A house of love and books

I started my day on Sunday with a wonderful little 2 year old girl. Her grandma called me months ago, and told me all about little sweet H. Her cerebral palsy means that she sometimes has a tough time in new environments, so her grandma thought an in-home photoshoot would be a great holiday present for her mom and dad.

What was wonderful to see was H and her grandma spending such nice time together… reading books is their favorite activity. H’s eyes lit up as she looked through the books:

She did a great job holding her head up while they looked at books, too – pointing and recognizing her favorite sections of the books. This is really hard for her, and she did so well:

She took a break in the middle of the shoot to watch a bit of her favorite Mickey Mouse on TV, and I’ve found this with other children I’ve photographed who’ve spent a lot of time in the hospital – often for them, TV is almost a stimulant. It’s really neat to see. Look at that grin!

Taking a quiet moment with grandma reading a book:

And Janet, you’ll have to correct me if I’m wrong, but I think H is doing one of her signs here – am I right?

Happy girl!

And after digging through her toys, she found a favorite toy :)
It was really wonderful to spend time with you guys. Can’t wait to show you the rest of the photos!
