The Growing Rosa Family
Heather+Brynne-Mason-Landon-Laylah-and baby #5
Brynne, Mason, Landon and Laylah are all really camera aware, making the day much easier. Heather herself is really into portrait photography so these kids are used to having a camera pointed at them. They were able to take direction really well. It was a real perk considering they outnumbered Heather and I.
Sometimes you never know what your going to get...
With children's portraits that's absolutely the truth! I never pass up a chance to snap off a few frames during those moments when kid's do what some may think are less then desirable poses, after all they are just kids. I like the pictures that really depict their nutty, fun, pushy, demanding, loving, silly energetic and even mischievous sides. From trying to win center stage by Heathers belly to sibling instigating Laylah age 3 probably took the cake here.
Then there are those moments when it all goes right.
It's those moments I'm totally thankful for amazingly fast Cannon shutter speeds! Ha!!
Brothers: Always put a smile on my face. To have two boys a little less then 2 years apart in age is a true gift to give to each of them. I never had a sibling very close to my age and seeing kids like Mason and Landon who have one another is really special. Maybe I am partial because my boys are 22 months apart.
There is nothing like having a sidekick to play, explore and be mischievous with. As Heather and I swapped some mothers of boys stories we laughed. Sometimes it amazes me what little boys think of- and a tag team only makes for twice as clever and twice as frequent escapades.
This sequence of two kids swapping focus may be the first time I've ever posted pictures like this. They make a great unit but are amazingly cute individuals. I really like taking complementary pictures and the boys looked great in color, black & white, and this aged black & white wash... I went with the wash.
I gravitate towards warmer photos almost always. I really like a picture that has rich colors and more yellow tints then cooler pictures. Brynne (left) has gorgeous brown eyes that pop against her soft skin and light hair. Some truly photogenic kids come from this family.
Baby #5 Will be.. another Girl.
Although spelling is up in the air Sophiah/Sophia.. is due well ASAP.
With the possibility of maybe even being born yesterday since induction started at 8am Sunday.
