Carrie is one of my oldest and probably my first running friend. It wasn’t until we both started running cross country and track in high school that we became close friends. The nature of division 1A high school sports and the travel involved promotes long standing friendships with your teammates. Plus, my parents moved just a few house away from her parent’s house during my freshman year of high school which meant we had more opportunities to run together. Carrie was and is an amazing runner. My running left a lot to be desired, however my competitiveness started to come out around age 14 and if Carrie was out running that dang hill in front of my parent’s house, I was going to be running it to. And so we ran. And so we became even better friends. Her parent’s still refer to me as “Heath-O” because that is how my 3 year old sister would cheer for me at my track meets and it just stuck.
I don’t see Carrie nearly enough, but every time she comes to town we seem to get together for pictures of her gorgeous kids. And that’s another reason why I love photography – anything that allows me to see old friends more often gets a plus in my book.
They kept cracking up at each other in these next few. It was perfect and made my job a little easier.
A little bit more serious.
I know I’m stating the obvious here, but his eyes and lips are to die for. I don’t do any special editing to eyes. I just do my normal processing to the entire photo however, those eyes just sparkle all on their own!
And we ending the morning with a treat, for a job well done, kids!
Again, the eyes, the eyes!
So, so great to see you and the kids, Carrie.
