Heart Ball 2012 in Chattanooga, TN

Posted on 08. Feb, 2012 by in Children, Portraits

Wanted to share an image from a session yesterday. The Sears family kindly agreed to come in for me to photograph them and their son and daughter for the upcoming Heart Gala. The little boy was born with a congenital heart defect and so far in his short 5 years has had twenty three surgeries. His skin has a tendency to have a bluish cast because he doesn’t get enough oxygen. He was amazing, one of the happiest and sweetest little boys I have had the opportunity to photograph.

Whenever I meet someone like him it reminds me that no matter what the circumstances of our life we have the ability to choose to enjoy it. He was so friendly, outgoing and a big hugger!

Hope this reminds everyone of how much you have to be thankful for and to take the time to show those important people in your life how much you appreciate them.
