Sessions like this make my heart leap out of my chest... 

This session was photographed on Mother's Day weekend.. It has been a story I have been wanting to share for some time now.  When Christena contacted me through my website saying this:

" I live in the Bahamas and will be traveling up with my 2 yr old son to Long Island for a few days from May 7 - 9.  I absolutely love your photographs - especially the way you capture kids.We are going up to meet a very special little girl (my son's biological half sister who is only 3 weeks older than him).Both of our families used the same donor and we just found out about each other!  I'd love to know if you're free for May 9th (or on the preceding weekend - even though that's Mother's Day weekend)"

I was so very touched with their story and getting to know Jenny and Christena through email that I could not wait to meet them all. 

It was a perfect Spring day, they were so open and warm that the session happened so naturally and effortlessly.

Look at how brother and sister got along!

And how absolutely adorable they both are..

When I post about my sessions I cannot even express how much I love my job.  It is a feeling that is indescribable.  Then when the sessions have a meaning so grand, you cannot imagine how amazingly blessed I feel knowing that Jenny and Christena trusted this monumental event to me. 

Jenny and Christena, you are both nurturing, kind and effortlessly compassionate.  I thank you not only for allowing me to capture this moment in your life, but for showing the support and kindness to me and my family over the past few months.  I hope if you ever travel back this way Christena you all think of me again to capture the bond between H & R.

I would love to share their story, in their own words over at DonorSiblingRegistry.com.  Here is part of the story..

On February 1, 2011, I entered my donor dad's ID# and up popped a message that said Girl Born Nov2008. My son was born in December of 2008. Not only did my son have a biological half sister, but they were almost exactly the same age. The joy and excitement that overwhelmed me on reading that simple message was totally unanticipated. I wrote to the parents as quickly as my shaking fingers allowed.

In the ensuing months, we have written back and forth at least 100 times. We have exchanged lots of pictures and stories. We have sent gifts back and forth. We, and our kids, have talked on video Skype. And on May 6th, our flight touched down at JFK airport and we got to spend the most joyous Mother's Day weekend together.

The two children look enough alike to be twins! (I guess in a way, they actually are.) What a wonderful moment you got to share with these families.
