When you get a bunch of kids together, in this case a bunch of cousins who live several states apart and are therefore all keyed up when they get to see each other, they just let loose. This is good news for me since the kids have never met me before and all of a sudden I'm sticking a camera in their faces. Once we got the nice and neat formal portraits they quickly forgot about me and just played. I spent a couple of hours with them. I got to see what each kid's personality was like. They cycled through silliness and tantrums. In the end the families will walk away with not just a pretty portrait of them all together on their vacation, but also documentation of what these kids are like at this point in time.
