Is 5 Offspring A Full Quiver?

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, January 3, 2008

Ok let’s be upfront,… I have 5 sisters and 1 brother.  But we live in an era when it is not as common as once to have larger families.  Once upon a time there was a terminology that talked about having a quiver full.  Often wondered how many makes up a full quiver?

But hat’s off to this family – they all seem to get on really great.  Certainly they  all connected fabulously during the photos. Well I suppose you would when you have 14 kids between them,… and probably still going.  Thing is the grandparent’s were extremely popular with the grandchildren.  Now that does say something.  Relational.  That’s what it is.  Gotta have it.

Be that as it may, this extended family shoot has been fascinating to process up. Tonight I took a bit of a break and did up two pics – the guys and the girls.  In a day or so I’ll do them with their respective partners.
