This session was the perfect example of why documenting the everyday is so important. Beautiful, intelligent, funny, loving Avery is three years old, and she has already beat cancer in her young life.
I asked Avery’s mom, Tiffany, to share a little about their experience:
“After a few months of Avery being ill, we received the news that no parent ever wants to hear. Our sweet little Avery, only 27 months old, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma cancer on April 9, 2013. Avery had an extensive abdominal surgery to remove her tumor and spent a few weeks in the hospital. She has since shown no evidence of disease and continues to be monitored by her amazing doctors. Each time we go for a checkup, she shows us how strong and brave she truly is. Avery is doing absolutely amazing and thriving more and more everyday. She loves to swim, play and has become quite the artist. Family time is so very, very important to our family even with the simplest of things like playing in the backyard playground to singing Katy Perry in our playroom. Prayers for Avery’s continued health are always greatly appreciated!!!”
I was incredibly humbled to photograph a day in the life of this amazing family. A little bike riding, exploring the garden, putting on a “concert”, and playing baseball are all such simple things that this family now cherishes even more. I loved my time with them so very much!
