"Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory." ~ Unknown
Two years ago today, my sister tragically lost her dear baby girl to SIDS. Ivy was only 2 and a half months old. She was such a gorgeous little girl and brought so much joy to my sister. This is a video, composed of snapshots that I made and was played at the funeral. I was at the very beginning of my journey into newborn and child photography. I regret that I never had the chance to do a "photo shoot" with my dear niece. I was in Michigan for a few weeks when she was born. Things were so busy when I was in town, and we just kept saying "...next time...". When I had to go back to my home in Las Vegas, I told my sister that when I returned at the end of the summer I wanted to do a session with her, and we planned to do so. I'm not sure if my sister has been able to watch this video yet (it's been too difficult), but when she does I hope she can smile, remembering the happy times of this beautiful life.
