Have you ever met someone for the first time and you knew right from the start how your meeting or in my case my session was going to go. It's crazy but from the time this family got out of the car, I had an instant feeling that Saturday morning was going to be great. I don't know why but I always get nervious meeting up with new clients and I actually loose a little sleep over it....Well I can honestly say I lost sleep friday night for nothing!...I loved this session. This little family captured my heart from the start.
After our session and as I was scanning through all of the images I noticed how Christopher always had to touch mom in some way and when he looked at her you could tell that she was his best friend. You could tell that she gave him great comfort.....
Mom shared something with me that evening that really stuck with me, with her permission of course, I was told I could share.
She explained to me why she wanted to schedule a session. She said it was Christopher's idea to get pictures taken. She said they were listening to KSBJ and there was a lady on there talking about how she hated her body and she would never get in any of the pictures with her kids. One of her teenage sons told her that when she dies they wouldn't remember her because there where no pictures, and she was the only one concerned about her body. Christopher said see I love you cause your my mom, so you have to take pictures wth me. :-) She said she couldn't say no to that. Christopher was a preemie when he was born @ 31 weeks he was two pounds, and she always held him skin to skin, she thinks that is why they have such a strong bond. The doctor told her that neither one of them should be alive today. I told Catie that Christopher spoke with great wisdom...When it comes to children and their parents they don't care about anything other than that you love them unconditionally.
1 John 3:1 See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
Thanks Catie and Christopher for sharing my morning with me. I know that you and Christoher will always walk hand in hand. Maybe not always in the physical sense but in the SPIRITUAL SENSE.... May GOD truly BLESS you both!!!!!
