As I was missing the ocean beaches of Hawaii and singing "Somewhere over the rainbow," I found this session of the Wilkersons that I forgot to blog. Jenn was a good friend of mine when I lived in Hawaii and luckily the military brought her and her lovely family into my life.
I flew to Hawaii and took their family portraits before they headed off on a new adventure the military would take them on.

You shouldn't be remembering awkward fake smiles and cheeses at the camera. Rather, the fun you had at your session and how you barely even noticed the camera! These boys were all giggles when the tickle monster came out.

I think it may be because his momma is an amazing photographer.

The way they hold the hands gently but secure, his under hers...

I may be a little biased as my husband has red hair, but it's adorable.
