    You take the best photos capturing the most precious moments. I know when they’re grown they’ll love them.

  2. Andi says:

    Oh, that is simply fantastic . . . I think what I love best is the simple tranquility of the moment. You’ve caught them both at a moment of such utter relaxation, with a sort of laid-back curiosity about the beach ahead . . . that, coupled with how comfortable they both look with each other, is just gorgeous.

  3. Phoenix says:

    SO freaking cute.

  4. shaz says:

    awwww, too precious.

  5. Debbie says:

    You DO capture the best moments of your family in pictures. I like this one the best of all. I would have love to hear what they were saying!

  6. Kristie says:

    I believe that one of the marks of a really good photographer is the ability to hang back and recognize and capture special moments. Unplanned, impromptu moments. I, unfortunatly, do not have this skill. But you do! :)

    Thanks for sharing — even the backs of your kids’ heads are cute. :)

  8. Lori says:

    Your children are so adorable! I agree: the cutest ones are when they don’t know you’re taking the picture.

  9. Karen Vogel says:

    Doesn’t it just make your heart melt when one of the older ones holds one of the younger ones like that? It makes everything worth it.

  10. Kellan says:

    Some of my most favorite photos of my children are the one’s from behind. You don’t even have to see their faces for there to be a story of love, friendship or joy. This is a lovely photo of your children.

  11. ali says:

    how cute is that? we’re still at the stage when one lifts another…someone gets hurt!

  12. Fina says:

    Ditto on all of the above - plus you seem to have your watermark just perfect now. I wont get into how much it sucks for you to do that to save your babies pictures from freaks/wierdos/etc. It has actually made me think twice about creating my own blog.
    Thank you for continuing to share your precious pictures.

  13. Karly says:

    Perfect caption! Love the picture.

  14. Mommy mommy says:

    that is so cute!!! And I see you got the watermark thing down. After reading your post on that and watching a cyberlebrity instilled CSI the same night I tossed and turned all night thinking about it. And even though I am pretty sure it was the combo of the 2 and a 103 degree fever, I completely see your point and even though it will take more time, i think I should start doing the same.

  15. javamama says:

    AWWWW! One of the downsides of having only three, and having them close together… the oldest doesn’t get a lot of “caretaker” time (in this way) with the youngers. I’ve got to bide my time and wait for the kids to have baby cousins to get this kind of sweetness. I think your sons will be good dads.

  16. kate says:

    I think when I first started reading your site, I would have been one of those people who saw you in the grocery store with your kids and thought, “she sure has her hands full, haw haw…”

    But seeing pictures like this really brings home what an incredible gift you’ve given your kids, and what a wonderful family you all are. Plus, think of all the grandkids in your future!

  17. Holly says:

    That is a precious picture. Thank you for sharing.

  18. Jenn says:

    Another fabulous photo. When your children grow up they are going to be so thankful their mum is a wonderful photographer. My mom wasn’t a great photographer and there aren’t that many good photos of my sister or I.

  19. Jean says:

    Absolutely beautiful.

  20. lori says:

    sweet boys.

  21. Heather's Garden says:

    I see you’ve managed to convince him that socks are not necessary when wearing his Crocs! I’m jealous, I always wanted an older brother who would support me. Your kids are so lucky.

  22. Mishel says:

    I have been reading your blog for a bit, shortly after becoming a new mommy,and I have to say that this is one of the most adorable pictures I have seen.

  23. dynamitt says:

    That picture is great! (and now I have that song stuck in my head…)

  24. liz says:

    That picture is simply beautiful.

  25. carrie says:

    Big brothers rule!

  26. carrien says:

    ain’t, ain’t heavy, you grammar maven you.

    Love the picture.

  27. CaliforniaGrammy says:

    Oh so precious! You capture so many great moments, Chris.

  28. Manic Mommy says:

    The photo reminds me of that poem Footprints. Beautiful

  29. ann-marie says:

    how wonderful that a child can remind us that those we love should never be a burden to us.

  30. Holly Smith says:

    Mmmm…breath-taking capture!

    Would you mind if I linked your blog? I really enjoy reading it and seeing your family photos!

  32. Jackie @ Family Daze says:

    Love, love, love the picture.

    It’s such a great boy shot — the way boys should be together. Do you suppose they’re talking about boogers?

  33. Mrs. Schmitty says:

    How precious a picture! Those are the moments, aren’t they?

  34. Sue says:
