This sweet mother and son family session is over a year in the making! These two have been through so much including a battle with breast cancer. Last year, Lara was gifted a session by her sister as a way to make some happy memories during this difficult time. We emailed back and forth for a year waiting for her to go into remission and build up strength. It was so amazing to finally meet in person and see her smile.
It is so clear that this mother and son share a very special bond. They truly enjoy each other and had so much fun exploring the grounds of the Griffith Observatory. We even took a break for a round of lego building which is something they both enjoy doing together. Jake was a true pleasure to be around. He is so naturally curious and was in awe of exploring this historic Los Angeles landmark. He even obliged my picture taking!
My heart is full of joy in being able to show this strong survivor and mother just how beautiful she is, a son how deeply he is loved and the world the love between a mother and son.
