White Tree {My big Sis's Photo Shoot}

I haven't done a "White Tree" post in awhile, so I thought today would be the perfect day! A few months back, I asked my sister if she would let me take some pics of her precious family. Since I am in the learning/practicing stages of my photography endeavors, I thought a big family would be a challenge. My sister has six kids (one of my nephews is not pictured). We didn't try to make this a big deal; we just wanted some sweet pics of her and her children. Here are some of the results! 

These two are very similar, but at a recent wedding I went to, the photographer was taking pictures through a leaf. I thought it was kinda neat, and I wanted to see how it would turn out using the fall tree branches.

So here are five of the six kids! Aren't they good looking? Ok, I'm a little biased. But, seriously! Now I do have a question for any of my photographer friends out there: how in the heck do you keep the attention of kids during a large family shoot like this? If you can tell, I almost got it in this one, but my darling nephew refused to just look at me :)

This horse also refused to get out of my pictures, but the kids actually love it in this one!

Individual Shots:

The twins (they don't get their own names; they are just referred to "the twins"). But if you really want to know, their names are David and Nathan! 

This beauty is Kadie. How gorgeous is she?

This is Trenton. He thought he was a super model. Seriously, I have like 20 shots of just him posing. 

This is Abigail. She is the most precious little girl!

Brothers :) If only they got along like this all the time!

They look so happy... 

And lastly, my gorgeous sister, Tiffani! Not only is she a wonderful sister, but she is a wonderful mother! 

I hope you enjoyed these pics! Like I say every time, I am still learning and I would love your comments! The biggest challenge I had with this shoot was trying to manage that size of a family. One-on-one shoots are much, much easier! Posing six people was a little challenging, but I still have a ways to go. 


  1. Your pictures look awesome! Great job!
