Extended Family Session- Balboa Park
Last week I got up before the sun to meet some beautiful people at Balboa Park. It is so fitting that this extended family session took place on Thanksgiving morning because these guys are the embodiment of both THANKS and GIVING.
THANKS because even amidst the most heart-wrenching of trials, I heard many members of this dear family express gratitude for what they DID have. GIVING because of so many reasons! I can't even begin to tell you all of the ways that their giving hearts have made a difference in my world, and the world of many others. They share their time, their talents, their smiles, their words of wisdom, their homes, and their love. And lest you think they're all work and no play, here are a few of my favorite silly moments:
I like to include some "just for fun" images in every gallery -the ones that probably won't make it on the wall, but that are too good not to share! The "just for fun" gallery from this family is typically larger than the average one, and I love it! They have so much fun together. The whole session was a series of laughing and smiling, with an occasional, "Whatever you do, don't look at the camera and smile!" And that would result in this adorableness:
Arrington family, you are raising some pretty dang cute little boys! Cute little boys that don't yet know how incredible the role models are that surround them. I have no doubt that in time they will come to recognize and demonstrate the same kindness and generosity that has become an Arrington legacy. I also have no doubt they will accomplish that with a winning smile in tact!
