Many of you already know that my dear friend Jamie is battling leukemia. Please continue to pray for her and her family. On Saturday, she was told that the cancer had returned to her body at 20%. On Sunday, the number had jumped to 48%!! When my sister and I saw her on Tuesday, it was at 60 something %. On Wednesday, it had stabilized.
Her family came down for this time and my cousin (Thanks Noly!) and I were able to photograph her yesterday. She got special permission to go downstairs to the lobby in a wheelchair. While she can’t go outside, she was at least able to go by the windows and see outside.
My cousin and I had the honor of spending time with her and her amazing family on Wednesday. WOW! They are some of the kindest, most genuine people you will ever meet.
Jamie’s skin color is not the same. The whites of her eyes are not the same. Her hair is not the same. Her energy level is not the same. But she is still beautiful in every way. Her gorgeous smile that lights up the room …. her sweet, fun temperament… her passion for life….her faith in God. Yes, she’s still the same, amazing Jamie.
Jamie and her immediate family:
Everyone being silly! Love how fun they are! What a fabulous group. 🙂
Her parents are amazing!
Her brothers: Grey, “G.Q.”, and “Blinky”. Gotta love photographer given nicknames. 🙂
How cute is this couple?! 🙂

What a beautiful photo session. You can see Jesus radiating from her smile. 🙂
Michelle I am so glad that you asked me to come with you! Jamie and her family are absolutely amazing and the love between them is just so beautiful. It was such a pleasure being around them and getting to know them. We had some really good laughs, and I had a lot of fun spending time with all of them. It was obvious that God is in the center of their lives and that they look to him not only through the good times, but the tough times as well. This is what being a Christian is all about. They are just wonderful!
Michelle, excellent work as always! What an incredible GIFT you have given this family. Our prayers continue!!
I agree Amanda. Her smile is just amazing.
Thanks for coming Noelia. I thought it would be a long shot for you to come so last minute, so I was thrilled. 🙂 You were amazing!
Thanks April. I couldn’t have edited 436 photos in the hospital in less than 1 hour and 45 minutes without my cousin. LOL.
