I heart faces with a little FLARE!

brandon 2

Sun Flare that is! This week the theme at I heart faces is sun flare. Awh... I just love it! I think it brings so much emotion and mood to photographs. This is a picture I took of my nephew for his senior photos. I love everything about this picture as it shows so much of his personality. His mother always describes him as a "free spirit", he doesn't let the weight of the world ever effect him. All he needs is his guitar, family and friends and he will be just fine. If only we could see life in that perspective?

Don't forget to go over to I heart Faces and check out the rest of the the entries. Just click HERE!
