Sweet Sienna

This is Sienna. The little, vibrant 10 month old that I watch throughout the week. I've had
the great pleasure of getting to know her and her parents over the last 6 months. What a fun family and I feel so blessed to have become friends with them. About a month ago, Sienna's mom, Darcey, was diagnosed with a Stage IV brain tumor, out of the blue. She and her husband, Cody, have been in the hospital now for almost a month and not able to see Sienna as much as they would like. While I still watch Sienna through the week and try to help out the family as much as I can; I wanted to do something for them with my photography. I wanted Darcey to be able to "see" Sienna everyday from the comfort of her hospital bed. I surprised them with a little photo shoot. My goal was to get her gorgeous eyes and long eye lashes caught in a picture. I know it's only a small thing, but I hope it gives Darcey just a little bit more comfort for the next few weeks of being away from her daughter. I pray for their family daily and ask for God to heal her completely. Please pray for her. I feel like that's the best gift of all. 

If you would like some more information on Darcey, visit her site on Caring Bridge:

Don't forget to sign her guestbook when you stop by! They read these to her everyday and 
it makes her smile. I want her to know that people all over the country are praying and fighting right along side her.
