I believe some people are put in your life just when you need them the most. It's almost like when times get tough, God sends an angel to help lift you up and help you believe that life will at some point seem 'normal' again. I was extremely honored when my son's physical therapist asked me to take some pictures of her beautiful family. I met this lady by pure circumstance....a circumstance that I never dreamed I would be faced with. My son's diagnosis has taught me that when life deals you lemons, you make lemonade. This incredible woman just happens to be some of the sweetener my lemonade needed. She has three AMAZING kids who are incredibly smart, funny, goofy, relaxed....all the characteristics I hope my kids have someday. Her boys could not look more different. The oldest boy is absolutely stunning with his dark hair and dark eyes. But Lord does he have a goofy side which was SO fun to see during our shoot!
Serious good looks at such a young age!
'Hey Ana, aren't you going to take a funny picture of me? Yes......absolutely....I would love to take a goofy picture of your adorable face!
Now let's talk about little brother. I mean seriously...could they look more different? This kid has some beautiful blue eyes and a lovely personality to go with them. He most definitely is his own unique soul, but also wants badly to keep up with his big brother!
'Hey....I want a goofy picture too!!' OK you got it kid. Get back in the tree!
And last, but certainly not least is their beautiful, inquisitive, playful daughter who absolutely loved getting her picture taken. She brought along her best buddy...her dog Vito. The love she has for this dog was clearly evident. I love when kids love animals. They are so good for the soul! I'm pretty sure I'm going to be stealing her away in the future for more practice. :)
This family was a lot of fun. It helps that they are all beautiful and have such fun personalities. I feel so blessed to know them!
