A few months ago, I was contacted by a Baltimore photographer. She was searching for a photographer near Charlottesville to take pictures of a family who had recently been through quite a lot in the past 2 years.
Katie and Michael and their son Edward have much to be thankful for. You see, Eddie has had to fight for his life twice and he isn’t even 2 years old yet! He was born at 25 weeks and spent 100 days in the NICU, and then had to battle a rare pediatric cancer.
He recently finished chemo and his prognosis sounds excellent! I so enjoyed meeting this inspiring, sweet family. I love family sessions, but this one was extra special. I think that I appreciate life and my kiddos a little more after hearing their story:)
Thanks again Katie, Michael and Eddie for allowing me to capture what I hope and pray is the beginning of a better “normal” for you all!
*And thank you Aunt Amy for giving this gift to them. I hope that these images are ones they will forever look back on to remind them of their blessings!
