I knew this would be a fun session when the mom asked if her boys could bring along a basketball and shoot a few hoops for my camera. It was even better than I expected, though! They were a ton of fun to shoot and had plenty of smiles to go around.
Meet the Jacksons.
I loved how this crew interacted with each other. The teasing never stopped, mostly from Dad…but the laughter never stopped either. I did have to work hard to get a smile out of a couple of the guys – they were a tad on the shy side. Leave it to me to break them right out of that shell! I’ve never met a shy guy I didn’t like! HA!
This one, though, made me work extra hard. AND, I’m glad I picked on him a tiny bit, because look at the love he was giving my camera by the time we were through.
In complete contrast, was this little gal.
I knew there was more than one reason I loved this group – it wasn’t just their charming personalities… Just look at that awesome basketball! Go pokes!
He was even picking on his sister! Luckily, she could handle it and gave back plenty of what he was dishing out!
We enjoyed our time at the park, but had to stop several times for the macho men to have a few contests. Who’s your money on?
Their momma must be raising these two right. I’ve never met a sweeter couple of guys. They were so well-behaved and willing to smile for my camera. I wish they’d come give Ty a pep-talk since he’s still hiding EVERY time I get the camera out!
AND….we finished up with a little hoop action as the sun started to set.
