From the moment these boys answered the door when I arrived at their photo shoot, I experienced fullness of life paired with contentment from being together. We took these photos in November, and looking back over them tonight made me recall the boys excitedly chirping while Mom and Dad filled me in on details of the life and times of their favorite two little guys. It's the only session where I've had a kid recite the periodic table of elements without batting an eye. We read books. We see-sawed. Jokes were told. Secrets were exchanged. All of the things I love about photographing a family were represented at this session. We had real moments and genuine connection. I witnessed laughter and love and busy boys and attentive parents. I caught a glimpse of the magic that is uniquely the Baker family's, and in taking their photos I got to bottle some of that magic up in the form of photographs. I hope they provoke memories of any given Sunday during this fleeting season of childhood as these boys grow up. I hope they show them to their children and tell the stories of their boyhoods. Reviewing the gallery to make selections for the blog made me want to say thank you to this family for letting me witness the good stuff of their life. It truly is a privilege. It makes me excited for the stories to be told in 2015.
