I was wrong...


manly men
I thought my blue eyed curly blonde headed
little girl last week
was the definition of
perpetual motion
but
I was wrong
here they come...brothers

because
these two little boys
took perpetual motion to a new level
and
I loved it
~~
this family is not just full of fun and laughter and life
they honestly shine
and
with a baby arriving in december
their world is going to get even brighter



are you looking at me ?





thank you h and a and h and h
for once again trusting me with your family photos

  2. Such fun family pictures! I like the setting for all of them...the black lab, the genuinely happy faces! I really like the variety of shots...especially the one where the little boy is partially out of the picture! Very unique!

    I love the seeds that have collected on the shoulder of the young man in red....so very real and puts motion in the photo...even more than they did!

  7. These are some great family photos. That first and third photo, my favorites. I also like that black and white of the smallest boy. The one of the parents by the tree showing her belly is adorable. Looks like great fun was had by all. Have a wonderful day.

  14. Beth, these are all wonderful, but I am especially drawn to the first one. The light in that, the tones, and the sense of the boys' personalities really make that one outstanding. I love your work!

  16. These are spectacular photos. I especially love the "brother" shots. I have two little boys, 10 mo. apart in age, and I guess I have a little soft spot brother pics.
