A few weeks ago, I was invited into the home of Dara, Charlie and Zeljko and was joined by Nena, Ljuba, Stefie and Amelia, for a very special family session. It was truly wonderful to meet Nena’s family that she has told me a lot about over the last six months. After meeting them, I could see the strength, love and wisdom that Dara and Charlie give to their children. It’s written all over their faces. They have done a wonderful job raising their children, and I’m sure, they are very proud of Zeljko and Nena.
While I was photographing Dara and Charlie, I asked each of them to look at one another and tell me how they remember feeling when they first met each other. Their response was the same! Dara said she remembered how handsome Charlie was, and Charlie remembered how beautiful Dara was. There was such a beautiful emotion between the two of them. It brought a tear to my eye.
Next, a big group shot and some one on one images with mom and dad. At first, I thought Nena looked exactly like her mom, but then I realized she looks a lot like her dad too. What do you think?
Now, on to some fun with the kids and their dad, Ljuba. What great smiles we caught!
But eventually, all photo sessions must come to an end, and we got the signal loud and clear!
Thank you, Nena, for inviting me to be a part of your family’s life on this special day. You, and your family, is forever in my heart and prayers.
