I had the honor of photographing this wonderful family recently.
Erik and Jerusha have five adorable kiddos and are dear friends of ours.
Erik's mom and dad were there too.
Sam, Erik's mom, has brain cancer and recently things have taken a turn for the worst.
While God has had incredible mercy in extending her life far beyond what the doctors had hoped,
her family is treasuring every minute they have with her.
It was bittersweet capturing these precious moments of the kids with their "Grammer".
She loves them to pieces and it was clear that they feel the same way.
This is one of those times when I am so thankful for the gift of photography
to record memories like this.
Thanks to Erik and Jim for being champion shade makers on a bright sunny morning.
Sheffer family, we love you and are praying for you!!
