I *may* have gotten a little teary-eyed while working on these photos. Let me explain...
The Hutchins are a wonderful family in our ward, and have become good friends over the time that we have lived here. We think they're pretty great. But I'll always be so grateful to Rachael for taking care of G-Man for the first two years I taught school after he was born. She started watching him for me one day a week when G-Man was five months old. Though it was nice to go teach and get myself out of the house that one day each week, it was torture to leave him. The only thing that made it okay was knowing that Rachael was watching him. She's one of the most loving, kind people I know. And looking at these pictures of Rachael with her family reminded me of all of that, and then I started crying thinking about how much we're going to miss living here.
This photo shoot has been many, many months in the making. It was a Christmas gift from G-Man to Rachael a couple of Christmases ago, but we haven't been able to get the shoot done for a variety of reasons. I'm glad we were able to go take these - and at a spot that means a lot to both of us - the Boston LDS Temple.
I'd love to hear in the comments which are your favorites. I had a lot, but I think this one is my very favorite:
And if you know Aaron and know the girls' personalities, I don't have to explain why I love it or why it makes me laugh when I look at it. Enjoy!
