I decided recently to take on a couple of personal projects a year, somethings outside of the '8 years and under' category to keep my creative juices flowing, and to just help break up the norm.
My first project was a lovely couple celebrating their 5 year wedding anniversary, and less than a week later, my second personal project came to me under much more serious circumstances.
This is Amanda and her daughter Abagail. Amanda was just recently diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer. Her close friend hired me to photograph her and her little girl as a gift. I can't imagine the hard road that is ahead of this family that I just met, but I found out tonight via her FB page that she and I have a mutual friend...his name is Jesus. He is my healer, and he is hers too.
If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, myself and Amanda ask that you pray for her. I know she will be added to my daily conversations I have with my savior.
