The Bishop Family

May 6, 2014

Ashley is, hands down, the epitome of maternal strength and intuition. I have been following her family’s story for some time now, and her determination to fight for her daughter is nothing short of admirable.

Sweet baby Annabelle has spent her entire existence fighting for her life. Through diagnosis, treatments, misdiagnosis, life-style changes, she has had to endure more in her few short years than most adults face in their lifetimes. All the while, her parents have been by her side. Asking questions, demanding answers from those less than willing to offer them help, and doing whatever it takes to ensure Belle has what she needs to not only survive, but to beat this thing that has taken over her body.

For just one day, Ashley wanted the girls to run, play, and be normal. She wanted to capture Annabelle having fun with her big sister, Madelyn. She dressed the girls in the cutest dresses, and we met a local park. Matt and I were lucky enough to spend an amazing hour and a half with this incredible family. Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0023 Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0024 Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0027 Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0028 Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0029Ashley, your girls are gorgeous, just like their Mama.Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0031Belle is her Daddy’s girl. Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0032 Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0033 Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0034 Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0035Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0026 Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0036The way she gently reaches for her big sister is one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen. Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0038 Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0039 Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0040 Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Wedding photographer_Hanover Family Portraits_Bishop Family_0041Her “Tubey” is accessorized by the cutest little ducky.
