I must admit, it is a rare occasion these days when I photograph children over 4 years old that do not have a baby sibling. This is because I have my hands full photographing all the newborns and pregnant mommies that I hardly have time for anyone else. These two were a special exception.
I was reminded today during this session that each age has their own challenges and rewards. These brothers, just turned 7 & 5 a month ago, are active boys that have picked up on the typical "cheezzzy grin" that I so try to avoid in older children. It took a playful mom that was willing to be silly to get the natural smiles flowing from these two... thanks mom, it was worth it!
