I have been shooting the N Family and their two little girls for years now. They recently wanted to do an extended family shoot with their parents and their brother and his family. We got together on a beautiful, crisp, Spring afternoon, and had a lovely time laughing, hugging, and hanging out. Ms. E (the smallest of the N Family) was a little off her game on this particular day, but that’s par for the course at this age 😀

Amber, the N’s sister-in-law, is currently fighting stage 4 cancer. She is one strong, amazing woman. You can read about her battle in her own words here on her blog. You can also join in helping her and her family with some of the medical expenses that all of this costs; they are having a benefit for her Sunday, May 4 at Bourbon. You can get tickets, donate money, or just see what it’s all about at Cancer Can Kiss It.

Please keep this family in your prayers as they go through this very difficult process together — holding one another up, walking together the whole way. Enjoy the photos, too. I’m honored to know and photograph these wonderful people.
