Colton | San Diego Family Photographer

Things are looking pretty different for Colton since the last time I photographed him.⠀

Last year, Colton and his parents and three siblings met up with my sister and me just a few weeks into Colton’s treatment for a rare form of leukemia. He was absolutely miserable, clinging to his mama and crying (or moaning ) throughout our session . . . but we were determined to get some images because, honestly, no one was really sure if the treatment would work. Times like that make photography a serious – and heartbreaking – endeavor.⠀

Fast-forward to this year’s session and Colton’s smiling face – and smiling eyes. Could there be anything more precious?⠀

Colton’s family has been through so much this year: seemingly endless chemotherapy, multiple extended and unplanned hospital stays, so many spinal taps and injections and oral medications . . . the list goes on. But right now, Colton is in remission, and they are marching through the maintenance phase (still no picnic!!) of his treatment with HOPE.⠀

I know they would love your prayers for Colton and for their family.

Cousins 2017 | San Diego Child Photography

These kids are growing up!! Since the youngest was two, my sister Melanie Monroe and I have been photographing our four children as a gift to our mom on her birthday each June. We have pictures from 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015. Last year was kind of a bust since we were planning for our Hawaii trip, so the far-away beach photo has to suffice.

This year, the kids have hit some major growth spurts, so it was time for a good Cousin Photo 2017! We returned to the same spot we used for the 2011 photo, six years ago.

Here are the last six years’ photos.
