You may remember sweet Siena: I introduced you to her family more than seven months ago when I started documenting her journey as she battled ALL Leukemia. I met with them a few more times in between, and I’m realizing now I may not have shared those yet. This shoot was a little different, though. Her mama, Laura, and I talked about documenting the everyday of her diagnosis. A few days after that discussion, Anni and I met them at her treatment center and hung out for a little while. It’s so strange how something so difficult becomes everyday to a little girl. She knows all the nurses, the routine, and likes to help when she can. Even more than that, her mama is one tough woman. Not only was she sitting with her daughter through chemo… but she was 9 months pregnant at this point! (Baby number three is now six weeks old… yes, I’m definitely behind on blogging). Okay, enough with my babbling. If you skipped all of that, it’s okay, I really think these images say more than I ever could.
PS Miss Siena is now on maintenance! It’s a great step on her way to being done with this!
