Spencers Make a Wish

This was another amazing experience for me. I was able to go with Spencers family to the Make a Wish foundation in Murray Utah and document Spencer declaring his wish. Now I haven't known this family long, but I dearly love them already. Spencer has the sweetest, kindest spirit about him. It was hard to choke back the tears over and over.

The ceiling of the building. It was AMAZING.
Happy Spencer

Writing down his wish...so EXCITING!

He puts his wish in this special place
then takes it to a special room that he has the key to
The family tells their wishes for Spencer. I could hardly not cry. So I just did.
He puts his wish in this
then attaches it to this...and his wish is officially declared to the Wishing Wizard!
After wards, they go into a room to celebrate, and eat ice cream and cookies. How can you resist this 7 year old face?


I love this picture of him! So much, I do.
I love you guys!!! THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for the opportunity to share such a precious experience with you. I will never forget it.

You hear about Make-a-Wish but to see something like that and really think about what it means for the family, about what their lives are like and what's ahead, and about the blessing it is that something like that exists...it's all so overwhelming. What a blessing for you and for them that you can document it! These pictures will be beyond priceless for them...

Oh wow! These pictures are unbelievable- this truly brings meaning to the "a picture tells a thousand words" theory. The emotion conveyed in the photos is so touching. What a great post-thank you so much for sharing!

Beautiful! What a happy day and a fantastically magical place! I love Spencer in his Jazz hat. And I absolutely LOVE that the baby brother has his head shaved to show his support as well. So touching. What an incredible family!
