I know this session was back from the fall, but I had to share it because there is a story and depth to this family and it brings a reminder that life comes full circle.
Nearly four years ago my family was going through the scariest time of our lives when our middle child was diagnosed with cancer at two years old. But God brought me such a sense of peace during that time and our community blanketed it us with so.much.love. Including mama Venus, pictured here. Between our daughter coming home from the hospital after the diagnosis and prepping to go back a few days later for a major surgery, Venus offered our family a free photo session right then. We still have one of those images hanging in our bedroom as a reminder of God's goodness and the community that loved us well.
Flash forward to this past fall when I ran into Venus and she asked to get on my schedule for family pictures. I knew then, I wanted to be able to gift them one as a thank you for what she did for my family. I wanted her to know here act of kindness four years ago, still holds dear to my heart.
And to top it all off she just asked for a really low key session where they weren't overly posed and could just be them, which is always my favorite way to go.
