I love working with kids of all ages and am never surprised anymore by how different kids behave. I went into Alex and Will's session ready for anything since I have a bit of experience with boys close in age.
Sometimes I feel embarassed because my two boys (ages 3 and 5). We work hard to teach respectful behaviors and still the boys are rambunctious, wild and all over the place.
I felt a sense of great relief while working with these two little guys as they were exceptionally similar to my boys. Phew! As a Northfield photographer, I have this! Plus maybe my kids are just totally normal and boys are just like this.
These two were so silly, goofy and so much fun.
My favorite part of the session (yes seriously my favorite) was when Will wanted to stand on a crate for some pictures. Okay sure! We can do that.
Well no sooner than 2 seconds into Alex's idea his brother Will came over and ripped the crate out from under his feet. I immediately thought of my boys and how they would have likely done the same thing!
Alex was super impressive on his feet, no pun intended, as he landed on his feet! No tears, no upset. They just kept going like nothing had happened.
That is just the most funny thing and I once asked my brother in law when boys outgrow the crazy, energy and rough housing. He said maybe around age 26. Well I think we both have some more time to deal with all the energy with two young boys.
They are a bundle of energy but very much fun! I loved working with your sweet boys and thank you so much for trusting me to preserve your special memories.
