Our photo shoot with Loren










































































































Well, here is the big surprise! We had a photo shoot done with my amazing friend Loren, at Irene Farm on Saturday to mark 1 year since last chemo, and it was a birthday present from my wonderful husband work - i just love them and cant wait to get the disc to see them all! Shall post more soon! Deqlan had a great time in the leaves, being swooshed around in the water, , discovering stones and rocks and water and leaves and trees and all things boys love! Please visit Loren's site - she is amazing and we all agree that photos and memories captured by Loren are priceless! www.lorenstow.co.za www.lorenstowphotography.blogspot.com

Our Precious Darling Samm, Mark and Deqlan,

These photos are exquisite and have genuinely captured the essence of you as the most special, extraordinary and inspirational family that you are.

Love, in its purest form is the emotion which overpowers the viewer. Love for each other, so obvious in the eyes of an adored son and his two loving parents. Breathtaking emotions made so clearly visible.
Pure innocence seems to vibrate from the visual images, so much so one wants to reach out and touch those hands, that face, ......feel the leaves and breathe in the summer air which permeated the shoot.

The photos in themselves are testimony to Loren Stow's talent for capturing "the moment", the here, the now, the fleeting but unforgettable moments in time.

Mark, what a beautiful birthday gift from you is this photo shoot (for Samm's 30th in two weeks' time) A superb idea and a real celebration of your victory, the exuberance of life, all its hopes and promises for a glorious future.

Samm, for you, cherished and wonderful moments, now not only captured in your heart, mind and "book of memory" but also on disk for all time.... done on a very special day, for a very special reason, for a very special wife and mother. You radiate such grace, dignity and quiet, impeccable strength, and your expressions reflect the promises, hope, faith and love for all your tomorrows for your son, for yourself, for your husband, for your family.

Deqlan, these photos honestly and realistically reflect what a truly beautiful little boy you are, from the top of your magnificent golden haired head to the tips of those cute, tiny toes we love to kiss so much, to the warmth, abundant affection, love and cuteness that just oozes from the inside ....... an adorable toddler, unique, with an energetic and exciting zest for living and exploring and you are our special, special cherished hero. We are privileged and honoured every day ....... we get to hug, kiss, tickle, hold, laugh with, play with, dance with, rest with, jacuzzi with, drive with, eat with, even sometimes cry with ... the REAL, INIMITABLE HERO, DEQLAN ROSS.

May these photos forever remind you all of just how far you have come, how much you have conquered and how gloriously victorious you are in your celebration.

We love you so very dearly and are honoured to be your parents, in-laws and grandparents.

Once again, well done Loren.

All our love,

Mom/Bev and Dee

Nanna and Grandpa

Hi Samm!
Thank you so much for the wonderful words on my pictures. It is easy when I work with such wonderful models! Children at Deqlan's age don't lie, they don't pretend and they don't 'pose' for the camera - that is what makes the pictures so wonderful - they reflect him, in his natural way... perfect and uncomplicated.
Thank you for choosing me again and again to take pictures for you!
