I took the boys on a short hike last Sunday and as usual I took my camera with me. They were having fun and were happy to accommodate my photo requests so I thought it was a great chance to practice my portrait skills. The sun was strong, but since we were in the woods it gave some excellent shadows.
There's a mixture of styles here. Some of them have the boys posing because Daddy nagged them into it. A few are candid portraits where they're not really paying attention (That's probably my favorite style of portrait). But towards the end, the boys got into the whole photo thing and started suggesting poses for me which was a really fun variation.
Although it was mainly intended as practice, I'm quite proud of a few of these.
