Today was probably my last fall photo shoot before the snow flies this year. I think we caught the fall leaves just before they all fell to the ground. We headed to a spot very special to this family who spent many summers out there. The “boys”, truth be told are more men then boys, but really, to this mom they are her boys. This shoot probably had to be one of my favorite to do. The “boys”, clearly their mom’s apple of her eye, and dad’s pride and joy are really nice young men. I can’t express how awesome it is to see a family so connected to each other and how nice it is that boys past their childhood come out for photos.
As I sat here editing the images, I kept reflecting on my family. As the mother of a boy, I think I caught a glimpse into my family a few years in the future. My son is almost three, and these “boys” are men, but I constantly had flashes ahead to when my son’s a young man, and hope that we will be as connected as this foursome are to each other. I hope this is us when my boy is a young man.
At the end of the session I chased the boys away to do a few images of their parents, clearly still very much in love after many years together. How awesome to see that ! I’m partial to the images of them too, again…. hoping this will be me and my husband down the road.
Enough rambling… here are the images…. I sincerely hope we’ve accomplished what you guys were hoping for !
