It's a privilege when friends and neighbors choose me to do their photos, so I loved meeting these guys at White Rock Lake this fall. Aedan is the kind of kid who takes a few minutes to warm up; he's observant and quiet and takes everything in before giving his all (not unlike me, so I appreciate that). Who'd have thought that finding an empty dumpster left open by a construction crew would be the ticket to chatter and smiles from this little guy? We got kicked out of said dumpster, but it broke the ice. It was a really fun session. This was the windiest morning, and no one complained. There was joking and laughter and easy interactions. That trio is my favorite for capturing a family, and I'm so happy to be sharing a sampling of this year's photos of my friends. Revisiting them made me smile.
