Kristie,
I never ever comment...nothing personal I just very rarely have anything to say...to anyone really.
But that is one handsome boy you have there. Lucky mom you'll be fighting the girls off with a stick. LOL

Yes he is!!

He seriously is absolutely beautiful. I also really, really like his haircut. I know you liked the long hair (or he did, or you both did) but holy cow, look at the angles and definition of his face! He could easily be a model in a few years. I love the last one and several of the ones of him being serious.

Great photography work, also. If you lived nearby, I'd have you take photos of my kids!

Great photography! Great looking boy!
LOVE the serious shots. Love the happy shots. Love the football shots. Oh yeh, that's all of the shots!

You'd better get a really big stick to beat off the girls with. He's starting middle school, isn't he?? Good luck!!
Oh yeah, he's gorgeous!!

I agree -- a very, very handsome young man. Do you miss the long hair? I think this new cut is totally wonderful.

OMG, Kristie, he is no longer a boy - he is turning into a young man. He is a little cutie - I absolutely love his haircut. Watch out girls.... great pictures as always!!!

Wow! He looks so grown up with his short haircut! You will have to be continually chasing all the girls away. :)

Kristie,
Your photos are excellent. You should be very proud of both your son and your skills.

Kristie, I hardly ever comment but read your blog religiously. I just have to take a moment today to say WOW. These are GREAT pictures. (But what do I know - I liked your recent water skiing pics too!) How many did you have to take to get these? What lens did you use? How much editing work did you do on them? What advice can you give those of us who are trying hard to capture similar types of images of our kids?

Also - two thumbs up on the haircut. He has always been a cutie with a sweet face but oh my, he looks amazing!

Your photo skills have gone through the roof (and I've always thought they were amazing). That class you took was well worth the money (or did PW give you some tips while you were at the ranch?). How did you ever get Kellen to pose for you like that? He IS gorgeous... he could be a model!

Julie W. said...

Not to beat a dead horse, but the haircut, oh the haircut! Seriously, so handsome.

Jessica in GA said...

He looks like a totally different person after the haircut. What a handsome kid you have!

Kelly said...

He's adorable. I just posted a similar post the other day about my (much littler) little guy. Something about that mother son bond...it's already getting to me!!

Kellan is one handsome kid! Good luck with the girls in the coming years. Or has it already started? I LOVE his haircut. So much cuter than the long hair.

XXOO, lMnop

Yeah, you're probably biased (you get to be you're the mom). But yeah, damn he *is* a good looking kid! (long hair or short ... ;)

A Mom said...

He's so handsome! I love that short hair cut.

Brittany said...

Loving the short hair and he's very handsome!!

Cindi said...

He suddenly looks so grown up! Your photos of him are great...he's a natural model.

Kristie,
Your son and your pictures are gorgeous!!! Love, love, love the haircut! Just got home from Book Day and have to say that many of my daughter's 13-year-old shaggy haired classmates could benefit from such an awesome look. :)

Love the photos- love the haircut!
Oh I love the photos- (again!) the ones in front of the red brick are my favs.

Kristie,
I am also a "lurker"...but had to comment on the pics also! He is so handsome...if my daughter was younger I would negotiate an arranged marriage..LOL I LOVE the new haircut, though I have always been a long hair type, but the new look is definitely Kellen! I might have to suggest short hair to all my boys....
