“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” — Maya Angelou

Years from now if someone were to ask me to make a list of the most influential people who have made a difference in my life there is absolutely no doubt that Chance’s doctor would make the list. Nearly a year ago after learning Chance had spina bifida she was the one we found gave us the most optimism and helped us see the hope we had ahead for our baby boy. Since he was born she’s been there so many times as Chance has been in and out of the hospital, including performing 6 of the 8 surgeries he has had. It seems as though every time we’ve faced uncertainties with Chance before and after he was born she has been there for our family. We’ve joked this past year that we’ve seen Chance & my doctor’s so often that they’ve pretty much become like family. We definitely don’t know how we would have made it through half as much as we have without their support.

A couple months after having Chance I learned his doctor was expecting her second child so I was honored when she asked me to take his newborn photos. I don’t know if my photography quite compares to the care or support she’s given our family but hopefully spending a bit of time with her family helps bring her family a world of happiness with the photos they now have to look back on. Just this past weekend I met her baby boy, Harrison, for the first time. I could go on and on about how beautiful he is or how awesome and fun their family was to photograph…but something tells me you guys are far more interested in seeing this cute little guy.
