Moment by Moment

I am a member of the Moment by Moment foundation ( where professional photographers are not capturing an illness, they are capturing a life. The photographers that collaborate with Moment by Moment capture a child’s journey, providing lasting memories~giving back to families who have given so much to support the spirit and the fight in their child.  
Meet little Cooper.  He is 2 1/2, the same age as my youngest which really tugged at my heartstrings.  He is a survivor of leukemia and has such a sweet little guy.  I just LOVED his family too.  They were super cool people to work with.  Taking their portraits was a pleasure and a good reminder to be grateful for our children’s good health.
