Catchin' Up with the Esplins

My friend Susan has 8 kids. She had 6 boys first and then finally 2 little girls at the tail end. She asked me if I would do the kids "school" pictures this year and in time for Christmas. We were kind of on a rush schedule and it ended up being a very snowy day when we were finally able to get together. But we stood under the eaves of an old barn and got 'er done.

I thought they turned out great considering it was snowing like crazy and a rush job. Here are my favorites of the kids from youngest to oldest. (Christopher, the second to oldest is on a mission for our church, so we'll have to catch him another time.)

Susan had told the kids that all she wanted for Christmas was pictures so they did a great job cooperating and they made their mom happy. What a great bunch.

Oh, and I couldn't resist, it seems to be the theme of the week - a cute little girl hugging a kitty.

Thank you so much. Talk about poor working conditions. You were amazing and so flexible to work with my family. When Christopher gets home we are going to have a family picture no matter what. Thanks again for the beautiful pictures.

Ann, I just found the comment you left on my blog. Thanks so much! It's funny, because I think the same about your photos! Some days I think my work just looks blah. :) Anyway, everything you post always looks so amazing!
