Last year, I photographed this beautiful mommy and her three boys right around mother’s day. It wasn’t the first time I had seen them… since I had photographed them before on more than one occasion. Shortly after that mommy and me session, she get the worst news any mother would want to hear. One of her sons was not well, and it would mean that their whole world as they knew would be turned around. It meant doctors visits, treatments, relocating to a new city, and distance between her and her hubby. It meant that the life she lived would be different as long as her little guy was fighting for his life.
Hearing this news made me realize one thing. Life really can change an instant. It means that we do need to cherish every moment with our little ones because from one day to the next it can all change. And it means that every day is a gift… and we need to live each day with grateful hearts.
This past May, the “S” family returned to San Antonio and they came back with great news. Not only did their little boy win the biggest fight of his life, but his beautiful mother is now expecting boy #4. And y’all my heart is happy! I have a feeling I will be seeing them again… this time as a family of 6!
