The little one that is due in August has already been diagnosed with Down syndrome. Sthefanie was just telling me the other day how she would love to have a photo session once she is born. I know that money isn’t always available for things like that and it would be such a fabulous surprise for her! I would even give them my session to use at a later time.

They are precious people that are the salt of the earth type. They handle life with grace, regardless of the challenges life throws them. They are friends over time and distance, the kind of friends that put your needs over their own. Precious.
