Families come from all different walks of life! This family is no different. These single mothers wanted to have children so decided to have a family through a sperm bank. Their children each look just like their mothers and are totally adorable! I am not sure how they found each other but the mothers did some research and found the kids half brother and sisters. They had a reunion so the kids could get to know each other as they grow up and have someone they can depend on. Each family lives in separate states and knew Gatlinburg was a very central location for everyone to gather to.
The day of the photos, I met up with them at their cabin and we originally were going to do it there, but the mothers wanted the kids to play and loved Mynatt Park. So we headed over to the park. I cracked up when photographing these kids. They each sang “CHHHEEEESSSEEE!” It was so loud but it worked and they smiled!
Towards the end, we decided to have them run and burn some energy off, but wanted them to stand together. They were bribed with gummy snacks to stay still. I LOVED the photos I got!
Thank you so much for having me be the photographer for this special event!
