I could get used to shooting these young men, kinda like a bridal without so much fixing of a dress ;). Although I do love my brides and the girly time they give me. This young man has been a major part of our lives for quite a few years. When I married Mark I left my little brother behind to wander the states. I had helped quite a bit in caring for my little brother and I felt a loss when he was no longer part of my daily life. It was so nice when we moved to Hampton, Va and this young man decided to let us be a part of his life and let me big sister him even though he already had a few older sisters who were very much in love with him. He was about 12 then and full of questions and spunk. Over the years he has taken on several roles in our family as a mother’s helper, babysitter, card playing buddy and best of all friend. We are very grateful for the influence he has had on our boys and the lesson’s he has taught us in how to raise them. He was the best guinea pig ever. We are very proud he has decided to serve his church on a two year mission and pray he stays safe and continues to learn and grow with the same passion he has always shown!
