Bayou Brothers

These are my sweet second cousins. Brody is almost 6 and Eric is 16. We spent over 2 hours on the party barge and had a blast, zipping all over Lake Des Allemands. The boys know when I'm around that a camera will be pointed at them, but they didn't seem to mind. Well, maybe a little. I took 207 photos of these hams; it was difficult choosing a handful to show. Hope you enjoy!

Great photographs, Gail.
Always good to have a great photographer in the background - later the boys will be happy to have all the great shots about a part of their life.
Regards from Germany,
Uwe.

Good morning, Gail..
You really did an awesome job in capturing some priceless moments of these two. They both are such handsome guys and it sure looks like they were enjoying not only the water and the ride, but having their aunt Gail snapping shots of them. These are wonderful memories and you have the photos to prove it. You captured excitement, love, adventure, and much more in these pictures!!
Hope you have a terrific day.
hugs

Fun shots, Gail! They seem like very sweet boys. You've captured more here than just some excellent images, you can really see the love & care between the brothers and that is something very special indeed!

I bet you had a super time shooting these memorial times. They can look back on these photos later in life and remember you cared enough to document their youth.

You did your cute cousins proud!

Talked to Charlotte (Butterbean Row) today. Said she broken her foot in June. Evidently she sent you and me an email, but I didn't get it.

BTW, I thought your daughter's wedding was to be in August.?

Add my comment to those already posted on how great these action shots are to see, Gail. It's far easier to take photos of people doing something fun and the results show their joy.
