I'm in love with this session. I was contacted by this client to do a cousin's session while her sister was in town with her two little girls from Texas. Such an awesome idea. As a person who grew up very close to her cousins, I would love to have something like this to look back on as an adult.
How cute are all these kids? And their outfits were so well coordinated, and they were all AMAZINGLY well behaved. One of the moms was a fellow photographer, so I barely had to direct anyone, she knew how to get their attention, helped me with posing, etc, this session was a breeze. I have to admit, I'm always a little nervous shooting in front of other photographers, but I loved this. The first mom is a previous client from a newborn shoot, and little man in blue in these pictures was one of my newborns almost a year ago. What a doll!
Before the session, I was asked if I had a bench that all 5 kids could sit on for the session, and I realized that even though I feel like I have every prop under the sun, I did not have a bench big enough to fit 5 kiddos. So I looked around and realized the perfect bench sits right in my studio. So with the help of my awesome clients, we dragged the bench out to the middle of the park, and we may have gotten a few funny looks, but the photos turned out awesome! So now my studio bench will for sure be a prop I'll be using outside more often.
"F" Cousin Session!
