When I got the call to photograph the McClintock family, I remembered the family I met with back in December of 2016. At the time, Stephanie was preparing to undergo round one of chemotherapy and had wanted pictures before she shaved her hair. I didn’t know what to expect that day, but I found a positive and and strong lady who wasn’t letting cancer faze her. And she didn’t. She was declared in cancer-free just a few months later.
Fast forward sixteen months, Stephanie and Robby welcomed baby boy Eivin into their family. This joyful event was quickly overshadowed by the discovery of cancer on the placenta. Further testing revealed cancer in Stephanie’s lungs and liver. Cancer has mounted another attack and, while scared for the future, she is prepared for this great battle once again. Thankfully, as this couple begins another round of oncology, chemotherapy, radiation, and drug cocktails, they have a strong support system to help with Eivin and the couple’s three older children.
Below are a few of my favorites from this family’s newborn lifestyle session welcoming Eivin into the family and providing Steph with new portraits of her family. Steph, all of my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family now and in the coming months. You got this, girl! Sign me up for a remission celebration photo shoot soon!
