    CC appreciated!!!!

    I think I really messed up on this one! These are actually friends of ours and I took some pics of their kids whilst visiting them this past weekend - they live 3.5 hours drive away, which is why I did the shoot whilst we were there. Thing is it is almost impossible to work with my own kids and my dh around - it is like no-one realizes that I actually need to pay some attention to the kids I'm supposed to shoot! All the kids were interested in were getting back to playing!

    NEVER, EVER, EVER again! I was totally stressed out by the end of it. Also only time we had for shooting was around noon [​IMG]

    And please, please, please can someone explain to me WHY in the wide world anyone would keep on telling their kids to: "SMILE - Show some TEETH!" If it isn't a parent, it is one of the siblings [​IMG] [​IMG] This is not the first session where this has happened!

    Shot with the 50mm 1.4 and I LOVE it way more than th 1.8

    Anyway here are some from the session:

    5 kids...well as long as they aren't all in the photos together. So far I've only had to shoot 3 kids and THAT was a lot of work! I think you captured some really nice shots here!

    First & foremost you did a nice job on all, but the last one is my personal favorite.
    Second, you are indeed a brave soul to take on 5 kids at once, I have five grandkids and once & only once to get them all into one picture, never again.

    Thanks everyone! The last one is my favourite, too :)

    BTW, Ed, I have SIX sons, so lots of kids don't scare me... :) :)

    these are all great. I don't really care for the skin tone in the first one, he looks dead to me but everything else is great.

    I have my first big group session with 6 kids in a couple weeks and I am supposed to get at least one shot with all of them together. That is going to be an adventure for sure.
