You never know when in life you are going to meet people who will leave a lasting and reoccurring impression in your life. When I was pregnant with my first son, Aiden, I met this beautiful couple as they awaited the arrival of their younger son, Marco. We hit it off instantly, and this is now my third year in a row photographing their gorgeous family. Big brother Rafaelito is such a sweet guy, and a true mama’s boy. Marco is on the adventurous side, and looks up to his big brother! Together, these two little guys have so much fun. I have loved watching their relationship grow over the last three years. I know that they will navigate through life together as brothers and best friends.
I have to say that this is a family of beautiful smiles. All four of them light up when they smile, and when they are with each other there are plenty of smiles. There is so much love between them,. They are truly a joy to photograph, and I look forward to it each year!
And, as it ended up, Marco and my son, Aiden, are only a week apart!
