I always enjoy meeting new people, but I never knew how much fun it could be to meet new kids until I worked with Shaun and Gabriella. At 4 and 2, respectively, these kiddos are full of energy and fun. Their silly antics kept everyone laughing, and Shaun even contributed some of his own ideas to the shoot.
By contrast, the first time I met Sabrina, I was struck by her grace and beauty. Being the mother of two small children isn’t always easy, but Sabrina carries herself with a peaceful sophistication that seems to resonate through all those with whom she comes in contact—myself included.
The five—soon to be six—of us spent the afternoon at a small park in Bethesda, enjoying the change in seasons and contemplating the future. It’s exciting any time a family welcomes a new life. But for the Garcia Santos family, the addition of a baby seems especially joyful.
Love is at the center of this family. I smile knowing how lucky the new baby will be to have such caring parents and energetic, cheerful siblings.
