Congratulations to KristinSmall for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 3 votes - View Previous Winners


It's been awhile since I posted here and that is, primarily, due to moving half-way across the country late in the summer. We left our beloved home of 30 years, New Hampshire, for the big woods and lakes of northern Wisconsin! Very happy and excited for the change, but my oldest kids decided to stay in NH, so I knew that I had to get a photo-shoot with my girls before leaving. Sadly, we had to do it somewhat spur-of-the-moment, so not much time but I am very happy to have these treasures and I know the girls are, too.

Here are my 5 daughters, ages: 24, 20, 17, 14, and 10.

1.)


2.) The oldest and the youngest. They have always had a special relationship.



3.) The twins.



4.)


5.) My youngest! That is the real sky that night.



6.) The big girls. (You can see some of Mt. Ascutney in Vermont behind them.)



7.) These two came to WI with us and both joined a theatre troupe, something they can bond even more through.



8.) My favorite shot of the session! Thanks for looking and feel free to ask me anything.

Big thanks for sharing, Kristin Small!

Not only for the superb photography, but for the obvious motivation and family love that prompted it!

I got another of my rare smiles and chuckles the millisecond I opened this post.

The fifth is my favorite here. She seems to be having a grand time and the overall scenic value is very high. A nice relaxed, playful, innocent vibe.

Beautiful girls, and nice photos

It seems that they are purposely not teeth smiling in any of them. I am hyper-sensitive to this being a wedding photographer, but it is up to us to create the atmosphere for them to show beautiful smiles.

These seem like they are holding their mouths shut on many of them

Thank you! These girls are really very close and are always hugging and kissing.

Yes, that was a fun playful one by her -- she's very comfortable in front of the camera, .

We have two (much older) daughters, each with their own family. So it is always special when we get together and do family shots. Nice images, well shot even if spur of the moment.

And there is a remarkable resemblance in each of them. They definitely come from the same family! Thanks for posting.

Yes, I hear that often about their resemblance! And, yes, so great to do these photo-shoots. Now that some of the kids are half-way across the country, it will be harder and they will be even more cherished.

Oh, I so appreciate that! The last is my favorite, but of the rest, it's #4 for me, too! Will have to print that.

Any from the set with actual smiles?

They seem to be very photogenic, a shame not a real smile in the entire set.

Almost every photo has a happy, loving smile.

I mean with teeth, obviously.

As stated, they seem to be purposefully keeping their mouths shut, which looks awkward IMO.

As a wedding shooter, I guess I am hyper-sensitive about this. Once we, as the artists, get them to feel natural and joyful, the real smiles come out... even if in a candid shot.

regards

I love the soft light as it brings out lovely skin tones. Well done.

Well, they are not in a situation that naturally calls for big toothy grins. That would be unnatural for these relaxed, loving poses, IMO. I just let their expressions come naturally. It's not up to me to demand teeth. I understand that YMMV and I appreciate the feedback.
