when lina, the mama of this darling family, inquired with me about booking a session, she explained that their dream of a day would include an afternoon picnic, climbing trees, a few other lovely things and then “maybe even a wooden swing that could sit the whole family”! well, she had me from there! i got donny working right away on building a swing for four. we hung it beneath a lovely large oak tree… it took a while to get that big ole’ swing swingin, a few folks fell off now and then, there was a lot of cuddling happening to keep them all on there and we were all laughing up a storm within the first few minutes. i really adore this family. they smile with their eyes, they play with intention, they take time to listen to each other and they hug tightly. blissful indeed.
