I met Nevena in a Mom's group on facebook. She posted asking for help with her 2 year old. She has Stage 4 Breast Cancer and is currently going through Chemo and is tired after treatments.
My Mother is a breast cancer survivor, my Grandmother passed from breast cancer and I have an Aunt living with breast cancer. I also have a 1, 3 and 5 year old, I know how exhausting my kiddos can be. Her post spoke to me and I reached out to her and offered to take portraits of her daughter Natalie and her.
In addition to photos, I enlisted my talented friend Kate Johnson to come do Nevena's makeup. It was such a fun morning getting to know Nevena and her daughter as well as capturing these precious moments of this Mother and daughter.
The light was perfection, the views of the lake from her home calming and I adore that Nevena asked if she could have the photos taken without a wig (her head is perfect for a shaved head). I took some candid photos of her and Natalie, of Kate working her magic and was tickled pink when Nevena came out wearing pink with a matching outfit for her little girl.
Kate did a gorgeous job as always and I am obsessed with these photos and had to share some.
