My brother and his boy...



I snapped these shots of my brother, Justin, and his son, Maddox, today...



It makes me feel SO PROUD of my brother when I look at them together.

ditto on the great photo comments! I'd also love to hear what camera and lens you used....maybe even the setup to get this look. I keep trying to get mine to look like this but no luck. Would love to get some help!
