These three teen brothers took a break from their crazy busy end of the school year schedules for this portrait session as a gift for their sweet mom, Ashely, on the day after Mother’s Day. I’m pretty sure it’s one of the best gifts they’ve ever given her. Not because of my work, but because of their attitudes during the entire shoot.
As any teenage guys, these three like to have fun and goof off. But during the shoot, I could tell they knew this was really important to Ashely, especially because the oldest brother is about to leave for his freshman year of college. They were patient and cooperative and flashed some genuine smiles that I knew were all for their mom.
I am so thankful they are a part of my church family. I have had the privilege of getting to know Ashely through women’s Bible studies and women’s retreats, her three sons at youth group, and her husband Burt in a ministry we’ve been working on in Toloha, Tanzania. I have seen their hearts on fire for God and seen their hands serving in the community and around the world.
This is the first time I have really seen them interact all together as a family for more than a few minutes and it was such a blessing. It was such a fun afternoon – for everyone, I think!
Burt & Ashely, thank you so much for working with me again! I really had so much fun with y'all! Your guys did such a wonderful job. Guys, thank you so much for your patience and awesome attitudes during the session. I hope y'all enjoy these images!
