Upland Children and Portrait Photographer/ Bailey is Thirteen!

What a joy to take these special portraits of Bailey. I have been photographing her since she was 6 months old. I still can't believe she is thirteen. Where does the time go?

Bailey is special to so many of us due to her incredible journey she has had since being diagnosed with A.L.L (acute lymphoblastic leukemia) at the young age of 2 1/2. I remember being at her house when her Mom Jody was asking me if I thought it was normal that Bailey was bruising really easily and that her lips were white. It was only a couple days later that we discovered that Bailey had Cancer. It was such a shock to all who loved this family and we all began the long stretch of 26 months of watching Bailey go through her Chemo treatments. Praise God she has been Cancer free ever since.

Here are some older photos of Bailey. This one was from our first photo session when she was 6 months old.

Next, a photo from her second session the next year.

And this was when we found out she had Cancer. Jody wanted me to take a quick photo of her before she lost her hair. You can see her brusies on her arms. Poor girl.

This is Bailey now. A bright, healthy 13 year old girl. We are so happy for you Bailey. God has blessed you with health and a vibrant future ahead of you. It has been a pleasure watching you grow. I am looking forward to seeing where your life takes you and photographing you along the way.
