“What Little Boys Are Made Of” – themed session!

this is a new favorite session of mine! cameron & carson’s mama had told me all about how these brothers were 100% boy… getting dirty, building forts, fishing with sticks, catching bugs in jars (especially fireflies like they had done in the country!) and running free.  and so the vision for this shoot was born; “frogs and snail and puppy dog tails” with a bit of a holiday feel thrown in.  it felt like pure magic that evening.  before we headed to our location, donny chopped off some branches off of the tree in our backyard to build the branch fort for the boys and it was so special how even as he was setting up when we got there, cameron and carson were right in there with him with their imaginations running wild from the first second!  this shoot really shows the beauty of why we love telling a story with our family sessions, especially with the children, they just get right in there and start playing in this wonderland made special just for them.  there was hardly any posing, just waiting for the boys to get into character.  :)

i usually like to blog in the sequence that the session unfolded, however, i have to begin with one of the firefly images and then go back to the beginning so that you will be more likely to scroll all the way to the bottom… i promise it will be worth it (i just couldn’t narrow these down)!
