Back in October, I met and photographed this family, new to the area from Ohio. They were so incredibly sweet and their daughters were precious! The little girls were so carefree, happy, and just so much fun as they played on the beach at Fort Fisher.
Last week, I got an email from Becca letting me know that her three year old, Jorja, was very recently diagnosed with leukemia. As I read her email, I was rocking my seven month old daughter to sleep. My heart broke for this family and I was reminded that this could happen to any of us. A mother's worst nightmare. Jorja has already began treatments and will spend much of the near future traveling to and from the hospital.
Next month, I'll be shooting Valentine's Day mini sessions for kids and the initial session fees will be donated to this brave family. Please keep little Jorja in your thoughts and prayers this holiday season and beyond.
