I am very excited to preview this special session I had with a family from the Twin Cities area. Meet the Amlee’s; Kate, Roger, Joshua, Charlie, and Kate’s brother Andy. The Amlee family was referred to me in April by a common acquaintance who heard about my give-away sessions for families with members who have Down syndrome. The Amlee family is double blessed with Andy and Charlie both having Ds. Andy is Kate’s brother and Charlie is Kate and Roger’s little boy who is a little darling of 2 years old. I know I say this every time, but every time it is true, it was a blessing and honor to photograph this family! I enjoyed getting to know them.
Josh was a polite young man who was pretty sure he deserved some ice cream after waking up early for the session. I think all that sleep is necessary for a guy who is that tall and learning how to drive! Josh was very gentle with Charlie, such a great big brother.
Charlie is definitely a momma’s boy! He was standing a bit on his own but preferred either his mother’s arms or even his Uncle Andy, though I LOVE the photo of Charlie snuggling with his dad <3
Andy was such a polite man! He was very helpful and went right along with what we needed him to do. He liked to see the photos I was taking. I hope he enjoys seeing all of them!
Kate was excited to give some of the photos of just her and Andy to their mom. I imagine she was delighted as well. Photographs make perfect gifts! Which is why the fall is such a busy time of year 🙂
Roger and Kate, you are both lovely parents and it was a joy to meet you and your family! Please stay in touch!
