This family is very special to me, they are my cousins and aunt. For Lauren's First Communion portraits, we took some in the studio with natural light, and a few at North Catholic High School in the prayer garden. Lauren and Justin were also able to light a candle for their daddy, my sweet, loving Uncle Dave, who recently passed away unexpectedly. He did get to see his daughter make her first communion this past spring, which was a wonderful opportunity for our family to get together. Lauren and Justin are now blessed with a very special guardian angel. I certainly felt his presence as we were taking these photos on such a beautiful day - sunny, blue skies, with a gentle, cool breeze.
