Happy Birthday Justin!

Happy Birthday to my brother Justin! He is turning *15* today, and I can't believe it! Seems like yesterday he was a little boy!

Like the girls, he too got his pictures taken recently to document this birthday! Photo shoots with a teen boy are slightly different than with the drama-queen females in this family, so it was....interesting to say the least. It went something like this:

Me: "Here, stand here with your basket ball and put one arm up against the tree."

Him: "This feels awkward."

Me: "Yeah, it looks awkward too. It would help if you smiled a little bit more."

Him: "How can I smile when the sun is in my eyes??"

Me: "Ok, stand here instead. Now smile bigger."

Him: "I am!" (raises eyebrows)

Me: "Raising your eyebrows is not smiling bigger. Smile with your cheeks."


Totally the best one yet, don't you think???? =)

I would be remiss to not include some of him with his brother:

And him and his dog:

As usual, I'd love to hear your favorites! Of course the ones with Judah are the best, but I also kind of like the one up near the top right under the word "finally." although it doesn't really matter which is my favorite...once he sees these on here, I'll be dead anyway. (Hee hee!)

Happy Birthday!


  1. HOW IS HE 15?!?!?!? Wow. Miss all of you. These pics of your siblings are making me feel old ;)

    1. YOU feel old? :) I agree, there is no way he is 15!

  2. I kinda like the one with the raised eyebows the best but I'm a little kooky like that anyways! :) They all look really good, you did a great job.

    1. He has an interesting way of "smiling bigger," doesn't he? :)
