In life you get a few opportunities to do something really awesome. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn't.
You keep going, pressing on, pressing up, getting tired and starting again!!
At a family gathering over Easter weekend I got to photograph one of the strongest people I know. She has told her story in her own words here >>>http://www.babybeborn.com/blog <<< I encourage you to read it and feel her story. I admire this woman so much. She has no idea!!! (well, she will when she reads this, I guess!) (hahaha) She has faced obstacles I cannot even imagine and still faces some of them to this day!!
She is strong. She is smart. She is beautiful. She is talented. She is a mommy and a wife. She is wonderful.
And she is generous!!
She asked me to take photos of her little family!!!
(Several heart emoticons!!!!)
She has two fabulous kiddos that light up when they talk to you!!!! It really is something!!! A. (big sister) is so smart and creative! At 5 years old she can draw way better than I ever could!!!! She is very serious when she has her paper and color crayons out.....
While A. is all Art and Craft and Smartness, her little brother V. is all Fun, Trains and dancing!!!!
Capturing moments with young children is tricky!! It takes time and a lot of effort!! And sometimes you walk away praying you got something good!!!! And sometimes, those prayers are answered so specifically there is no way we can doubt that there is a God in heaven who hears our prayers and answers them specifically!!!!!
I heart this photo SO much!!!! Just a precious brother and sister moment!!!
I'm sure their mommy can testify to the fact that they are normal children, they fuss, fight over toys and lose shoes, but this....for this one moment we captured a pure sweetness that mom can look at and remind herself that she IS doing something right!!! (Many things right!!)
Then, finally, mom and dad get a moment. They are few and far between at this point in their life, but sometimes a moment is enough!!!
Love you guys!!!! Thank you for letting me take photos of your sweet family!!!!
