K family : portraits | ft wayne, indiana family & portrait photographer

Photobucket
I really love this family--maybe because they're a large family [13 kids!].
maybe because I had fun laughing with them.
maybe because they like the movie Tangled [like me]. ;)
maybe because they're 'real' people, and don't have it all together [like me].
maybe because their family is so similar to mine.

regardless of the many reasons, I like these people...and had such a fun time
meeting/hanging out/watching movies/laughing/eating/shopping when I was in Indy back in September!
I met Kelsey (the oldest--love that girl!) at a piano course I took last summer, and afterwards started letter writing,
and then once I got my own phone, texting her regularly.
Since the beginning of this year I was hoping/planning to go to Indiana in September,
 and am so thankful God worked it out that I was able to go!
I got to spend 4ish days with Kels and her family....and it was awesome. :)
While there I got to take family pictures [eeek!] for them....
and not many photographers can say they've photographed a family with thirteen kids.
[I mean, cuz thats a lot of kids, people.] :P
The largest family I had done beforehand was three kids, and when I told Kelsey that, she said
 "oh its no big deal...only 10 more."
believe it or not, this was seriously one of the easiest family shoots I've ever done...
and I've decided I really love photographing families--and especially large families--
because everyone helps everybody out, and I don't feel like I'm the only one trying to keep track of everyone. ;)

so all that said, meet this lovely family--with tons of girls.
with seven brothers, I was about in culture shock being at their house...
it was hilarious because they were talking about what to wear for family pictures,
and it was like a huge discussion with multiple family members about the different colors/outfits they could wear.
and I was thinking, "we never talk about what to wear in my family.."
 because Mom and I would just decide what people would wear and get it all ready.
oh, and also people were asking for help doing their hair...and I was thinking
 "hair? we never have to wait on hair at my house..." haha. :)

hope you enjoy this picture-filled post, and have a fabulous weekend!
