A portrait session with a group of eight brothers and sisters is bound to be a bit of an adventure. :-) Thankfully, it wasn't uncharted waters for me, having handled a group of 10 siblings before, but still - this isn't something you do every day! Kaila emailed me about doing this shoot as a surprise anniversary gift for their parents (all together now: "awwww!"). We decided to do it in Lake Geneva while their parents were having a getaway, which was pretty funny, because their parents were staying at a hotel in Lake Geneva at the time! So the whole time we were hoping they wouldn't decide to take a walk around the lake - 8 kids in brightly colored outfits aren't the easiest things to hide. Thankfully it drizzled, so we had no need to all dive into the lake to escape detection. :-)
Lake Geneva is officially going on my favorite-spots-to-shoot list!
Their family business is selling books, so we got some book themed shots... little guys weren't quite getting the concept... ;-)
