad it wasn’t raining! The two youngest kiddos did so well! It can feel stressful being the parent of a small child for large family photo sessions. Maybe they aren’t looking right at the camera in every photo… and maybe they aren’t smiling when they are. But they are in the photos and a part of the memories. And we still got some good photos! Another obstacle was the wind! I made sure to take plenty of photos and we occasionally took quick breaks to smooth out hair or tuck it behind ears. Because we were working with a large group and small children, we decided to stay put in one location (in front of a gorgeously green tree in their yard) to make it easier to transition between photos and to maximize our limited time before the younger kids hit their limit. And of course there were leftover graduation cupcakes to enjoy at the end!
