The Best of Friends | Louisville Child Photographer

The bond of friendship often starts at a very young age.  Friends teach us to share, love and how to be truly selfless.  They also push us to greatness, helping us see who we really are and what we can be.  True friendship is  a great blessing and when it begins at a young age, as with brothers, it’s a joy to watch.  These boys are both best friends and worst enemies, although the plight of an enemy at this age is almost comical!  When my blog circle presented friendship as a theme for the month of September I thought about the things I might photograph.  Ultimately though, when I think of friendship these days, I think of these boys.  Their childhood days may be numbered but their friendship will last a lifetime.

What started as a fishing inspired session quickly took a delightful turn.  I can’t ask for anything better than laughter, natural expressions and pure joy, what more could express the friendship these boys share?

Just before I put my camera away the sun popped up over the trees and beamed across the pond.  As happy as their faces look, I was wearing the bigger smile. They will grow quickly and likely loose interest in the simple things but for right now, in this very moment, they are full of energy, life, innocence and friendship.

Don’t forget to keep clicking through!  My friend Kate’s up next with her interpretation of friendship this month!
