'cause three wasn't enough of a challenge

So why did I try to photograph FIVE kids ranging from age three to five?  Oh, I know.  Cause I figured that if I was successful with FIVE that it would make up for my shortcomings with just three?  That must be it.

Or is it that I secretly love to torture myself.

Whatever the reason may be, I took 70 pictures of this quintet.  SEVENTY pictures in a brief shoot on Saturday.  And the best one I got was from the back.

Yeah, 'cause three wasn't enough of a challenge.

Even from the back, they are pretty darn cute though, aren't they?

Yes, it is DARLING! Gee, I have enough of a problem finding separates in the correct size for ONE kid! How do people match this many kids' clothes? I'm amazed!

I absolutely love it! I think it should be framed!! I love the way Caleb's feet are literally off the ground!

Precious. And perfect! Maybe framed it would make a perfect Mother's Day gift for your mom, Kristi! Your mom must be in heaven right now with her 5 beautiful grandchildren!

That is hysterical!! Well, at least we all know that we all have the same problem!! Photo shop anyone?! Move that head to the pose, transpose that smile onto that face..move that hand out of your brother's face...ahhh, it's a good thing.

Is that your kids with your new niece and nephew?

I love it. I know what you mean. We have problems trying to get my kids to pose for a pic so I bribe them with candy, park, chips, whatever sometimes! LOL

I really do love this running pic though. It is cute to see kids holding hands.

This is a GREAT photo! So what if it took like SEVENTY tries to get it!! ;) I love their 'matchy' outfits. A super-duper cute bunch of kiddos if I do say so myself!!

Have a blessed week! <><

Fabulous photo! I am starting to think that most pictures of kids from behind are pretty darn cute - it's also perfect, how they are girl, boy, girl, boy, girl...leaves room there for another boy don't ya think? Love the coordinated, matching outfits -grandmother must be in seventh heaven. This is definitely one for framing. Your shortcomings with three, try mine with two...

Well, I know you'll laugh that I'm saying this, but I happen to LOVE it. For obvious reasons.

This would be awesome in black and white, supersized, and framed. A great mothers day gift for you and Traci. Tell Ian to get to work.

Miss you all, Michelle P
