i know my heart will never be the same. i was honored to be asked to photograph this beautiful child. this precious little child who is struggling so much. fighting to live her life. a life she deserves to live. her parents are incredible. two of the nicest people i have ever had the pleasure to know. my heart aches for what they face in their world, for what their beautiful daughter faces in hers.
when i walked into their home i felt so welcomed. love and joy filled the air, so cosy. and when i turned the corner and saw this face - this beautiful little face - my heart skipped a beat, truly. there she was in her beautiful pink tutu and her cupcake shirt. sitting on the couch next to her daddy looking at her photo album filled with photos of her favorite animal - cats. i was instantly reminded of my own little girl who loves cats too and wears tutus and plays with her baby dolls and how alike these two little girls are. and why. why does one have to struggle? where is the fairness in that? i met this little darling when she was just a babe with my own babe at the new mother's group. such a special time that was. before the world was changed. she is so lovely. so talkative and bright and full of wonder and light. showing me all her treasures. i know i will never be the same again, because she is the most precious treasure of all.
