Like many young and single mothers, Emily struggled following the birth of her daughter.
Karlee is now three and a beautiful and happy child, and I anticipate photographing her soon. But the stress of caring for Karlee took a toll on Emily. Having a place of her own, paying bills, working 40+ hour weeks and soon the stress was taking its toll. Throw in the loss of a dearly loved brother and a few other things and soon Em weighed less than 100 pounds.
98 pounds, to be exact.
Emily came to me for photographs because she’s happy where she is now. In a good place in her life, remembering the special moments.
She is perhaps, just starting to realize that she has a long way on the road in life, but will always be, a beautiful Work of Art.
Oh and by the way, “Infamous” is a tattoo that graces her lower torso.
