awww, you know you wanna pinch those cheeks, all 3 of them {St. Louis Outdoor Family Photographer}

They found out at the 20 week ultrasound that their sweet bundle of joy would be born with very complex congenital heart disease.  He would have to undergo many surgeries and one, at just age 11 months, would be an 11 hour ordeal.  But Grant did well in the care of Stanford’s Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, and after several surgeries and a long recovery he finally went home.

“He is bright, funny and rotten, and we love him to pieces.” his mother boldly claims; after meeting him and the whole family I see it’s true.  Grant and his brothers, Nate and Finn are absolutely adorable…and happy…and loved! What I admire most about Lisa and Scott, is they love and treat all three boys the same.

I truly enjoyed photographing the Bullinger-Pappalardo Family and making them new friends too. Enjoy a few of my favorites!
