I've got to say I'm almost ready to give up on the 5 kids/52 project. I started trying to ease up and not get them all in one shot, try for interactions and maybe occasionally individual portraits but...it's hard. So hard. I was so frustrated about it tonight as the sun was setting (thankfully with the clocks forward it is still light now when the eldest gets home from practice) and I herded them outside and just said 'run around already.' The teenager was mopey so I shouted 'group hug!' and that was it. Then the teen ran for the hills, two kids started fighting, somebody cried, and we went in for baths and bed. The end.
