I have enjoyed these photos. I like the way you have captured the spirit of this family - especially in the eyes of the boys. I see the same determination & playfulness in the parent's eyes. My personal favorite is the photo with mom leaning on dad's back. Thanks for sharing!

Hi! I'm a FB fan, and stopped by to see these awesome photos. What emotions you've captured! I'm just getting started with my little business. Could you share what camera/lenses you use? I've started with the Canon xsi and got the extra portrait lens (50mm 1.4f USM)and just can't learn FAST enough. :) Thanks, and blessings!

Thanks, Kim!!

Jane - feel free to click on the "My Gear" button at the top of my blog. It lists my cameras & lenses and when I generally use each lens. And btw, a Rebel with a 50mm f/1.4 is a terrific combo!!

I'm a Facebook Fan as well. I love everything about this shoot. That you did it for free, how beautiful all 5 family members are, how well it captured their spirit. Your photography is gorgeous. The photo of the 5 family members looking down at the camera is lovely and I especially like the photo of the mom leaning on the dad's back. Amazing work for an amazing family!
