It was perfect that I got to photograph my sweet nephews during National Cleft and Craniofacial Awareness Month. My youngest nephew made his debut four months ago, and not only was it my first time meeting him, but I also got to be a sponsor for his baptism. He was born with a cleft lip and palate and also has the sweetest personality. Watching my sister-in-law and brother care for him is so special, and each day it is apparent how much they love their three boys. It's always a treat to go back home to see them.
We have been blessed with a beautiful fall so far. I met this family at a park in St. Paul, and the leaves, trees, and clouds were just gorgeous. Unfortunately many of the leaves had already fallen off the trees, but it still made for some beautiful fall foliage.
It was my first time meeting this wonderful family, and I had so much fun during our time together. It was so great to see their boys jump to different spots throughout our walk to the river and say, "Take a picture of me over here!" It showed me that they were excited about what we were doing, and I loved, loved, loved that. Their sweet little girl was a little tired during part of the session, but we still captured some adorable moments, and, wow, she is a cutie pie!
I caught myself smiling a lot while editing these photos. There is just lots of love and joy in their family, and it definitely shows. :)
