Amber contacted me recently about doing her Oma’s Smiling Eyes session. Amber adores her Oma and it’s clear they have a special bond. Oma has battled cancer twice (colon, and then a few years later her liver and lungs) and then just recently they found out the cancer has grown. Oma has said “no more chemo” as her body did not handle it well and it reduced her quality of life. But what she has been able to do is live to enjoy her family, meet her new great grandchild and build memories. For her Smiling Eyes session, we met at their family home they built and have lived in for over 50 years. All but the newborn have lived in this home at some point as Oma opened her arms – and literally her doors – to welcome her family in when needed. It was great to return the favour to her now and offer her this gift. Her husband of 55 years, her daughters and their families all gathered to celebrate Oma.
Celebrating life and love,
