So I've been sitting here for well over ten minutes trying to find the words to express how special I think this family is - but words aren't always my strength. They have joy and talent and imagination and fun and love and... well, you name it, and I think they might have it. :) And who doesn't want to be around all that! This family is full of so much light and love. And I thank them for sharing a little of that with me each year. :)

I have been best friends with Trey and Alex's aunt for many years (18 years!) so I remember these two when they were really little. And for the past several years I've had the privilege of photographing them. They are getting so big!

The night before our session they had an awesome Twins experience -- I admit I was a little jealous. :) First, they had amazing seats at the game and then they had access to the player's parking area -- so they got to meet several Twins players, including Joe Mauer. And they also picked up these cool Twins hats. Trey & Alex, I'm sure the session paled in comparison to the night before (how can one compete with Joe Mauer!), but thanks for being good sports! :)
