The Kids...Freebies

Aren't these just the cutest little things? All spiffed up in their finest. I find them adorable.

These young ones look sort of put out, as kids are when you want to take their picture. Still you can tell they came from an affluent family. Their shoes and their clothes look brand new.

These look like two sisters sharing a family portrait. I like how all the kids have white on. Pulls the whole picture together.

I wonder if these two were sisters, mother and daughter, or an early marriage producing one child, then another marriage producing the other children. Or.. maybe just a sister sitting in because she is family. I so wish I could find out more about these lovely photographs. Instead, I make up stories in my head about them.

Another elegant an affluent family. I love the boy on the right holding a book. Intelligent also!

I had a little time tonight while watching Polar Bear- Spy in the Cold with the boys to upload some photographs for you. Sometimes it is nice to just hangout with the kids. They inspired this weeks freebies - Mothers and their kids. Hope you take a moment to just enjoy your family. Simple moments are the ones you remember the most...

Wow, these are wonderful. As a portrait photographer I really like looking at these. If we still took such a long time exposing our images I wouldn't have to work so hard for smiles but my job wouldn't be as much fun either. :) I have to wonder if men then, like today, hated having photographs taken. Where are the fathers?

The father's and men did like to have their picture taken, but they worked long hours. Going to a photographer's studio was much easier for the women and children. Many had their pictures taken on Sunday. Most men portraits you see are engagement photos, a single portrait for his beloved, marriage, or the occasional portrait with the family. I love the family ones.
