I absolutely love photographing multiples! First time clients, the Kirchue family, came to me thanks to my lovely client, Margot Price. Danielle Kirchue (Mom) became acquainted with Margot through the Well Dressed Wolf Facebook group they belong to together. These ladies are fiercely adoring of this dress company and how beautiful their girls are wearing them. Margot mentioned to Danielle how the Kirchue girls (triplets, no less!) could take part in a Mini-Session Mixer with me. It would be a great opportunity to photograph the girls in their WDW dresses, which is what both ladies were looking for.
This session was taken at the same time as the Price’s recent family session. When we got together at the National Cathedral Bishop’s Garden, it was unseasonably cold and windy. This meant the three 4-year olds, Ava, Giuliana, and Leah had to wear jackets to keep warm. However, they coordinated so well! The girls were the spitting image of adorableness in their WDW dresses, matching jean jackets, and cowboy boots. Wouldn’t you agree?
The one challenge I ran into for this session was getting all three girls in the same place at the same time. Danielle mentioned to me in the past Leah had been the toughest to photograph. For this session, it certainly wasn’t the case. I was able to capture some nice moments with Leah smiling and interacting with her sister Giuliana. On the other hand, little Ava wouldn’t leave her Mom’s arms that day. This meant I wasn’t able to get a photo of the three girls all together, or one of her separately. I did manage to capture a photo of Ava snuggling up with her mom, though. (That photo isn’t included here.)
Danielle has opted to have a beautiful image folio made of these four images. They were perfect for showing off the adorable WDW dresses and the gorgeous little girls in them.
