Connection. It’s what keeps our families together, it’s what allows our kids to stay grounded no matter how far they walk off the path. Whether it’s having a special dance, or playing their favorite video game (while knowing all the characters), making their favorite dinner, or a welcome home hug. It’s the simple gestures that allow our little ones to feel home time and time again. This precious session included wild curls, coloring, tickles, twirls, and soothing cuddles. Yesenia and Pablo fill their home with warmth, they are constant rock that strives to keep their family connected. As we all know, parenting is a job that can test every inch of you. Yet in the end, it is sweet joy and lots of handmade kid’s cards that make it all worthwhile.
On a side note, I have to say that being at this home truly moved me. At one point, I was so full of emotion, I cried (and I wasn’t even pregnant yet!) There was a moment when Yesenia’s daughter was watching her mom dance one of her favorite songs. I will never forget the look that she gave her as she watched Yesenia flow her skirt, twirl around and sing sweet notes. Her eyes wide and smile beaming, she was watching a true princess. And that pretty much sums up why I do what I do. Being able to be part of these precious moments, and capturing true love in it’s deepest form, well it just doesn’t get any sweeter.
