These are the kind of stories I love to tell.  Cassidi, a senior I had already photographed in the summer was coming back for a fall session too.  We rescheduled it many times in hopes of getting a family pic during that session.  You see, her dad was battling cancer again.  We kept rescheduling in hopes of catching him on a good day.  He was weak and had lost a lot of weight but hopeful we’d find a time when he was better to participate.  The longer we delayed her session, the harder I prayed for him.  And finally, a couple weeks ago, we had a good day.  Not just a good day but a great day cause shortly before that his scans came back and they found out he is cancer free now.  🙂

Heather also snapped a couple photos of Cassidi’s parents together, which we’ve shared below!
