Okay, I couldn’t resist using “the Jackson 5” in my title. Not 5 family members total, 5 kiddos PLUS a VERY patient mom and dad. This was more of a lifestyle session, a type of photography aiming to portray real-life situations. First of all, you don’t get more “real” than this. 🙂 I love a photo where everyone has a different expression. During this session, I learned that somebody is a poser and loves playing softball. Somebody hates bugs sooo much that big, tall grass scares her. 🙁 Somebody loves to throw rocks and turkey hunt with his daddy. I think I may have just given that one away. Darn. Somebody is a future actress and a lover of dogs. Somebody is a caretaker, a leader, and a lover of laughing. Somebody is the most patient father and never ONCE lost his cool during our two hour shoot. Somebody is a nurturer, nose wiper, and coordinator of clothing. 😉 AND, we actually had a 8th Jackson, b/c grandma came along. I see where dad gets his patience b/c she clearly taught him.
When we booked this session, mom wanted non-traditional studio dance pictures taken of her 4 girls in their recital costumes. We timed it around sunset and, gee, could these girls look any prettier?
“Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
