Twinsies

I’ve had the pleasure of  photographing portraits for the Wells twins over several years now, and it is always a fun adventure!  These two young men are very animated with completely different personalities, and they are a blast to chase around and photograph, and I do mean chase!  These fellas don’t stay in one place for too long!  It’s a little like sports photography, if truth be told, but it’s always a good time.  For the shoot we went up to “Twin Falls”, no pun intended, also known as “Eastatoe Falls”, located in Pickens County SC.  It’s great place to shoot and very simple to get to.  A scenic drive and a very short hike, and you’re there!

I even caught a great shot of mom and dad, while they watched the boys play!

Builder Squirrels

Sitting on my back deck this morning, while drinking my coffee, I couldn’t stop smiling while watching two squirrels building a new home in the trees.  They would run out and chew off small twigs, with leaves, and run back to their new home to stash them away.  From time to time you would see leaves fall to the ground below as they would drop one occasionally. But, these creatures are extremely well balanced and gifted.  I must say, I was a little envious of their skills!  I want to jump from tree to tree like that! And I could swear these little guys stopped and posed for me a couple of times, the little hams that they are!
