Sometimes people come into your life, and you instantly know that you will never forget them.
Saturday i photographed a delightful young lady named Karsha, and her wonderful mother Gail. Karsha was chosen to be one of the models for the 2009 calendar to benefit the Down Syndrome Association of Northern Virginia

The foundation holds a very special place in my heart. One of my dearest friends named Michelle lost her beautiful daughter Carina Hope to complications from Down Syndrome. Carina would be 3 years and 4 months old today. She is loved and missed by all of us, though i am greatly comforted knowing there is a special angel looking after me.

Karsha is the first of the four models i will be photographing during the month of May. When the calendar becomes available, i will post the information on how you can purchase them. All proceeds benefit the DSANV. Click the link to see how else you can help!
Thanks Karsha and Gail for letting me be part of your life *kisses and hugs*...Gail...please tell Karsha "miss you" for me!!!
