A Mother of 11 Children Captures Their Life, and Her Photos Are Filled With Warmth and Love

year ago

When a child is born, every mother wants to document all the important steps they take, including their journey through learning new things and seeing the world around them. Lisa Holloway, a mother of 11 children, was so thorough in completing this task that she became a professional family photographer. It’s hard to hire her today because she has so many clients. But her first models were her 7 sons and 4 daughters.

Bright Side wants to share Lisa Holloway’s best photos that turn children into masterpieces.

Eyes you could drown in

You don’t necessarily need a studio to get a good picture.

What matters is the model.

A photo with an animal is always better than a photo with a toy.

Like a bird

Or a rabbit

Or a dog!

The most important thing is to capture the mood...

...and scenery that matches that mood.

If your model is talented, you don’t need any extra equipment.

Sincere joy is the key to a great photo.

So is the right outfit...

It’s great if the models are equally interested in each other.

A fairytale-like picture is not difficult to capture.

But the model needs to play along.

The Holloway family lives in Montana, far away from big cities. The main backdrop of their photos is nature. They don’t need many props, only their imagination and a big love for their family — this is the secret to Lisa Holloway’s family pictures.

These are beautiful but when I read it, I thought I was going to see a family in day to day life! I was more excited for that
