Brothers {Orange County, NY Children’s Photography}

Whenever I see these boys, I feel like they just walked out of a Gap magazine! 😉

They are handsome and very adorable. This past Sunday, my pastors wife asked if I could take a few photos of her boys and nephew so that she could give some updated photos to her grandmother. Luckily, I had my camera. As for a location–I happen to think that the brick beside the plaza where my church is looks pretty cool.

This was literally this quickest photo shoot that I’ve ever had. 3 minutes tops with each boy since it was right after church and everyone is normally ready for lunch by then. I love these boys. They all have such a big heart.

What I’ve been up to…

Lets recap: Last weekend, my youth group and I went to “Battlecry” which is an annual Christian youth conference held at the IZOD center in New Jersey. This year’s theme was Relentless Pursuit. It was to create a desire in the youth to be relentlessly pursuing God.

And boy did I have to relentlessly pursue God in those 27 hours! Hahaha Everything that could go wrong did go wrong: Flat tire on the way, got lost on the way to the IZOD Center, the hotel we booked refused to give us the complimentary breakfast that they said they provided. Since food at the IZOD Center is very expensive, we ordered Dominoes for lunch. They were an hour late. One of the youth lost their wallet.

We did have fun, but on the way back, around 11:30pm, we received some horrible news. My husbands grandfather had passed away. He had been back in the hospital that week and passed on Saturday. He will be missed.

Do you see the resemblance?

It’s safe to say that I’ve been pretty busy but through it all, my faith hasn’t wavered.
