My buddy, Yvonne and I collaborated a gallery opening to honor our beloved friend, Alyssa. Alyssa and her unborn daughter, Sutton were taken to early on a cold December morning in 2014. I struggled thru grief and heartache and inside that sadness, Mother & Daughter was created. With encouragement from each other and our loved ones, Yvonne and I did it!
Thank you WHCC & Perfect Posters for your generous sponsorship. Thank you Q.arma Building for your encouragement and the experience. Thank you Wild Acorn for seeing a vision and contributing your woodworking talents. Thank you to everyone that participated in the creation of Mother & Daughter, without you my story would have never been told. And thank you to all that attended, we are so humbled by the kindness and feedback from you all!
The pride I feel about these images is overwhelming. This girl is so passionate and dedicated at such a young age that I can’t help but be head over heels inspired by her. She gets in front of my camera with such confidence and grace, her beauty inside and out is something I love to photograph.
