Is it teething time for your little one?

 

Australian photographer and mum Lucia Staykov has captured her family in this beautiful series of pictures.

 

Lucia is the mum to six children and told Essential Baby what that experience is like:

 

"There are a few challenges on the way, but we wouldn't have it any other way. I am a busy mum of six. A boy, twin boys and triplet girls. Yes, in that order."

 

 

Yep, Lucia has a set of twins and triplets on her hands and tries to capture every moment she can with them.

 

"A lot of the time they are only still for a second, as all kids tend to be. You just have to be quick to get that shot," she said.

 

 

But it seems her girls are much more accustomed to the idea of being photographed.

 

"We do play games and dress ups, so the girls think it's fun. Sometimes there's a reward if they listen well, but most times, I just catch them at play and direct them slightly."

 

 

"Before each shoot I like to prepare the scene, lighting and the clothes, and to have an idea of what I would like the outcome to look like. Also the kids need to be in a good mood, fed, and not tired.

 

 

"Working with kids is a lot of fun, but you definitely need patience."

 

 

This photography series celebrates the beauty of having multiples even if it was unexpected.

 

 

"When we found out we were having triplets after already having three boys, we couldn't believe it. But it has turned out to be a wonderful ride."

 

 

Lucia shares her pictures on her photography website, Child Expressions.
