Brave ~ Songs of Life

For the month of October the Songs of Life group that I have been participating in chose the song “Brave” by Sarah Bareilles (listen here). This will likely be my most personal blog post to date since I am writing in honor of my daughter Elayna, who is FINISHED with her cancer treatment. My little […]

You’re girl is incredibly brave. You must be so proud of her for handling herself so well. Lovely photos of a lovely and BRAVE girl.

I will be using her quote with my own daughter.

She is the epitome of all that this song embodies! Such a fierce girl with a sweet soul. She is amazing! I am so happy that the chemo is over!

Beautiful images Lucy. They capture the emotion, struggles, and celebration perfectly.

Your pictures of Elayna simultaneously make me smile and tear up at the same time. She is a brave girl, indeed. I am so, so happy she is done with her treatment.

What a beautiful daughter and a beautiful way to capture her bravery! Thank you for sharing!

Christina Keddie - November 13, 2014 - 7:39 pm

Elayna, your courage is so incredibly inspiring. SO VERY EXCITED that you’re done with your chemo and have no evidence of disease!! It’s so awesome to see how joy-filled you are despite going through such a scary battle. Praying for you as you finish kicking cancer’s butt!!

(Lucy, these images are just gorgeous. So evocative and beautiful! I cry and smile and root my little heart out for you and your family every time I see you post!)

From the beginning, I have been sharing Elayna’s story with my 5 year old son, Abram. He asks about her and loves to see the photos you share – especially the photos of Super Elayna. We both adore her. She is absolutely BRAVE!

Amy - November 13, 2014 - 8:00 pm

Elayna, your bravery is contagious. It makes me want to go out and try something I’ve never had to do before. It makes me want to encourage my girls to live life to the fullest every single day. Your bravery shines through in your eyes. Even in the pictures with your mask on I can see your smile!

Amy Wells - November 13, 2014 - 8:23 pm

Of ALL the people I think of when I hear the word “brave”, Elayna is definitely at the top! Piper asks about her a lot and we talk about how she’s sick but fighting and getting better every day. Thank you so much for sharing a little piece of your life with us!

Tiffany - November 13, 2014 - 9:49 pm

Elayna – You are one very brave little girl. I have been following you through your journey and have been truly inspired by your positive attitude. Never stop smiling! I was so happy to hear that your scans came back NED today!

Erin McC - November 14, 2014 - 6:36 am

Elayna, you are the BRAVEST! The other day my son, who just turned 5, had two doctor’s appointments in one day, and had to get some yucky shots at both. He was scared, and I reminded him of Elayna, the brave, brave girl who we are thinking about so much! And it really helped him be strong like you! We did a happy dance when we saw your picture pop up with that great N.E.D. sign! Yay, Brave Elayna!

Krys and Mike were so much fun to work with. We hadn’t met prior to their engagement shoot, but as soon as we started I could tell we were going to have a good time. They chose to do their session at two locations that had meaning for them in their relationship. First we shot […]

Where do I begin. I have been watching these littles from afar (thanks to social media) and dreaming of getting them in front of my camera. Since they live in Portland, Oregon, I thought it may never happen. Yet, here they are!! I am so thankful that they came to visit Des Moines and that […]
