He just fell asleep and when he woke up…
(Photography by Brian and Janine Killian of Peters Photography)
It is very sweet to see the little babies like that I wish god can bless me too with 2 or 3 babies cause I had a mischarge in 2011 and since then I didn’t have a baby but when I see someone with a baby I am very happy and I know that god will give me those babies too.
I wish you all the babies that you want
What sweet little babies!
This is a beautiful photo! I would LOVE to have this hanging on my wall.
THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL, IT BRING TEARS TO MY EYES AND I AM A MOTHER OF TWINS.
I don’t think this is awkward , I think it’s AWESOME
love this picture
Me too…!! It is just gorgeous. I wish them all the happyness and good luck!
This reminds me of some of the Anne Geddes pictures I’ve seen done with babies. Done in photoshop or not, it’s totally cute. One of those pictures that should be kept as a family heirloom. Should be very memorable.
Pretty sure she shot each baby separately while he stayed still.
Not awkward at all.
Now, same shot in 20 years..?
This is one of the most beautiful pictures I ever see, PURE LOVE!!!!!!!
This couple was on Oprah not to long ago.
This is one of the sweetest pictures I’ve ever seen!
This was on the cover of Professional Photographer magazine recently. It’s a composite. Those babies weren’t on him all at the same time. The image was Photoshopped to the hilt.
And, yeah, an outtake of the dad getting hosed by a couple of the kids would have been great!
Thanks for the info. I was wondering about that – if it was photoshopped.
Those babies are adorable. What makes it funny is the caption and the thought of all of them peeing on Dad.
I’m shocked that they’re not getting the corporate sponsorship, but not surprised. The sponsors are eediots for not wanting to have those adorable babies sporting their diapers, eating their food, and so forth.
This picture is on the cover of the Jan 2011 issue of Photography Monthly. How awkward.
this is a very beautiful picture!!!
my fave us the baby just chilling on the dads head, he just looks at peace
OMG…..LOVE, Love this pic…The babies r absolutely adorable…Join circle of Moms and enter Dad and baby contest..I’m sure he’s a winner…God Bless
Nice attempt by the photographer but somehow he/she missed the point. Can you imagine all the puddles of pee after they picked up the babies? LOL!
your quiver is full and you are very blessed. They are beautiful!
Such a beautiful photo! I was so moved I followed their story, only to find out that they are receiving the kind of help and attention alot of families do when they have multiple births like this. The article said no corporations or businesses have come forward to help with diapers, food, transportation of six babies, etc. There’s an account setup at Chase Bank for the McGhee Family, the article said you could go to any Chase bank and make a contribution toward this family and their children.
Maybe some of you would like to join me. Happy Holidays to everyone! May the blessings of abundance touch all of us where we need it the most!
Are you saying they are receiving help or are not, because the article said they are not receiving anything. Has that changed?
They are *not* receiving help. I’m guessing that Martine just typoed.
Yeah, I’m wondering how much could be raised if everyone who wanted to help out just contributed $5 to their account?
So beautiful! My boyfriend walked in and saw me ooo-ing and aww-ing over this pic and started laughing at me. Then when he saw what I was looking at, he started doing the same thing What a blessing! (6 of em actually)
Brian and Janine are friends of mine. Also a pro photographer. To get anything NEAR this is a miracle. At first I was a little upset that it was posted here. But when you think about it, even a legit image can be a little awkward as I’m sure it must have been for the dad. I also agree that the mom should have been sans top to tie the whole family together. (maybe she didn’t want to) However, who are any of us to critique an image that is this nice and also created for a family that must be so grateful to have something that they can cherish forever.
Well most men could ran out and not be supporting the mother and child. I gotta say man keep doing what you are doing and maybe the world continue to bless you 6 time more everyday. Keep the team strong and health!
Not awkward at all. These are beautiful babies and a cute couple.
Ohhh…Can I please just take one? Okay maybe two. They’re just so sweet and beautiful.
Never feed them after midnight!
This is the last time Dad ever got any sleep.
The most awkward part of this picture is that moderators just wanted to show off what they think of as “an adorable moment” instead of something truly awkward.
this is an AWESOME pic.. thank you sooo much for sharing it’s so beautiful
If I had this many small babies, and they were all asleep on Pa, I’d be nipping out the door for some serious ‘me’ time!
I’m not sure why this is an “awkward family photo”. It is beautiful. Enjoy the sleep now Dad. It’s the last one you’ll have for the next 18 years….
The smile on that little one leaning on his/her daddy’s forehead … can there be anything sweeter than that?
I totally agree!!! That was the first thing I seen when I looked at this picture. PRICELESS!!!!
Having just had all those babies, I’m sure the last thing this mom wants to do is show very much of her skin. That also explains why she’s in the back- but it’s sort of adorable that she’s awake and looking over them and Dad is exhausted.
I think momma should be sans a shirt also (you wouldn’t be able to see anything, she would be more a part of this great experience). There would then be no distraction from all that beautiful rich brown skin with the brown background. It is a gorgeous family and may they be blessed all the days of their lives. Brown is my absolute favorite color!!!
She could have worn a tube top. I agree that the rich brown would have added to the photo.
I hate it when this happens….
I think this picture is adorable! I love it! What a beautiful family! The composition of this portrait is awesome! What better way to do a portrait if a unique family!
This photo made me laugh hysterically!!
(I have twins. Does it show?)
Oh my holy cow! They are amazing. That’s the sort of picture you hang up in a central location so it’s handy when they’re driving you over the brink.
I’m probably the only one who thinks this is really awkward. Yes, the babies are extremely cute, but I think the way they are posed just looks well…awkward. Why does the dad have to be “sleeping” without his shirt? I have seen way better composed pictures with more than one baby. It almost looks like they are trying TOO hard to make it cutesy.
Yes, you are.
oh geez! im reading the comments and i thought to myself “cute? no real awkward!” thank you for being sane with me!
You guys are not sane…just ridiculously stupid. Nothing is awkward about this picture. It is adorable. Regardless if they tried too hard or not…who cares. Why do people always want to shed a negative light on something so innocent? People in their thought process amazes me every time and you two idiots are no exception.
1. “Innocent” and “awkward” are not antonyms.
2. This picture is beautiful.
3. This picture is absolutely awkward.
4. Louise and Laura are not stupid.
5. Louise and Laura are not idiots.
6. Your grammar frightens me.
He broke the rules! ONLY TWO RULES! HE BROKE ONE!
1. Don’t get them wet
2. Don’t feed them after midnight
He got them wet, we’re doomed!
That’s the best comment so far and made me gasp for breath out loud!
Omg those babies are SO CUTE!!! And I agree… how the frack did they get them ALL ASLEEP AT THE SAME TIME!!?!?!?!?
Okay, I *only* had triplets- and they NEVER slept at the same time!!!!!
I’m not sure why this photo is on AFP, but I’m glad it is. Beautiful picture!
How in the world did they get all 6 babies sleeping at once?! Cute babies. Unique presentation, but not a bad photo.
You haven’t been around babies much, have ya?
At that age, those lil suckers sleep about 20 hours per day. The better question would be how do you get them all awake at the same time!
it’s still pretty impressive
To have all of them sleeping and still at once is very impressive!
This is stunning…..how beautiful are those babies. Lucky Mom and Dad for sure but I hope they have lots of help.
They aren’t getting any help. I read the story in the link Candice posted above and there’s been…nothing.
Unless the story is bizarre (like “Octomom”) then there’s little interest from the public anymore. So sad- high school sweethearts who have been trying for a family for 11 years. She’s leaving work to care for the babies. He’s trying to increase his carpet cleaning business. Nice people with adorable, very cute babies and they haven’t been given even a box of diapers from any diaper company, let alone college scholarships or free baby food, etc.
They’d make a much better replacement than the attention seeking John and Kate…
my goodness… the babies are so small! I love the smiles on their faces
These are the McGhee sextuplets (originally 7 babies but one was stilborn ) . Here is the photographers blog and a little post of how they made it happen. http://family.petersphotography.com/peters-blog/2010/10/18/featuring-the-sextuplets-at-the-studi.html So cute
That is an adorable picture.
I saw this picture on the news and thought it was beautiful. They should have positioned mom a little differently though. Still I think the photographer did an excellent job.
I love this picture!! But I know that my husband would be thinking “please don’t pee on me!!!” LOL Funny
That was the EXACT same thought that I had!
There is definitely a pad of some sort under the baby whose head is resting on dad’s butt. I thing the baby behind that one also has a tiny piece of a pad visible, too.
I think that the only reason it’s awkward is that there are SO MANY of them and they seem to be overwhelming dad!
The caption is priceless.
those “pads” are their feet
Heidi, I was thinking the same thing – sort of like “WT* is she talking about, PADS?” and your comment made me actually snort. I know people CLAIM to have snorted — but I’m serious. I wouldn’t kid you about having snorted. I really did. And it was all because of you.
cool story bro
