Best friends and other things – Chicago child photographer

sibling photography

When I was a new mom and my boys were much younger, I met a mom who’s boys were older than mine but about the same difference in age as my boys. I noticed her boys playing in the park together. They were laughing, playing tag and getting on like the best of pals. Her and I struck up a conversation and I asked her about the age difference ( 2 1/2 years) and if her boys always got along so well. Her reply was perfect and is seared into my memory. “They’re best friends and mortal

Summer has gone by in a whirlwhind of travel (more on that later!), family, friends, new clients, and repeat clients. And before I knew it my boys were back at school.

babies and brothers

babyphotography

what a difference a year makes! just last year around this time this sweet boy was in my studio and now he’s back with his new little best friend! i’ve said it before that i have a soft spot for brothers and these two were a perfect example of why. sweet and loving, but with a touch of rough and tumble. hugs and kisses, but with a poke in the eye and yank of the ear. years ago when my two were younger and it seemed like they were fighting each other more than they were loving each

i heart boys

boys

not that i don’t love girls, too!  but, being a mom of two boys, i get boys.  i get that they love to run in the big open space of the studio, i mean really, they can’t help themselves!!  i get that a sweet hug between two boys can quickly turn to WWE-like wrestling.  i get it. i’m ok with it. especially when you see the smiles that it brings on . . .
