Today’s photo shoot was bittersweet. On one hand, we had an adorable subject, Damiano, here for his 1st birthday portraits and cake smash. On the other hand, his parents and grandmother had heavy hearts. Their cousin, Kevin Adorno, was stabbed to death on Monday in Florida. He was on the last leg of a cycling journey of the East Coast when he stopped to talk to his girlfriend on the phone and use the facilities of a nearby McDonalds. He had plans to propose to her when they met to finish the last portion of the trip together. So, in the midst of such a tragic week for his family, we have this little boy. He won’t remember meeting his cousin, but he’ll remember that he loved to ride.

It was a pleasure to work with Damiano’s family and try to help them find something to smile about in the midst of such sadness. He was a very active little boy who loved playing with all of the toys I laid out for him! When it came time for the cake, he went right into it! I hope you enjoy my latest session and take time to appreciate a life taken too soon. Look up the story of Kevin Adorno and you will see why he meant so much to so many people. Till next time, ~Kristin
