Carson::Senior 2013

With two brothers graduating this year, I had two senior shoots to add to my schedule.
I can definitely say that my bros were some of the most fun senior shoots I've done so far.
Because I live with them and know them so well, I really didn't even have to ask them what they would want for props, etc. 
I just KNEW. =)
Meet my big little brother, Carson.
He is seventeen and sometimes I wonder if oil and grease run in his veins instead of blood. =)
It is not an understatement to say that he LOVES equipment.
Not only does he love it, but he knows what it takes to make it all tick and run.
He is happiest working on a big engine, or anything that needs fixing in the mechanical department.
He knows more about our bus and what makes it run, than anyone else in our family.
He's already been offered a job by several mechanic shops.
He was the first one in our family to really get a hunger and a desire for soul-winning. 
Even as a little boy he was constantly sharing Christ and handing out tracts.
He shares the gospel with people everywhere, like the guy who brings our pig feed, and
 the cashier at the gas station.
He inspires me.
He has a vision and a purpose. 
He knows where he's going and what he's after in life.
Carson and my personalities are somewhat similar.
  As a result we've always either seen eye to eye on things...or else both been so sure that our way was right that we majorly butted heads. =)
He can play the bass like nobody's business.
He's also picked up guitar this past year.
He bought this old four-wheeler for a steal somewhere. 
When he got it it had all kinds of issues and didn't even run.
He tore it all apart this spring and spent hours getting new parts and putting it all back together again.
Now he's got it running like a dream. 
He plans to sell it (for a profit, of course) and buy another one that "doesn't work". =)
Love you, brother! 
Praying God will bless you and use you in MIGHTY ways for His Kingdom!



  1. Great photos, Chels! Carson sounds like my dad...always tinkering with something! And always brainstorming about what sorts of broken things he can fix. :) I find it fascinating since I have NO clue how such machines are put together. heehee :) Loved hearing Carson thump away on his bass this past weekend. It's neat to see siblings who love one another so sweetly and cooperate well. :)
