Finishing Up

We have been trying for a couple of weeks to finish up Sharon's maternity pictures.  We wanted to get her husband in a photo or two (since he had something to do with it!!)  AND we wanted to get the other four kids in also.  As always, the shoot never ends up going exactly like I plan, but "that's OK, we are flexible" (right Owen??) 

When I showed up, all the kids were at an event at school and were going to be a little while.   Bill needed a few head shots, so we took some of him first.  This is one of my favorites:
 
Next, their youngest woke up but was not at all thrilled to see me or my camera...
  
But he warmed up quickly, a lollipop or two later!  We still have evidence of one on the face...
  
Then we got a couple more of Sharon - with the necklace. We have plans for another picture similar to this when the baby is born.  Check back in a few weeks!!
  
Next, their little guy showed me his belly...
  
...and then where the baby is in his mamma's belly
  
Well, since I had been nice and made friends, this handsome little cherub let me take a few pictures of him before the rest of his siblings got home.  He is so sweet I could just gobble him up!!!
  
  
Alright, so we knew we had about 7 1/2 minutes of full cooperation from kids, so we did a traditional family picture...
  
...a not-so-traditional family picture...
  
...and a "hands on" picture.  And then kids were free to move about the household.
  
I had to put this one in - in honor of valentine's day (and because of your love for words, Sharon!)
  
 
 
Thanks so much Engler's!!  You have a beautiful family and I can't wait to see that new addition!!
