I've had the pleasure of capturing this family before and they've since had a new addition to their growing household. I love that I got to see how everyone has changed since the last photo session and how big the kids are all getting. The boys are still so cute and the girls are just adorable!
A whole lot of work goes into trying to make a family portrait look perfect. They aren't the easiest shoots to perform especially with little ones. As a mother I am all too familiar with how trying it can be to get everyone together - let alone get everyone to look at the camera at the same time and smile. And then there's the question of whether or not anyone was blinking or looking away, or if the little ones need their noses cleaned...the list is endless. It's enough to make a parent go a little crazy. I still can't fathom being a film photographer and not being able to preview the pictures on my camera monitor. I'd be chompin' at the bit waiting for my pictures to develop!
It's still cold in Utah. During our shoot we were in an area with snow still on the ground and one of the girls was just not happy about it. Poor baby! We tried our best to keep her warm (with blankets) in between shots but she was just not havin' it. So even though technology allows me to preview the shots, sometimes you just have one of those days where you have a kid that is just not going to put up with conditions that are unacceptable.
I felt so sorry for her! However, I was relieved and grateful that she was running around and laughing towards the end of our shoot.
Thank you so much Mulitalo family.
As always, it was a pleasure.
I love your beautiful family and appreciate the opportunity to capture you together.
