Easter Get-together Family Pictures

My "daily" postings have become more of a twice weekly but I am still posting at least.

Last week I received the new strobes that I had ordered and then had to learn to use them since I had never tried strobes. Here is my daughter with her husband and all of the girls for their first official family portraits. The girls are Ashley (13), Destiny (8) and Allyssa (4 wks). Obviously all Steelers fans as you can tell by the second picture.

My son and his fiancee, Becky, and all of their kids (5 total) were also here (but did not want their pictures taken) so I really couldn't spend a long time shooting. We also had a couple of birthdays to celebrate (Bailey, 13 on the 20th and Krystan, 18 on the 16th). We had a house full (6 adults and 8 kids) but I think everyone enjoyed the visit. At least the weather was about 60° and sunny.

I know the lighting is not perfect in these but I don't think it turned out too bad. C&C welcome as always.

  1. Yeay! You got some lights. Looks like you are off to a promising start :o) The first one is done well with the pyramid, having the three kids on the bottom and the two adults placed above and between their heads. I would like it more if they were squished together more. Being so far apart, they loose that loving family, warm fuzzy, feel. The second capture has the heads stacked which is less pleasing to the eye. I like the unity of the sports wear, though. Cute. Keep up the good work. Can't wait to see what else you do with your lights...:o)
