he asked me

A little miracle occurred at our house. My seven year old came up and asked if I would do a “photography session” with him. Huh? Really? You’re asking ME to take pictures of YOU? None of the usual running away to hide as soon as the camera comes out? Um, hello. I think the answer is HECK YES.

It would be a quickie session, so we ran downstairs, and threw up some paper. I told him he could do whatever his little heart pleases. He chose lots of hats and acting silly. That’s my Barrett and I love him dearly for it.

    I love these. I have two boys and I totally understand the silliness. The hats are adorable. It’s funny that he asked you because lately my boys have been the same way. They WANT their picture taken. They want to be special ! 🙂

  12. Joy says:

    I adore him and so do my girls. I imagine there are going to be a lot of catfights over your boys with all these little girls coming to visit all the time.

  13. How sweet. Love the hats!

  14. Sandrine says:

    Oh my gosh!! How cute is this?!! I think your son needs to have a talk with my kids and say “yeah it is totally cool to let your mom photograph you, you know!!!” Those pics are priceless, it shows so much of his personality!! Way to go buddy, and big kudo points to you for going to your mom for this!!! 🙂

    I can’t believe how much that first picture reminds me of Travis. These pictures are great…they totally portray his fun, quirky and completely boyish personality. Love ’em.
