This was a fun one. I’m pretty inexperienced when it comes to taking family photos with more than one or two kids, so the Berthelson’s five children provided a needed crash course, as well as a lot of frenetic energy. It was a blast. They also had some fun ideas for picture settings. The fire truck in the photo above is actually a billboard for a local pediatric dentist, but I thought it would be perfect to give it a personalized treatment.
Here are a couple of my favorite individual shots.
Each of the children brought one of their favorite items to pose with. I loved how representative their props were. This picture may have been my favorite of the whole shoot, with the girl’s sweet expression and the little ballerina’s reflection appearing in the music box’s mirror.
