My Other Children…Gasp! │ Connecticut Photographer

This past summer I had the pleasure to take photos of Jared, Sarah and Allena….to us they are our extended family.  We met several years ago at a homeschool co-op and since have developed an extremely close relationship.

There is something so special about these three, and I love them so dearly.  Jared is hilarious and so much fun to be around.  He is gentle and shy, yet genuine and outgoing.  He loves children and they love him!  My little one hangs all over him and he genuinely enjoys her company.  He will make an extraordinary father someday.

Sarah is brilliant when it comes to academics and life.  She has so much wisdom for her young age.  She wanted to be president from the first day I met her, and the way she’s going I’m sure she’ll make it there eventually.  She’ll be going off to college soon and I know there is not a  school around that will not accept her.  She’s brilliant and beautiful, inside and out!

Last but not least, Allena is the wittiest girl I’ve ever met.  She is my Sarah’s best friend and like another daughter to me.  Together we gang up on my Sarah, and we all get a good laugh.  Allena is outgoing and she speaks her mind, even to me.  That’s probably what I love about her so much.  She is so genuine.  She is studying graphic design…a girl after my own heart, and I can’t wait to see what she does with her future….I could go on and on about them.   Truly I could…but most importantly, they have strong, godly parents that gave them a great foundation.

When you put these three together, it’s sure to be a day to remember.  Now that all of them are away; Sarah and Allena in boarding school, and Jared in another state, we don’t get to see each other too often, but it’s a blast when we do!

Love you guys….hope I didn’t embarrass you too much 🙂

    These are even more impressive here on your site than they were on Facebook. What a gorgeous family! I so wish you could give me a few lessons. 🙂 Maybe more than a few…ReplyCancel

      Thank you Gail! It’s the large size; Facebook compresses them.ReplyCancel
