Stephanie’s Union Missouri senior pictures were some of the most meaningful senior portraits I have ever had the honor of creating. I first met Stephanie almost 5 years ago when I took her sister’s senior portraits. We met again at her family portrait session where we had lots of laughs (if you know this family you know they just carry joy in their pockets!).  This whole family is amazing. They are the best kind of people imaginable but there was something that stood out about Stephanie even then. She had a joyful spirit and an obviously loving heart.


Naturally, I kept up with Stephanie and her family on social media mostly she would post about softball and school activities. About two years ago she had what she thought was a sports related injury, but it turned into much more. Doctors discovered that this beautiful vibrant girl with the world at her feet had a rare type of bone cancer. The news devastated an entire community.  Her family took the news in stride (I have no doubt there was a lot of very real moments they didn’t share publically) they trusted the Lord, became even closer, and still shared Stephanie’s journey candidly. I will never forget the post they made after Steph started to lose her hair, it touched me so deeply. There are no words to describe the bravery in this seniors heart! So it didn’t at all surprise me when Steph shared that she wanted to capture this time in her life, as it is, in her senior pictures.


Stephanie, I have said it to you several times, cancer is not fair. I hate that it took away some of the moments in your young adult life, but I have such confidence that God is going to use this battle that you have so bravely fought and endured for something unfathomably amazing. I can’t wait to see what that is! Much love sweet Steph! You are a joyful and fierce warrior!
