This morning we gathered in Winterset to capture this very busy family all together, a birthday gift for their Mom. What Mom or Grandma wouldn’t want pictures of everyone together? With 5 little ones under the age of 4 I brought in my full arsenal of helpers, birdies, M & M’s and Elmo toys. The kids did SO well. It was a little bit chilly and not ONE complaint from them. Way to go! Some of my favorite people are in this brood of people, our dear “Miss Emily” who watched and helped with our boys since 2000, her hubby Ross and their sweet baby girl Blakely. It’s been so much fun to get to know all of the Rethmeier bunch, (Livingstons and Mulders too) through the years and watch their families grow too…it was fun to be a part of a big family today. Thanks for letting me capture these moments in your lives. Here are a few shots from today.
