sequoia | nine-months-old

This sweet little bundle of deliciousness just hit the nine-month-mark. Isn’t she adorable? When she can talk, I’m going to start asking Suki for fashion advice.

This shoot was actually really special for a number of reasons. Suki is my niece, so I love getting the chance to take her picture. But she also just recently had major surgery. When Sequoia was just a few months old, Matt and Ashley found out that she had Craniosynostosis, and shortly after this shoot, Suki went in for skull surgery. (Skull surgery!) I can’t even begin to imagine what that was like for Matt and Ashley… Thankfully, everything went really well. (Sequoia’s surgeon was actually Dr. Ben Carson. Pretty amazing, right?)

It was incredible to watch the way that Ashley and Matt cared for Sequoia during the whole ordeal. And now, talking about her surgery is a really beautiful part of her story. You can see why I loved capturing her last week…
my favorite from the session.
Can you believe those eyes?
The countdown to your first birthday begins!!
