a royal family

this past weekend, i had the pleasure to meet and photograph the kings.  this lovely family includes 5 children.  yes, you read that correctly - 5!  their ages range from the 16 year old high school junior to the 7 year old elementary student.  2 boys and 3 girls.  all of which were polite, fun and different.   they shared with me some of the ups and downs of a having a big family...the nonstop chaos, the over-the-top fun holidays, the sharing of bedrooms, the babysitting, the constant companionship.  what impressed me most about this brother/sister crew was the camaraderie.  i saw them support and help and communicate and just like one another.  they were connected despite the age and personality differences.  take a look at this good looking bunch...

and btw, i think mrs. king deserves a supermom award.  i mean 5 kids!  she has one busy job :)
