Bald and Beautiful

I've been back home in Pennsylvania for a month now and every day I've been meaning to take some portraits of my mom, since she is the reason I am here. Finally I squeezed in a moment just as the sun was setting tonight before I leave tomorrow to get some snapshots of my mom. I think her baldness brings out her eyes :)


Doesn't she look beautiful?


In this one you can see her scar from the biopsy, which is a good 4 inches long and was a bit shocking the first time I saw it.


I truly appreciate the patience of those of you who are my clients during the past months while I deal with this personal situation. It has been an emotional month to say the least, but I am so glad to have a job that allows me the flexibility to travel when I need to. Tomorrow I am flying to California for a few days before heading back to Las Vegas on the 21st. I'll be in Vegas for another month before flying back here to PA for two more awesome weddings, and some more time with my mom. I have two weddings from last weekend still to post, so check back soon for those. Thanks for reading :)
