This picture makes me happy and teary at the same time. It’s in the list of top favorite family pictures that I’ve ever taken. It’s not only the look on each person’s face, but also what is behind the looks of love on each face. The last time I photographed the Galens it was in January and little Sam was in the middle of many months of chemotherapy for a brain tumor. The family had wanted to do a family picture documenting Sam’s cute bald head. (You can click HERE to see my blog post about that session.)
Sam completed his final chemo treatment in May and the MRIs they’ve done since then have not shown any tumor re-growth. YEA!!!!! Sam is so much stronger (physically) than the last time I saw him and although his bald head WAS very cute, I do loooove his red hair.
