Till the one day when the lady met this fellow…

Did you sing the title to the Brady Bunch tune? If not, go back and start over…
Back in May I posted THIS blog entry of maybe the two most gorgeous little girls on the planet. Well, I had the opportunity to photograph the two little cuties again and this time they brought their whole family… and when I say whole family, what I really mean is WHOLE FAMILY!!! Let me see if I can give you a little family tree lesson.

These two lovely people…

Got all that? I shot soooooo many pictures during this session that I have just now weeded them down to what I’m going to edit. There were so many munchkins (8 under the age of five!!!) that I shot every setup about 15 times just praying I might accidently catch all of them looking at the camera at the same time. I know I always go on and on after every session about how nice the people were, or how good looking they were… this family was no exception, but I’m going to brag on something new this time. I’m going to brag on parenting skills. Not that I am any kind of authority on properly raising a family, but I know one thing is for sure, the Mom and Dad of this family did something right. All four of their adult children got along and laughed and joked with each others spouses, all of the grandchildren were well behaved and happy (a few tiny baby breakdowns of course). It was obvious that everyone was glad to be together and really genuinely liked each other. It seems as though that is a rare thing to find in an extended family these days. Obviously the base of this family tree has set a great example that is being carried on as the tree branches.

By the way… did anyone notice the resurrection of the glider? By special request I took the glider with me to the shoot. And yes, Otey still thinks it’s silly. I keep telling him that glider is his money train…

  • Kathy - you almost got it… it’s the woman on the bottom not the man. Three sisters, and one brother.

  • aunt harriet/mom - ok, I gotta ask, are the grown children the man on top, two girls in the middle and the other man on the bottom? Trying to match up the “real” kids with the parents (grandparents). It takes one who is connected to an extended family to know and see how important that is in another family. Hoorah for that Mom and Dad
