Sometimes there is a lot more to a photo than meets the eye. I’m so grateful to their mama for sharing her family’s story with us:

“Our favourite photo is the one of Jack and Alice holding hands.”

“This one means so much to me as Jack has only recently started to engage with Alice and interact with her. When she was first born, he wouldn’t speak to me for eight weeks and he wouldn’t acknowledge his sister at all! Now that she is 15 months and mobile, he has begun to engage with her and it melts my heart. Too see him holding her hand, (even tentatively) is amazing. It has also been quite a difficult year and Jack was recently diagnosed with meeting the criteria for ASD so I love that he was engaged with you and looking at the camera! Thank you so much for making this experience easy on us and fun for the kids. You are an amazing photographer!”
