Growing Boys

Honestly, the greatest compliment for a photographer is a client who comes back time after time, and this is one of those families. This is the third time I've photographed them and I absolutely love the results. The first time I photographed them was just over two years ago. Noah was 23 months old and such an adorable toddler with the most handsome serious faces and silly smiles, and Zach was just a tiny peanut in mommy, they'd only just found out they were expecting. The second time I photographed them Noah was losing his "baby look" as he got so big, and Zach was almost 6 months old and starting to sit up on his own. We had so much fun with two young boys :)

This time around was so awesome! Noah just turned 4 years old and he's long and lean - a little boy. Noah plays t-ball and he's so silly and funny. And OMG is this kiddo handsome or what?! I couldn't get over just how incredibly beautiful this child is! Equally as adorable is 20 month-old Zach. Zach is definitely a wild child! He knew what he wanted - and sitting for a picture was NOT one of those things :) That meant my shutter needed to be FAST to capture him when he'd glace over at me, and I got to chase him all over the place :) But as much a wild child as Zach is, I absolutely love the shots of him playing. He'd get completely lost with his toys and I loved the innocence in those shots. So fleeting....

We had such a fantastic time as we played and climbed trees, and we found tons of ladybugs and had so much fun with them. We got such fun family pictures too! Since Zach was being a wild child, Scott decided to hang him by his leg for a couple family pictures. PERFECT! Now when Zach is 17 they can show the pictures to him and tell him the story behind them! :) I love how much Noah and Zach love other. Their bond is so beautiful, and I'm so glad that at the very end Zach agreed to hug Noah for a couple pictures - and without any prompting Noah went straight to kiss Zach. Swoon!

Ali & Scott - as always, it's so wonderful to see you. Your family is so beyond stunning! Noah and Zach are getting so big and they're SO handsome (those lashes!!). Thank you for continuing to trust me with your precious memories, it's a privilege. - Hugs, Brenda/Harbor
