Meet Rachel, the sweetest little 8 month-old whom I had the honor of photographing. Her daddy recently died from a heart attack at age 36 while running out on the trails. As some of you know, I lost my dad to an accident when he was 44, leaving behind 4 children. I knew from experience with grief that Rachel’s mom is just trying to get through her day without crying while adjusting to being a single mom of her two girls. I also knew that her daughter was at a perfect age for photos and I didn’t want it to pass without her mom having photos of it. When I heard her story I felt an instant empathy for her so I offered to do a complimentary photo session. I hope these images of her baby girl will bring her joy.
