we did it again! what can i say? two years ago I met up with cynthia and brandon in maine to do a family session. it was a very emotional time for them as their family had just been reunited after two years of medical kidnapping, which also stole cynthia’s grandfather away from them. i can’t even imagine what it must be like to go through something like having your months-old baby taken away from you, husband thrown in prison, and all of the consequence of this… all because of some false accusations against brandon. as it turns out, medical testing proved he was innocent (as he had always said he was) and the children were returned to them. i was visiting my grandma’s hometown and had a little much-needed downtime, as Maine is amazing for, and as they are extended family was aware of their journey towards reunification. i just kept feeling that they had had so much time taken away from them, and that the memories of their little ones being… well… little, were tainted by this horrible experience. I wanted to give them something better to hold on to… so i got in touch with cynthia and offered her a free photo session for this very reason. they were ecstatic. they were also expecting….
fast forward two years and, who knew? i was back in town. this time to photograph cynthia’s little sister’s wedding. i was excited to meet their youngest, and we decided make a proper booking this time. i was also traveling with my fiancé Javi, so everyone got to meet and the kids absolutely adored playing with him.
So… when can we do this again?
