When people ask me how to structure their family session, I often advise an activity-based approach. Think about an activity that your family likes to do - that could be baking together or family movie night or splashing in puddles - and lets do it together.
Today's blog post is about the gorgeous Cardona Family. They were in Seattle recently working with the good people at Seattle Children's Hospital and they invited me to meet their family at the playground for some good old fun and then to follow them to the hospital and each lunch with them and meet their team. Of course you know I JUMPED at the chance. It's an incredible honor to be invited into all of your lives and I treasure every moment.
I don't talk about it very often, but medical fragility is part of my story of motherhood and my son's story of personhood. I know what it's like to leave all your friends in their healthy world and go live in the world of sick. I know what bravery looks like and I know what strength is about and I am honored to travel to play with this family at Seahurst Park and then drive over to Children's Hospital and work hard at the business of healing. I hope you enjoy my documentation of incredibly resilience and strength.
