I knew we had a great session ~ but I’m just in awe of what you got in such a relatively short amount of time!! You capture the very essence of my family ~ the one of us looking at each other makes me cry dinosaur tears. And the sassy one of Meena, what you said in your blog is so true…she’s come so far and I just see triumph for now and the future in her eyes, like she’s just daring the world to bring it on, cuz she’ll handle it with strength, grace, a mighty personality and a gorgeous smile. And the one of Mason and I ~ I feel like he’s my “healing” baby after our experience with Meena, and he’s brought such pure, simple joy, happiness and laughter to me…that pic screams that to me. And the silly ones…I could gush about all of them, they each illustrate a different facet of my family, each speak with a different voice.
To say you are amazing at what you do is an understatement. I know you hear it all the time, but it’s just so true. ***wipes tears away***
After leaving the mini yesterday I was overcome with self loathing (for yelling at the kids and snarling at husband… I was hissing at one point), guilt (for making such a big deal out of a picture and upsetting the fam) an mostly anger at the boys for not being able to pull themselves together for ME once a year for 20 minutes. Seriously. Renee and I commiserated over a glass of wine last night about how important family photos are to us (YOUR PHOTOS). Enough said. The big take home message is this… when you are old and in a nursing home you know what’s left? Cars, homes (NOPE), 28 inch waist (Ha! never had it but NOPE as well), diamonds? wrong again.. photos. Every older person has (almost without exception) pictures of friends, family and life hanging on their walls. You are the best, I hope there is at least one picture out of the chaos that was yesterday. LOL I will want the package, you know me. Heavy sigh. On to a new day, group hug and I will pinch myself when the bubble of anger surfaces; I will remember to be Thankful Today for my blessings.

You are a magician! I can’t believe you managed these photos from the BAD day. AMAZING!! I can’t wait to see the rest. How can they look so cute (!) innocent (!) handsome (!) and be such hard work.
