The girls are 6, 4, and 2. The two older girls were really into the session, posing and hamming it up for the camera. We cranked up the High School Musical soundtrack and cut loose! The 2 year old -- not so much. Not even her mom’s purse full of Swedish Fish, my toy fart machine, a huge lollipop, or a skip thru the forest could get her in the mood for pictures. So we had to get a little bit creative, which is why you see her being waved thru the air by her dad. LOL!
The 4-year-old is currently battling childhood cancer, and her parents thought now would be an important time to document their family. I totally agree and I am truly honored that they chose me to help create their images. The family’s spirit, strength, and contagious positive attitude were evident the moment I met them, and I hope these portraits capture that. Please keep this beautiful family in your prayers and send positive thoughts their way during this challenging time.
