Lennon’s First Birthday Party

Lennon’s First Birthday Party’s Story from Erin:

“When I read Meg’s family session inquiry form, I cried. I really did. She was able to articulate the entirety of her family in two perfect paragraphs. I found myself already in love with them and I hadn’t even met them yet. Meg’s family has been through some “pretty tough stuff” the past couple of years. Her son, Tyson, “was born with a severe form of congenital heart disease called Shone’s Complex and he spent a long time in the hospital after he was born.” Tyson, in fact, spent 125 days in the hospital (you can SEE his story here: “It was horrible,” she wrote, “and hard but we were making it…The day our little Lennon was born was the day I felt true happiness again… she has been my angel, where Tyson has been my will to live.” Wow. Very deep and so raw. I knew immediately that I needed to meet this family. The best part? I was meeting them for Lennon’s first birthday party! I arrived at their home to the perfect mix of organized chaos; food was being prepared in the kitchen, Lennon was finishing her meal, Tyson was hammering for a sandwich, family and friends were arriving with gifts and yummy food. I moved around them like a little bee, just snapping away…perfectly happy to be in the mix of such great people. My time together with them ended with a good-ole cake smash for Lennon. And from what I soon learned, this child is a champ with the food. She absolutely devoured her handmade strawberry cake. It. Was. Awesome.”
