Boys Will Be Boys - Photo Preview

Every now and then someone will ask me to take some pictures for them, and I jump at the chance.  It means I get to spend a solid hour doing something I like to do.  I get to practice my hobby and each and every time I learn something.  It's the best way for me to grow and it gives my girls a break from the camera.

Such was the case last Sunday evening when I met V and her boys down at the Marina for a mock photo session.

The weather was perfect and the smiles were everywhere.

And, this just might be my favorite photo from the evening.  Pure joy, real smiles that result only from belly laughs and hilarium.  I love the way big brother has his hand on little brother's shoulder, and how Momma is laughing with her boys.  This photo is SOOC.  I sharpened it a little for the web, but I couldn't bring myself to edit it.  I think it's lovely the way it is, it is an exact picture of the moment.

And boys will be boys and they enjoyed playing on a sculpture in the middle of the park.

Big Brother asked me if I wanted to see his silly face.  Of course I did!

I'm a sucker for pictures from behind.  So little, and such a wide world infront of them.

This couldn't get anymore picturesque...water, rocks, bridge, sailboat, and a partially toothless grin.

What a great session! I am sure she was super excited how the pictures turned out. You captured them having fun and 'being boys.' You really need to start your ouwn photography business :)

Great pictures Carol! I love the one of the three of them together...you can just see all of the happiness!

And BTW...you can practice your hobby on my kids any time. Hmmmm, I think I just found yet another reason that I'm looking forward to our get together. ;-)

That is so great that you are getting so much practice lately! I need to take some photos of the kids up here, just for fun. Those top two are my faves ... the lighting is awesome!! And of course the one of the three of them is perfect and so candid. They look great ... I'm sure V loved them ! :)
