It was such a humbling experience for me to photograph Marijke and Jacques with their 2 beautiful daughters Aimee and Aerin. When they arrived for the shoot, I could feel the strong bond between them, not knowing their family history. Only half way through the shoot Jacques mentioned that their little girl Aimee was diagnosed with Bi lateral retinoblastoma only a few weeks after her birth. Bi lateral retinoblastoma is a childhood cancer, and little Aimee will outgrow it. Dad, Jacques was also diagnosed with retinoblastoma at an early age. Aimee will go for treatment on the 6th December, so please send your special prayers their way.
Matthew 18:20 ~ “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them”
