Special Families – It’s Picture Time!

Special Families Contest Winner!

Thank you all for reading and forwarding our contest to your friends. As I mentioned earlier last week, Chris and I have been touched by your stories and definitely know that you are not alone. We posted the little survey asking whether or not you knew a special needs family – and not one person said “no.” In fact, everyone but one has a direct friend that they know that’s impacted.

We know that there are TONS more deserving families out there that didn’t get nominated. But Chris and I secretly were glad that only two found their way to the blog….because how can we possibly pick between two deserving families? We can’t…but we can award both families with complimentary sittings!!!!! YEAH!!! You both deserve it SO much. We want to bless you with pictures that will caputre the spirit of your children – and help you share that wonder with all of your friends and family!!!!

So Christina and the Collier family, give me a call to set it up: 925-586-7145. Just ask for Sara:-)

Special Families – Time’s Running Out!


We have truly been blown away by the stories that you all have sent us. Thanks for sharing and helping us – and everyone else reading -understand what it’s like to be in your shoes. We really do admire you!

We know that there are lots more deserving families – so please nominate them! Chris and I don’t want this to just be about the contest, it’s about helping others understand the trials and challenges you bravely face each day. So the more stories, the better! Submit your nominations by posting a comment to this post.

And, if you are reading this wondering what you can do, why not donate a sitting? Chris and I will give the 30 image CD with the $200 price of a regular sitting. We’d love to have lots of winners! Send us an e-mail if you want to help out in that capacity.

Our Little Musician

These pictures make me so happy. Luke is really drawn to music and this little piano – he really likes to play! It was Lucy’s Christmas present last year and he will literally crawl from one corner of the room to the other to reach this thing. It’s so fun to watch his determination and then see his joy when he reaches his goal. Check out those little fingers!

Who knows…perhaps we’ll have a concert pianist in the family. Oh, a parent can dream, right?;-)

Merrilee - Move over Beethoven..you definitely have the cutest concert pianist around!

Pictures at the Patch

You are going to go nuts when you see this slide show! Devin, the little boy, is SO sweet and oh so cute! I had a great time with him and his family – how can you go wrong with people this beautiful!

As you can see, we also came back to the studio for some really fun baby/family pictures. Check out his slide show! I think what I love most about their pictures is how comfortable they all were with what was happening in the moment. No silly cheesy smiles here! Thanks guys – it was great working with you!
