"If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams".  - Roald Dahl

The Brophys recently found me through my Mother's Day mini sessions to benefit Every Mother Counts* - Dad surprised Mom with this as a gift (the sweetest, right?). If you live around Chester County, you'll know that the weather forecast has 99% unreliable for the past few weeks, the heat sweltering and the rain sudden and fierce. After some hemming, hawing and a little nail-biting on my part as to whether the weather would cooperate at all, we settled on an evening that ended up giving us the most perfect light--as if that's what was meant to be all along.  Cheesy as it may sound, love and happiness literally radiated out of all three of them, a collective family unit of shining sunbeams. And the ice cream! Little Mackenzie went after that cone like a champ, and I love that her parents were not one bit fussed about what might happen to her dress. As her mom said to me, life is short--I can't think of a better reason to enjoy every moment as much as humanly possible.
