Something more

I want to shoot

Photos and more to follow.


  1. so so sad...cannot imagine....im with you on needing to do more...

  2. I remember those moments of LOVE that I felt that day in the delivery room with Claire and I'm so happy that someone like you was there to help me remember those few precious moments I was able to spend with her. Thank you for people like you! I love you Sharon!

  3. I love you Linda. I thought of you and Claire the entire session. It will be nice to have something that reminds me of that love we felt on a continual basis. Thank you for being amazing.

  4. Oh my heart breaks about this. I have a friend who does these photo shoots in DC and her heart breaks every time. What a special thing for you to provide.
