The Oeverman Family - Grand Rapids, Michigan Family Photographer

My first photography experience with the Oeverman family occurred when Katie contacted me about shooting her sister's wedding on pretty short notice.

They were planning the wedding super fast due to the fact that their mother, Evie, had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and would be starting radiation. They wanted to do the wedding while Evie was still feeling well as they did not know how she would tolerate the radiation.

The things that strikes me, and I imagine most people, upon meeting this family is their JOY and FAITH. Despite the trials they have endured the positive attitude and grateful demeanor has not changed.

And perhaps they are even more joyful as they do have a reason to celebrate! Evie's last PET scan did not show any active cancer! Praise the LORD!





Thank you so much for continuing to allow me to be a part of your family's memories. It is SUCH a blessing <3
