Birthday Portraits and Valentines

If you’ve been following me over the past 8 years you will recognize these cute faces!  I thought this was a suitable session to post the day before Valentine’s Day!  The first photos are of big sister.  She is a sparkplug to say the least!  I love taking her photos because of two reasons 1) she is comfortable around me and 2) she doesn’t like having me take her photos.  As funny as it sounds these two things are the perfect recipe for photos!  Since it’s all a big joke I get some great candids!  Second we have her brother who was born with a congenital heart defect.  He has had more surgeries in his first year than most adults will have in their entire lives.  It is actually CHD awareness week!  CHDs are the most common birth defect, affecting nearly 1% of all births in the U.S.  Most people are unaware of this.  I know I was!  More discussion will hopefully result in more research funding.  It has been a pleasure to see Silas and take his photos year after year.  He is truly a heart warrior.
