Sneak Peak-The Stockings

Last weekend was a busy one for me.  I did FIVE photoshoots.  It was awesome and I loved every minute of it.  Now I am slaving away at my computer trying to edit all of these pictures (probably close to 1000 pictures).  I have now finished 3 of the 5!

How to I describe the Stockings?  Awesome, inspiring, tough, grounded, content, and loveable.  We first met Jason and Robin (and Christopher) at church.  We both started attending the same church around the same time.  Robin stuck out because she carried oxygen with her everywhere and we all wondered what was going on with the lady.  Over the next few years, they captured our hearts.  Robin had Cystic Fibrosis and came to Colorado to get on the waiting list for a double lung transplant.  We all became friends.

A lot has happened since then, and it has been a pleasure living life alongside this family.  Two years ago, Robin lost her battle and is now dancing with Jesus.  We grieved with Jason and Christopher over Robin and have walked a long road with them.  They are amazing.  I have never seen such a happy and content child as Christopher.  Anytime you ask him how he is doing, the response is always "great".  He is quick to smile and is a good boy.  Jason is a great dad and has handled being a widower with grace, spunk and a sense of humor.

I was so happy to go with them to Lair of the Bear Park and snap a few photos of these great guys.  Here is a sneak peak.  (check out my facebook page at LiLo Photography for more pictures)

This is one of those friendships that touches the soul.
