Pure love.

August 27, 2010

This is my oldest with his favorite stuffed dog, Ralph.  Sean received Ralph as a first birthday present from a friend.  For whatever reason, there was an instant bond and Ralph became his treasured lovey.  My husband and I spent countless hours over the years, ‘searching’ for Ralph so that Sean would be able to go to sleep at night.  Ralph has also provided lots of comfort to Sean over the years, for invariably when Sean picks up Ralph, his thumb goes into his mouth.  Over the last year however, Ralph has had to be moved to a special basket at the foot of Sean’s bed because the dentist recommended no more thumb sucking for the sake of Sean’s teeth.  So without Ralph, there is no thumb sucking. It makes my heart sad because it reminds me that my baby boy is growing up so quickly.  I wanted to take a photo to remember the special relationship between these two.

I truly have the best job in the world!  I have the opportunity to meet the most amazing people and they invite me to photograph the love and joy that is present in their lives.  This gorgeous family was just fabulous!

Sue and Bob, you have a lovely family and I had a great time with all of you.  I’ll be in touch soon with the rest of the images.

This little girl is such a beauty and I could see instantly that she is the ‘apple’ of her parents’ eyes.  They love and adore her as is evident in the following photos.  Karyn and John, thanks for inviting me to spend some time with you and your family.  I hope you enjoy these photos and I’ll be in touch soon.

This little guy came early…7 weeks to be exact, but I just think he knew how much he was going to be loved by his mom and dad…so he wanted to get started right away.  This family was just beautiful and from the time I spent with them, I could feel the love that is in their home.  This perfect baby boy was just delightful!

Kristie and Joe enjoy these photos; I’ll be in touch when the rest are ready!  Thanks so much for inviting me into your home and allowing me to capture your beautiful son as a newborn.

Since I am the mother of three boys, I have a special place in my heart for brothers.  I love to see brothers play and interact together.  These two boys were just delightful!  I had so much fun as they showed me their tree house, bicycles, golf clubs, John Deere tools, etc.  It felt like home!
