These two are the epitome of true love. Before you scroll through the images though, I would love for you to CLICK AND PLAY THIS SONG, because it is what I think of when I think of my son. If you can’t see hear the video in the link, then find Tim McGraw’s song, Humble & Kind on iTunes or whatever other music medium you use. I swear it will add a whole other dimension to how the storybook of images below make you feel.
These two are now 19 years old, and are a beautiful example of what love is. I have been hanging on to these images for over a year, because I don’t think that I was ready to accept the fact that my baby boy was now a man, and had grown up so quickly before my eyes.
We wanted to give them a very non-traditional prom photoshoot, something that they could look back on and not cringe at (you know exactly what I mean), so we got them dressed, and took them to the beach. It is here where I knew they could be the most free, and it be a symbol of unlimited horizons.
We love you both so much xoxo
The very last image is a photo of them in at their 9th grade prom, and beneath that is their grade 3 class photo where they sat together (so many heart eyes); forgive the photo quality.
