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.
Vatican and Drea melt my heart, having first set eyes on each other in the 3rd grade, then making it official in the 8th grade (see the very last images for a cuteness overload).
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.
Drea’s makeup by my beautiful friend and makeup artist Chantelle Brown.
OMG mama tears….these are beautiful Nicole ❤… a little boy walked up to my husband to let him know he was Lexi’s boyfriend (they’re 4) I think Troy had a mild heart attack…
