I met the mother of these two cuties when we were about the age of her now oldest! YIKES! We both went to the same high school, but after that lost touch as it happens so often. Thank god for Facebook!
I was thrilled when she asked me to come out and do a session for her boys. This was the first time I was meeting her children. I also hadn’t seen her in about ten years. Good thing we stopped aging, it was as if we had just seen each other. We immediately fell into the conversation you have with a friend you see daily.
We grabbed the kids and went to a nearby park. The baby was at the end of a cold and sniffled a bit however he was in good spirits! his big brother very watchful and protective. It was very heart warming to see the interaction between the boys. I should also mention the baby got his first swing ride and push from big brother, which he LOVED!
I am not the kind of photographer who will ever tell anyone to “say cheese” to get a smile. Instead I like to ask people to talk about things they love and capture those looks as they are telling a story or remebering a detail. Children especially because in that moment they completly forget about the camera and get really into their story telling.
Can you tell who is the more intense child? Let me know what you think.
In many of these images I was very inspired by Spring and the dreamy lovie feelings it eveokes.
Spring is very near!! Stay tuned I will be announcing a very special event……
