I have not posted an update in a VERY long time and I am quite behind on posting past family portrait sessions and weddings. Hopefully in the near future I can get all caught up and share some of those beautiful events!
Unfortunately, I have not been accepting any new portait sessions or weddings at this time. I have been dealing with some health issues. I miss photography terribly! However, I want to focus on healing and being with my family at this time. I hope to be back to myself sometime next year and photographing portrait sessions and weddings in 2013!
For now I wanted to post an update on what’s been going on with me and my family over the last 10 months. It has been a roller coaster filled with amazing joy. It has also been one of the hardest times my family and I have ever dealt with. After the birth of our daughter, Elise, I was diagnosed with stage 2 colon cancer. I had surgery at the end of October (2011) and I am currently doing chemo treatments. Elise has brought us such tremendous happiness and she has been our light through all of this. After completion of chemotherapy, I will have another reconstructive surgery. I hope to be finished with my treatments and on my way to healing by the end of this year. My friends and family have been an amazing support system for me and my husband, Phillip. We are so grateful for all of the thoughts and prayers that continuously come our way.
Lately I have been writing on a separate blog to discuss my surgeries, treatments, and our emotional struggles along the way over these past several months. If you are interested in reading about our journey, you are welcome to visit my blog: My UC Story / The Klapp Family. I will keep everyone updated on my progress on that blogsite.
Thank you again for all of your thoughts and prayers. Hopefully I will be seeing some of you through my camera lens next year!
