This was one of my favorite photo sessions… maybe ever. This could be due to the beautiful example of motherhood that is Lisa (her voice was made for reading aloud story books and teaching exciting new things). It could be due to the smart, sarcastic humor of Shawn. Maybe it was because Miss Madeleiney is a girl after my own heart, as evidence of our discussions of all things Audrey Hepburn and sparkly things and polkadot things and cute, fluffy things like kittens. Or two brothers with different, yet equally effervescent personalities, who enjoy a good race or tackle or two.
It might have been due to the fact that in the midst of thick, heavy trial; they invited me to spend an afternoon with them… and this family was radiant with bright light, peace, and love. They’re strong and illuminated from the inside out, and they can do anything.
It’s all very wonderful if you ask me.
