A special gift for Indie

Indie is a beautiful little girl just celebrating her 5th birthday. Sadly Indie was diagnosed with Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy which is a degenerative disorder that affects the brain and nervous system. Life expectancy is very short. As a special gift to her and her family I was asked to help create some magical images that this lovely family could treasure.

I wanted to give them some special images, that would last forever, but also I wanted to make the experience a special morning of feeling cared for and loved, and would celebrate their love as a family. What better way than to lie down in a bed of roses, on a soft fur! 

Indie was so beautiful and peaceful as she lay there and I surrounded her with red velvety roses and petals, and she quietly watched. 

Her mother is experiencing the most hardest of challenges, facing all that she is. She is looking after Indie on her own, not an easy task as Indie is quite paralyzed,  and looking after her little 2 year old aswell. I was deeply affected by her peace and strength.
