FAMILY SESSION: Her Heart, Her Everything

I'll be honest that I'm struggling trying to adequately verbalize what my heart wants to "say" as it relates to this family and their session...

No, I'm not going to get all sentimental and emotional on you...it's not that...

I meet with LOTS of families and they are all unique and special in their own right...

Maybe it's the fact that I'm pushing well into my 40s now...maybe it's because my eldest turned 16 last weekend...maybe it's because the older I get, the more I recognize that I never really had it all together in the first place...

Whatever the cause, something catches my heart...or perhaps just makes itself evident...when I meet up with this family...

First of all, I know we share a similar "belief set" of Truth...that, in and of itself, bonds us in ways that no words could help describe anyway...

On top of that, I always have seen a deep commitment to teamwork on behalf of this little guy's mom and dad...and coupled with that, is a level of respect that is commanded...

Now, don't take that in a negative connotation...

When I think of commanding respect, I don't think of someone screaming and demanding it... rather, I picture it as a calm, quiet, loving way of setting expectations...

These parents know that they have been entrusted with this incredible gift of a son...and part of their job is to train him, even as a little, little guy to slowly become independent...to be obedient, kind, compassionate...

I know that kids aren't perfect and will totally push buttons...they're kids...it's what they do...

It's how these parents consistently react and model and train and persevere that makes all the difference! 

Now, I don't see their everyday, in and out...and I'm sure there are days that it may not look like what I see during our photo session...but I'm impressed regardless!

this momma says often, "he is my heart"... 

A heart has a HUGE job...it takes work to pump, you have to exercise to keep it healthy...sometimes it's not fun, but you always want the best, so you do the hard things...because you know the GOOD and WONDERFUL things it will produce in the end...

He is their Heart...they do the things... and they love him with everything they've got!
