A while back, I had the privilege of doing an in-home lifestyle session with one of the most incredible families I have ever known. I will share some of their super fun session with you in a moment. But first, let me introduce you to them. This family loves puzzles, nature hikes, movies, good books, dance parties, fishing, campfires, and hot chocolate. They know how to have fun together! At the same time, they face some of life’s deepest pain and uncertainty together. The sweet boy in these photos was born with congenital heart disease. Over the seven years of his life, he has had numerous open heart surgeries. The strength and courage of this precious boy through everything he has endured is nothing short of astounding (as is the strength and love of his incredible parents and devoted sisters).
I am daily inspired and challenged by how this family walks forward with unrelenting determination in the strength of their faith, with joy through the unceasing battle, and with a love so rich that knows no regrets.
We had SO much fun at their in-home family session. There was snuggling, dancing, reading, games, skateboarding, and even s’mores to end the night! Below are my favorites of the many moments we captured. As you look through these, I hope that you will pray with me for the needed miracle of a new heart for this precious boy. I also hope that this glimpse into their life inspires you to love your own family even more fiercely. May we remember that each day is a gift with no guarantee of tomorrow.
