Her Eyes

::click on photo to enlarge::

I totally stole this idea from a client of mine who took the disc she purchased from the photo shoot I did of her family and she turned it into a photo book. The client has two small daughters with the older one going through leukemia, losing her hair, all the treatments, etc. The little girl is now fully healed and will be celebrating the end of her treatments with a huge, and I do mean HUGE, party in downtown Dallas at the end of July.

They asked me to do the photos.


I even had to ask a fellow photographer to help me out in order to capture everything going on that night.

Where was I? Oh--my client used the lyrics to Martina McBride's "In My Daughter's Eyes" throughout the photo book. Oh my. You could not help but get all choked up with chill bumps on your skin if you tried! So precious.

When I was messing around with my camera and our $1 hats from Tar*get I snapped this one of PandaGirl. I know it doesn't look like her normal cheerful-eyed self, but with the color editing I did on it along with those words...it just brings me chills and makes me so very grateful for my daughter.

The Lord has stretched me greatly through her little life and I am the better for it.



  1. Congratulations on getting a photoshoot gig for the upcoming celebration party. That's so cool. I never saw those $1 hats at Target. I would have snatched those up in a heartbeat for Emma.


  2. There is something about parenting that gives such insight into the Father's heart, doesn't it?

    Have I said lately that I'm really proud of you? I am. I'm really proud of you and love you tons to boot! I'm missing PP and PG these days, too. Need a good dose of his (and her) humor!
