red balloons for ryan

About a week ago I heard – as many others did – about sweet little 3 1/2 year old Ryan from California. Tragically Ryan was struck by a truck while playing at his cousins house and was killed. His mom Jacqui, is a mommy blogger and the community has wrapped their arms around her and her husband Dan, rallying to raise money and send some healing comfort to them in this incomprehensibly difficult time. Jacqui’s best friend Alissa asked that this mother’s day, everyone send a red balloon to Ryan….and so we did, from the tippy top of the Rockies. Below is a photo from Jacqui’s Instagram of her and her husband, Dan sending some balloons to their little man…. my heart just aches for them.

Amanda and I traded session back in October and it was so great to finally get a chance to photograph her and her two sweet little ladies. When I take these types of images, I take them with the children in mind. These images are not just for us as parents but for our children, our children's children and so on. Think for ...
