This session was for my dear friend Sasha. Sasha and I share the same greatest loves: the love of our families and the love of photography. We began to work together and our friendship continued to blossom as we supported each other in travels through motherhood and photography. Sasha was pregnant with her second child and had a beautiful son Xander who was going to be an amazing big brother. Her strength always amazed me. When I found out that Sasha had delivered at just 26 weeks, I knew that if anyone could be strong for her baby girl—it would be Sasha. Spending days and nights in the hospital, caring for her son, running a business, and keeping it all together-- Sasha was finally able to bring her baby girl Chase home on Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day is always special, but this day brought tears to my eyes. This session meant so much to me personally and I am thankful to have met Sasha and to now have met Chase. Chase is already so much like her mother---strong, determined and beautiful.
