“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched.
They must be felt with the heart.”
- Helen Keller
My two little monkeys. They are the best of friends, at 5 1/2 and 3 1/2 years old. They do all of their adventures together, get in trouble together and pretty much spend all of their time together. Being brothers as they are, sometimes they fight too, but they don’t stay mad at each other for too long.
I wanted to capture their relationship before they grow too much older (seriously, why do little kids grow up so fast?!) and I was inspired by a photographer friend to use a bed as a simple playground of sorts.
These are not technically perfect images by any standard. My goal was to capture more of them being with each other and not worry so much about technical settings and composition.
They were silly at times (I love the way he still holds his feet like babies do).
Laughing so hard at times.
And sometimes they were a bit serious.
There were hugs at times.
And some rare moments of meditation (big brother’s idea and little brother followed).
I think this one is my favorite.
And a little slideshow of all my favorite ones:
I showed them this and they said they’d like to do it again.
