seems like forever ago.

We got super lucky with an exceptionally pleasant fall this year, which meant lots of beach sessions!   Although it really was just a few months ago, it sure does seem like forever ago since I have stepped foot on a beach.  This session was a pure delight, and I know I have shared a few sneak peeks over on Facebook, but I am looking forward to sharing a whole lot more with you now!

three.

My sweetest boy turns three today. He lights up my life brighter than the sun in the sky. My absolute favorite moments with him are when he snuggles into me and says, “You’we my best fwiend in all of da world. My best.” That sweetness usually immediately proceeds something being thrown at my head. But, such is life with a THREE year old.
Happy third birthday Asher. Love you to bits. I am certain you make the world a better place.

sending all the love.

Diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor at age 3, Rosie has undergone 11 brain surgeries, spent countless nights in the hospital and received almost 1,400 doses of chemotherapy.

With the support and care of her mother JoAnne and older sister Bella, this Rockstar refuses to back down. Cancer hasn’t stopped Rosie, her sister and mom from helping raise over $500,000 and awareness for charities leading to increased research in pediatric cancers, and providing tons of toys to children and waiting rooms in hospitals.

Throughout treatment, these selfless girls continue to help others even after losing their home, an apartment eviction, bankruptcy and trying to find jobs with the flexibility to accommodate hospital visits. At present, Joanne and the girls live in subsidized housing. They’ve just lost their car and are in financial crisis.

And through it all, they have managed to keep their smiles. I am honored to have photographed them twice now, and both times, I am so sure that I get more from their session than I could ever give back to them.

But… maybe together we can make even a small difference in their lives. If Rosie’s story touches you too, feel free to click on this link: https://www.dreamfund.com/Dream/Overview/4125/Help-Rosie-and-the-Colucci-Family

Every little bit counts!
