11-on-11 It’s All About The Love

{Michigan Portrait Photography | Michigan personal projects photographer | Child Photography Ann Arbor Michigan}

Here I am again, month four of our 11-on-11 project, featuring 10 personal images and one self-portrait.  I always take my camera everywhere and seem to have a bit of a problem limiting these to JUST 10, since I have a billion, so I decided to give myself a theme to cull my options a bit.

So, this month, I’m featuring my children looking like they love each other cuddling and loving on one another like they always do.  I love watching the affection between the pairs, and even how the relationships are unique for each set of two in the family.  Sometimes ( and this is very, very, very rare of course) they fight, but it’s obvious that they share a deep love and connection for one another, and I’m glad to showcase a bit of that here.  It’s a special post, too, because hubby snuck into a few of these, and all my five kids are featured sharing the love.

I am definitely hoping that next month’s 11-on-11 will feature pictures not taken in the pouring rain….perhaps a little green, maybe a flower or two, yes, that would be wonderful.  Stay tuned for the next edition.  Until then, you MUST go check out the incredibly awesome Utah photographer, Summer Murdock Photography, for a major treat for the eyes!

I love these next ones because I actually caught these two liking each other without even telling them to.  Nothing like electronics to bring a family together….

And, here I am, once again.  I confess I didn’t snap this picture, but I did edit it (a lot, ahem).  I had a chance to meet up with several area photographers and we traded head shots.  Lots of fun!
