Shawn, Melissa, Sergio & McKenzey

I was reminded recently of how unpredictable life is. You play the hand you’re dealt – every day – and challenge yourself and pray to seek out the good. For more than a year, this family has done just that and more. When Melissa called me one day there was a cautious excitement in her voice. Sergio would be home from Iowa City for a while so we decided on meeting her, Shawn and the kids at Davenport‘s VanderVeer Park last week. It was a fun shoot full of personality and love.

Days later, one of Melissa’s Facebook updates: Sergio’s in remission again.. a perfect match bone marrow donor was found… snuggling with McKenzey watching a movie… today was a good day!

Being goofy…

Beautiful smiles…

In love…
