Being a mom to a little boy myself, I have to give some huge props to this mama for raising 4 boys all on her own. Some days I can barely handle the one I’ve got, so being able to handle 4 with such love, kindness, caring and patience is something to be very, very proud of.
These little guys are so awesome, though and so much fun to be around. Like all little boys, they love their mama, they love to wrestle and climb, and will spot the tiniest of toads sitting on the ground making for a temporary pet while at a photo shoot. Gotta love it!
While aiming to get a simple portrait of each boy, I couldn’t help but just capture the normal interactions between them as a family. I did manage to get at least one good portrait of each of them, but I’m simply in love with the photos of them…just being them. Loving their mama. Wrestling and climbing. Caring for their pet toad.
