Default 2 Twins + 1 Cousin = A lot of fun

Today I got to put my new lastolite baby poser to the test as well as try out the Cactus v5s. I also learnt that photographing 3 young children is a whole lot harder than photographing just one!!

I failed completely to get a good shot with all 3 in, with the twins I just about managed to get something OK for the two of them....... it was much easier when I photographed them individually.

Only a 2 light setup with a reflector to bounce some light back and that's about it really.

Would love to hear any suggestions and idea's to get better.

Thanks everyone for your kind words. This really was a blast to shoot, I should have a session with a 3 week old later in the week, just waiting to confirm the day. That will call for the blue silks as it is a boy, I will also go for a black background with them.

Banksy, I love B&W but I find that parents generally go for the colour..... doesn't hurt to offer both though.

I keep thinking that 8 is my fave, but 6 has something special about it too!

Mark, first of all, "failure" should not appear ANY where in your post! Nobody else was either brave enough or dumb enough to pick a favorite, but in spite of all being perfection, I like #6. She is looking right at the camera. These kids are super-cute! Don't know what a cactus is (prickly plant), but your baby photography is just great.
