I would like to introduce you to Mason. He has such a special story to tell. He was born with a deformed esophagus which wouldn’t allow him to swallow. At only six months of age, he has had three surgeries. Because of this, he has an nasal feeding tube. While his esophagus is now well formed, his throat hasn’t learned how to successfully swallow yet, but it will.
Now, the mom of course wanted beautiful pictures of her sweet son. She had waited at first in hopes the tube would be removed, but that day kept getting pushed back. Every time she made an appointment for pictures, he ended up in the hospital. So fast forward to a few weeks ago, she is in the grocery story, lamenting about never getting pictures, and a stranger says, “You know Firefly Nights Photography does a lot of work with special needs kids.” And then she found me. I don’t know who it was who directed her to me, but thank you! This little guy is a gem!
Now the last part of this crazy tale is that they were moving the week after the session, so as we speak, they no longer live here, but have moved far away! I hate meeting a great new client only to lose them, but I will always remember them.
On to the introductions – everyone, meet Mason!
So while the dad is Canadian, the mom is from Texas. Here is his two worlds – the Texas Baby and the Canada Baby:
So the mom would love for her son not to have his ng tube, so told her it was an option to edit it out. I sent these to RetouchUp.com, and they did some amazing work!!
