It was a very chilly day when we met to get this cute family’s fall family photos done. Poor little April was so cold but brand new baby Owen was warm as could be. Everyone was a great sport and we knocked these photos out as quickly as possible!
I love these photos and the way they’re all snuggled up and are now a family of 5 but there’s more I want to talk about in this post.
I met Aga when she reached out to me to do some photos of just her about a year or so ago. She said she liked to have her photos taken once a year to just document her life. I loved that. Moms so often opt out of being included in photos or are the ones taking the photos. They hardly show up in the images that capture their children’s lives. Anyway, we’ve kept in touch and I actually photographed Owen’s birth back in October. I’ll share some of those beautiful images soon. Aga is so sweet and I’ve enjoyed getting to know her over lunch dates and photo presentations.
Aga and Nate are raw vegans. I totally admire their lifestyle and commitment. I’ve actually stolen a few recipes from her that are so good. Anyway, Aga was diagnosed with a disease that causes cancer to grow in her body. After Owen was born they discovered that a tumor in her brain had grown during pregnancy and it was time to do something about it. Aga and Nate gathered all the information they could and decided to go a more natural route of healing. I won’t even try to explain it all but you can listen to their thoughts at Aga’s YouTube Channel. Most of it is in Polish but there are some English videos as well as the birth video she put together using my photos and video clips.
Why am I sharing Aga’s story? Because she is a beautiful soul and deserves to be healed and with her family. She went away to heal for about 5 or 6 weeks and I can’t wait to hear all about her experience and the results. You all know that I’m a believer and I believe in miracles and medicine and love natural ways of healing. So, I’m asking that all of you praying people out there would say a prayer for this momma that when she goes for testing the doctors would find no more tumor!
