Photo Shoot

This past Friday I was asked to come to the American Heart Association office in Charleston to take pictures of some of the local heart kids. They are throwing a ball in the near future and needed a photographer to help with the invitations.
I said "of course!".

Everything went as expected with toddlers in a small office...

Energy! Excitement! Meltdowns!

But it was fun. I was able to get some good shots for the invites and the kids had fun playing with each other and running around the AHA office.

I was watching the kids play and I noticed one of the AHA guys talking to two other heart moms. I thought nothing of it till one of the moms, Kathy, came up to me and asked if I would mind if they included Corbin.

I immediately broke down crying.

It was so unexpected and so sweet that I couldn't help but cry! It never crossed my mind that we would do something like that. It just meant so much to me.
So I wiped the tears from my face and recomposed myself. I grabbed one of my photo props, a chalkboard, and wrote "Corbin's Warriors" on it. One of the older heart kids was nice enough to pose with it while I tried to get a picture of all the kids looking at me.

I can't wait to get a copy of that picture.

A big thank you to the American Heart Association for being so great and taking the time to include my Peanut. A thank you as well to my fellow heart moms and their kids, it was fun hanging out with them all.

It's the little things like that, that really make my day. Those moments will always be with me and I am so thankful. <3
