I’ve held a special place in my heart for these two boys since the day I met them. I’ve not only been lucky enough to watch them grow up over the past few years, but I’ve been photographing them for 4 years – so I am now that crazy aunt that has a million pictures of them 🙂 We played around my neighborhood at Olive Park and Navy Pier, showed them where I live, they met my roommate’s dog (who liked my nephews so much he got overly excited and pee’d on my floor), and even went out to breakfast after freezing in the frosty fall weather. Something as small as holding my nephews’ hands as we crossed the streets I walk across everyday made me smile. It was like bringing a piece of home to my new home and it just reminded me how much I love these two little boys. One day when they’re 16 they’ll read this blog and be so embarassed of their crazy aunt with the camera, but oh well, we’ve all got one, right?
