more editing to share--the stem family

i shared a couple of these earlier and have finally finished the edits. it was so much fun to work with a larger family and i love the location we used here--the greenway offers so many nice little spots with totally different looks.

the stems especially wanted to do family photos because they just adopted tewodros (or teddy for short) from ethiopia. i quickly got a lesson in counting and a few key vocabulary words in ethiopian as we tried to get the perfect shot!

i forget what kellar was doing behind me to get them to make these faces, but it was funny!

love this one!

then we did a few of the kids individually. this is my favorite part--i love capturing the personalities of each kid on their own.

eli did a great job after we got warmed up--we shared some of our favorite knock knock jokes (my tried and true method of getting some good smiles)

teddy caught on quickly. and though this one is a little more serious, i LOVE it.
as well as this one. he is so joyful!
ashleigh is such a great big sister. we had fun finding some different poses for her.
thanks, guys! i had a great time and hope you love your pictures :)
