I have just one little boy at home, and even one little boy can be a handful at times. But I'm going to stop saying things like that since photographing a family a few weeks ago who have 6 children under the age of 8, AND this wonderful family of four brothers who I photographed really recently.
Parents like this deserve a medal in my opinion and should be awarded one, like, every day! I absolutely love photographing large families because each and every child is so different. It really keeps me on my toes and I love getting to know them and working out what kind of approach to take with each child. What will make one kid laugh their heads off will make another look at you with a completely blank expression - I love the challenge.
This family were an utter joy to work with and yet again I had the pleasure of photographing such polite children who listened carefully to my gentle instructions and did everything I asked with ease. It's so lovely when I meet kids like that, and I can't tell you how much easier it makes my job. I really couldn't be happier with this series of photos.
