Just my son, my bed and my camera but it means more to me than anything other session I have done…

At the beginning of January we found out that our baby to be (due in April) has a heart defect and will need surgery within his first week of life and 3 subsequent surgeries after that until the age of 4. Not the greatest way to kick off a new year. I was quite low and depressed but knew that I needed to get out of the funk. I have always said that photography is my therapy, when i’m behind the camera I don’t think about anything other than what’s I am shooting and this session I photographed who I love the most…my 2 1/2 year old son, Jensen. Normally (and I don’t blame him), he HATES having his photo taken but on this day he was all for it! Being a ham in front of the camera, posing, and for anyone that has or has photographed a busy toddler, they know that is a difficult task haha. We shot this right before and after nap time so I let him take his snooze in our room so I could get some sweet and innocent sleeping shots. Just watching him sleep gave me such a sense of calm and determination. We can overcome this, it’s just a bump in the road….our little babe will pull through beautifully <3
