When this sweet girl’s mother reached out to me about doing a sunflower mini session I was immediately intrigued by the Faith she had in her daughter’s spirit and character. I knew I had to at least meet this girl, if not capture her in photos. I was told of her story: her upbringing, how broken it was and how her life now has blossomed into a beautiful tale of trust, love and open possibilities! She was raised in a family that caused her pain in a way no child should ever experience but it brought her to her adopted family, who shows her so much love and support. My time with her was inspiring in more ways than one. What an experience to shoot with her in a place that was formed in memory of a lost child, and to be there with her in her new life with her new family! Her spirit was contagious to say the absolute least. I left that night with a sad heart for all that we fear in this world, especially for our children, but also for hope and faith in the good that exists. She was proof of that. I’m looking forward to watching her grow into who I know will be an inspiration to everyone she meets and a warm spot on this planet.
