We all have very busy lives and sometimes I am sure just like me you get wrapped up in everyday stuff?  I meet a lot of people in my job and every so often you meet someone who brings everything back into perspective for you. Jackie, is one of those people. She greeted me at the door like I was an old friend and  immediately started telling me about her elderly dogs. ( I too am a dog lover) She then went on to tell me about her family and her dear friend who is also going through cancer treatment.  She asked me about how I got started with Smiling Eyes, my family and my dog.  She is going through a lot with treatment, pain and feeling exhausted.  However, she doesn’t seem to let that effect who she really is and her personality. Amazing! We had lots of fun shooting and chatting. I included some of the fun moments I captured. Instead of ringing the bell when treatment was finished she clicked her heals together!

Thank You Jackie for sharing your story with me and for letting me know how important Smiling Eyes is to the families.

If you or someone you know is going through or gone through cancer treatment and would enjoy a photography session contact me or Smiling Eyes. Our goal is to provide you with an hour out of your journey, to offer you fun and laughter with your loved ones, while creating memories that can be cherished.

We want to help make your journey a little less difficult, and make memories of life and love more vivid.

The Smiling Eyes Team.
