I Heart Faces | Enjoying Life!

There are some families that I just love to photograph!

Yes, they have children.

YOUNG children.

One is autistic, and one has a seizure disorder.

And ALL of them are beautiful!

Dad is in the military and on another deployment.

And mom had NO expectations for the children cooperating for portraits.

Oh, but life is so beautiful when you are a child…

And when children have the opportunity to be children!

I LOVED photographing these wonderful babies!

(My blog uploader is doing strange things to the photos, so to see the photo better, please click on the photo and see it on Flickr.  Silly blog uploader…Sorry for the inconveniece!)

The theme this month for I Heart Faces photo contest is:

Enjoying Life!

I want to encourage all the mothers out there…

…it isn’t going to be perfect…

…it isn’t always going to go as planned…

…you will be exhausted…

…but trust me when I say…

…it is always worth it!


And never be afraid to let your children be children…

…even for their portraits!
