Now that the Thanksgiving feast is behind us, the holidays are in full force. If you’re not in the holiday spirit already, these adorable Christmas photos — or “Quintmas” photos — may be just what you need! Consider it the Christmas spirit, multiplied by five.
Quintuplets Zoey, Asher, Dakota, Gavin and Hollyn Driskell overcame the odds after a c-section birth at 28 weeks. When they were born prematurely in May, the quintuplets each weighed less than three pounds. They came home in July and now they are gearing up to celebrate their first Christmas with parents Briana and Jordan Driskell with their own festive flair.
Photographer Ashley Childress has captured the five babies in a series of photographs. She specializes in family and newborn photography and her bright and vibrant style was the perfect fit.
“Baby pictures are never easy, especially five of them but these little ones did so good,” Childress shared on her Facebook page.
“We saw the different personalities from day one,” mom Briana told “Good Morning America.” “It was amazing how quickly they each developed their own personality.”
In fact, Briana made the five holiday onesies the babies wear in some of the photos to match their temperament. The onesies’ clever sayings include “I’m the angel,” “I was nice,” “I wasn’t,” “I was naughty,” and “Me too.”
All is not usually calm for the Driskells.
The holiday photos capture a rare peaceful moment in the lives of the Kentucky-based family of seven. The Driskells go through an average of 70 diapers every day. Also, they estimate they spend more than $1,000 per month on formula. To help offset expenses, the family set up a GoFundMe page in April. So far, they’ve raised more than $3,000. They hope to reach $25,000.
The chaos is all worth it for this family. “I’ve been wanting a family for so long that I’m beyond excited to be able to send Christmas cards this year with my own babies,” Briana told “Good Morning America.”
Merry Quintmas to all and to all a good night!
