I know that I have say it over and over, but I am so drawn to the story. Every family really has one, and often times we have no idea the struggles and trials each goes through throughout their lives, it is only when we invest in relationships and dive into their hearts that we really truly see it. Dad worked with my husband at the Las Vegas City Fire Department for almost two decades, and when you are with someone for 24 hours a shift, you are bound to develop deep relationships. This dad is brilliant and such a hard worker. We talked so many times about scheduling a family session, but as with many dads, it seemed like not such a fun idea, but really knew that mom would love it. I get it, so many dads feel this way. They have memories of photography sessions with cheesy grins, forced poses, and unhappy kids.
Everything changed in late November when Linda found a lump on her chest, and their whole lives were changed. Faced with rounds of chemotherapy and a the likelihood of a mastectomy documenting their family just as they are now became tremendously important and he reached out to me to see if I could fit them in before she began her treatments and began losing her hair. Of course, I said yes. I can tell you that as we shot their session their love for each other was just so palpable. They loved on each other, they played with each other, and it was so beautiful to watch.
