I love big families– they have such a natural energy to them.  There is always something going on, someone to talk to, fight with, hug or just be near.  The Barksdales are definitely a great example of this– they took over the studio one afternoon this week and at any given point during the session there were 10 different things going on.  It always cracks me up when we photograph large families, just because you never know what the kiddos are going to do– finger in the nose, punch your brother, jump off the chair, etc.  It definitely made my afternoon lively! 🙂
