This morning, bright and early, I had a shoot with the Bishop family. I go a ways back with this sweet family--Russ and I used to work together at my old church before I became a photographer. We've been through a lot together. They were a huge support to my family when my dad had a brain aneurysm 6 years ago.

Russ got the very sad and shocking news a week and a half ago that he has liver cancer. He's only 47 years old and everyone who knows and loves him is shocked to say the least. In the midst of this very trying time, I feel so blessed to be able to give them the gift of photography.

The lighting wasn't ideal this morning--the sun was already super-high in the sky and we were working with a park setting--but we did our best and got some great shots. Here's the whole fam. From L to R: Cody is Russ and Robyn's youngest, Robyn, Russ, Ashley is their oldest and she married Luke. Ashley & Luke have two kids--Josiah is almost two and Reaghan is 4 months.
Here are a few more of my faves:
For those of you who pray, Russ is going into surgery at 7:30am pst tomorrow (Wednesday). It sounds like it's going to be a tough surgery. Pray for God's power to be shown mightily! And if you'd like to follow this family's journey, they've set up a blog--click here.
