If you give a boy a stick {he will give you a smile}

These two little sillies were so fun to take pictures of.  They started out very serious - they didn't want to make it too easy ;)  But, Give a boy a stick and have an apple hunt - and they will give you a smile.  They came into their own shortly after a brief warming up - And the pictures could not have been cuter.  As I was editing I kept thinking to myself, 'how is she going to pick 1 pictures for her Father's day gift?"  Well, after some discussion - she went with a framed collage of them.  It was adorable!
Because this session was for a Father's Day gift, I was keeping it a secret - I am SO GLAD that I can post this session now because these two...  My oh my!  As you scroll, you will see what I mean.  The cool part was to actually photograph them.  We all had a good time.  You can't fake this much cuteness!  The boys just acted like boys - and I am so happy I got the opportunity to capture it.  Thanks Jonanne - the boys are both sweet and adorable! 
Very soon they will be added to several sections in the Gallery.  



Cat's out of the bag.... {session reveal}

I don't get that saying...  Cat's out of the bag??  If a cat were in a bag, I am pretty sure we would know it...  Anyway, onto the important stuff...  and by important I mean the adorable session I am now allowed to share.  

The folks that know me, know that I can't do surprises!  I get so excited, that I ruin it - they get gifts early or I go on and on about the fabulous gift they are going to get... and then I talk myself into telling them what it is.  HOWEVER, this surprise I was keeping, kinda...  I got to share it with people I work with and my family, but they were NOT allowed to breathe a word about the top secret Father's Day Photo Sessions.  But, I received a text yesterday that said, it was no longer a surprise - She had to share the beautiful pictures with her husband.  Phewww....  NOW I can share!  Thanks Nicole!  I was having a hard time containing myself!! ;)

Justin - Happy Father's Day, early! ;)
