PLAY TIME WITH MOM AND DAD

Blake is the happiest little one year old that I've met! I was so lucky to spend an afternoon with her and her parents at Family House. Blake was being so silly the whole time, which reminded me of all of my sessions with kiddos her age. They aren't totally into photo shoots! They want to play, run around and be thrown in the air (which can all happen at your session), but they don't always love to ham it up in front of a camera. She gave me similar stares as other little one year olds. The stare says something along the lines of I don't know you and I don't understand why you are here. Usually after a bit, the kids forget about me and have a great time with their parents, which is exactly what happened with Blake. I got to see a little bit of her wonderful personality, and I'm so excited to share it with you!

Blake was 11 months with diagnosis, 1 week before her first birthday. She had an aggressive brain tumor called AT/RT.

Our daughter is currently NED (no evidence of disease), but has a year of maintenance chemo ahead of her.

It was a huge shock for all of us and fear, chaos and craziness entered our lives. We almost lost her and only one surgeon was willing to do the surgery. Blake has been a true warrior princess and has shown a lot of strength, power and laughter to us all, despite everything. Luckily we have a strong support system that gave us strength to carry on.

My advice would be..as hard as it is, try to stay positive, keep trying to be a team and love on each other and try to make the best of every day.
