You may remember these adorable brothers from here when I photographed them when they turned one. They have been some of my absolute favorite clients ever since I first met the boys when they were babies. (Sadly, my old blog isn’t live anymore, so I can’t refer back to their newborn session. Trust me, they were too cute for words!) I was amazed then by their parents and how they so calmly and patiently juggled three little newborns. I am in awe today though of how they have bravely faced and overcome tragic and terrifying obstacles.
Shortly after our session last summer, one of the boys contracted meningitis. Alex was seriously ill and hospitalized for weeks. It was an incredibly frightening time as the doctors weren’t sure whether or not Alex would survive or, if he did, if he would make a complete recovery. As if that wouldn’t be enough for parents to deal with, they also had two other babies at home who needed care. With immeasurable love, support and prayers from so many people, Alex has made an inspiring recovery and is now a happy, healthy, busy two year old who loves nothing more than to run around with his brothers.
Courtney and Justin, I know the last year was an incredibly long road and it was filled with so many emotions. It was such a joy for me to be able to see Alex laughing, chasing dogs and playing with sticks and to think about how far he has come since those scary, dark days one year ago. You have such a special family and your boys truly have forever touched my heart. Love and huge hugs to Alex, Cade and Connor!
