A sweet day for me....

Remember this? A CHRISTMAS GIFT


It finally happened! I chose this amazing woman, Leslie, and her sweet son, Aaron. Her story...well, it broke my heart. Leslie's husband passed away unexpectedly and I as so touched by her courage and strength. Meeting her was amazing. She is beyond lovely. And that boy of hers....whoa! He's so charming.

We kept putting the shoot off, waiting for perfect weather etc. Here's a tiny peek of the goodies we got.

sara,

lily just left me a comment on my blog today letting me know these were on here. I LOVE THEM. WOW !!!
i can't tell you how grateful i am for:
1: being able to meet you and now call you a friend.
and 2: for the priceless gift you gave to us by taking these photos of us.
i am so used to being BEHIND the camera, i never get to have special time with my son in FRONT of the camera. this is truly a gift that i will treasure always...
you are a special person and i am so grateful to you for these. i really admire you.
thank you to you and to lily once again for the gift and for nominating me.
I AM TRULY BLESSED !!!

all my love always,

leslie * aaron jr.
