    Excellent portrait. So much emotion.

  • thank you eva. luckily my daughter is used to me snapping photos wherever and whenever, so at this particular, very emotional moment, she was oblivious to my presence. Thank you for your view and comment! : )

    This is tough to look at without staring into her tears. Its beautifully sad.

  • yes. . . it’s been tough watching her suffer the last two years- you always want to “fix it” for your child, and this time, I couldn’t. Thank you for stopping and commenting. : )

    I’m SO sorry to hear of your daughter’s illness. I send much peace..

  • well, she wasn’t sick, she lost her boyfriend of over a year in a tragic DUI hit and run, and the guy left him the ditch all night long, and he did pass away- that was the battle she was dealing with. Thank you for your kind words and sweetness! : )

    This is why they say a picture is worth a thousand words. In this case, knowing the back story, maybe several thousand.

  • yes, it was tragic alright. She didn’t even know I was there, my family is used to me sneaking around everywhere with the camera

    The sign of a true photographer to be able to step outside the moment and get the shot. Well done Stephanie, such a shame that it was from the result of such a stupid and callous act though.

  • Thank you for that awesome compliment BB… It truly means a lot : )
