Pritchett Family | Bird Haven Greenhouse
Joliet, Illinois Family Photography
I learned about two things the day I met the Pritchett family. One is that I LOVED shooting inside a greenhouse! So much pretty light, everywhere! It was so warm and beautiful inside which was a nice break from the snowy weather outside. Bird Haven Greenhouse was even decorated for the holidays. We took advantage of the lights on the trees and festive red decor. It is a beautiful place to have photos taken or even have a wedding! Because there are multiple rooms or areas within Bird Haven Greenhouse, you can get a variety of backdrops in your photos including cactus!
The other thing I learned is how much of a fighter their youngest son, Mason, is. He has a rare blood disorder called Severe Congenital Neutropenia. This means he receives chemo and is waiting for a bone marrow transplant. Looking at Mason, you would never know any of that. His smile immediately makes you smile. He is so sweet, pure, and so obviously full of love that just radiates off of him.
Overall, I am so thankful to have crossed paths with this incredibly strong and kind family. If you would like to follow Mason’s journey and cheer his cute little self on, click here to go to their Facebook page.
