About two weeks ago, I had the honor of photographing something very special. A year ago, on March 6 2013, a beautiful, 2 year old boy went to heaven. He was a twin brother to Gianna, and a sweet and loving son to Christina and John. As a tribute to his short, precious life, family and friends gathered to release balloons in his memory exactly a year later.
From his mother Christina: “Anthony was such an amazing boy full of happiness and strength even though he has passed he still continues to impact my life and the lives of so many around us.
I want to thank everyone so much for making Anthony’s Heaven Day Balloon Release so special. We are so blessed to have the love and support of so many friends and family. I also want to thank Lindsay Parks so much for dedicating her time and talent to photograph this special day.
On April 27th we will be walking in the March of Dimes March for Babies Walk in Forest Hill. We started our family team “Team Sanzone Twins” in 2011. As most of you know the twins were born 2 months early and spent time in the NICU at Franklin Square and then were transferred to Mt Washington Pediatric Hospital..the March of Dimes had representatives at the NICU that were always there for support and guidance. This charity is so near and dear to our hearts and with Anthony passing last year we walk in honor of his memory. If you are interested in being part of our team and walking with us please us this link to join our team.
If you are unable to walk but want to donate you can do so at this link as well.
The money raised helps support research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives.

Christina wanted to also share this tribute slideshow she made for Anthony.
