The Topanta family got together to celebrate a beautiful woman and her life as a wife, mother, and now grandmother. If you ask me Lorraine doesn’t look a day over forty and that’s all anyone needs to know about how many candles she had on her cake this year. Christina, her eldest daughter, had shared with me at her recent maternity session that her and her family wanted to surprise their mom with some birthday photos. First off I love birthdays and then photo session surprises are even more of a treat! I was excited to reconnect (the Topanta sister’s and I went to high school together…go Tigers!) with their sweet sweet as can be family. Lorraine couldn’t thank me enough for the wonderful surprise. It was really all Mr. T’s (so cool, right?) and his family’s idea. I was just there to document that love that bonds families together. All I could think of was, wow you look exactly how I remember at all of our track meets. I was going to say how lovely all the Topanta women are, but they aren’t all Topantas anymore. They’ve grown up and now are married. On top of that their baby brother isn’t such a baby anymore either! He’s one handsome young man and his girlfriend also came to join in on the festivities. What a perfect bunch!
So here’s to a beautiful happy birthday photo session for Lorraine! I wish you many many more candles on that birthday cake and a bundle more grandchildren (because this first one is just a doll) as well!
