If you’ve ever lived in Florida, you know the plight of our weather. One moment it’s bright and sunny, the next instant there’s a flash flood! Thus was the afternoon I spent with the Alonso family. We started out with a sweet kiss of sun, which suddenly become so warm, we actually headed to the cars to wait it out and give the little ones a chance to cool down. A quick ten minutes later, the sky became eerily dark, with strong winds and an obvious threat of imminent rain.
Despite the circumstances, there was great success. Precious moments of an entire family gathered together. Hugs, smiles and kisses. Songs sung to little ones by adoring dads. Curls that will seriously melt your heart. It was a Florida afternoon, which though full of many unexpected surprises, was completely redeemed by the love that was displayed in each interaction by these 8 individuals!
Thank you Alonso, Edmonds and Martinez families for trusting me to document this precious season in your lives.
