What started off as a typical wild mini session, turned out to be the start of a beautiful friendship. Linda is my sister’s minister and good friend. She’d been waiting for her youngest grandson to turn two to have the four brothers’ portraits made, and I was privileged enough to be the photographer!
These boys displayed such compassion and love for each other! When they first arrived, Nico, the youngest, was nervous about being photographed (the first time that’s ever happened ;)). The older three were so sweet and patient with him. The comfort they gave him really warmed my heart – there’s nothing like a sibling’s love. Also, a special shout out to Erin, my assistant on the shoot, who “beat me up” with a stuffed bear, causing some of these great laughs.
What topped the kindness that these boys had for each other, was the kindness I experienced at their grandparents’ house. Linda, Angela (one of Linda’s daughters), and I talked for hours. The time flew away! There was a spiritual connection between us, and I’m not just using that word because she is a minister. I know that this has started a long lasting friendship, and I can’t wait to see it grow.
I love my job and all the beautiful places that it takes me! Thanks Linda and family!
