meggan - What a beautiful gift you were able to give this family!

Renee Giugliano - Whidbey Island Child Photographer - Beautiful images! LOve that last one on the bottom right! 🙂

PamN - THIS is what it’s all about – this family makes the extra effort needed to capture their beautiful children and their relationship in these gorgeous images that they will love forever! There are many families that don’t have these extra challenges and don’t make the time to do something so meaningful and important.

Sophie Crew - Ohhh sweet Abby…. my own daughter suffered a traumatic brain injury two years ago as well, and spent nearly 2 months in the hospital – 19 days in a coma, 5 surgeries, and a new prosthetic skull later, we are blessed to have our daughter still in our lives. These images are SO important and beautiful. Remember how lucky Abby is to have such a loving and strong family. She is beautiful and this family makes me smile 🙂

Anna-Karin - What a beautiful family and adorable little girl.
Love the happy joyous moments you were able to capture in this session.
