So I admit that I have no idea what the gender of our Littlest Bean is yet, but having two boys already, and with more than a 50% chance of having a third, there’s just something about three-boy families that makes me feel connected to them <3. As I photographed this bunch I kept taking it all in as a possible projection of my own family in the future, and it was wonderful. Boys are energetic, and silly, and crazy, and not afraid of a little dirt, and this family was no exception. We ran, and played, and explored the forest together. We wrangled, and cuddled, and even coerced smiles out of the more hesitant of the group. Here are a few highlights from one of the first evenings that truly felt like Summer around here <3.
