Strength & Love | Washington DC Baby Photographer

Raina recently turned one and today we were blessed with a beautiful, warm day to capture her and her family.

Miss Raina is spunky, beautiful, and fun. She has a smile so infectious that you can’t help but smile right along with her.

She’s feisty, just as any redhead should be.

She is surrounded by lots and lots of friends and family that love her.

She is also battling an agressive form of brain cancer called AT/RT.

Raina is a strong little girl and I know she will fight this, she has thousands cheering for her in her corner.

Please think of and pray for Raina and her beautiful family as they embark on a journey that no parent should have to take.

Her parents keep two blogs, one with fun and adorable photos of Miss Raina here, and another about her medical treatment here. If anyone has been through this or knows someone who has, I’m sure they would love to hear from you.

Raina, I’m so honored to have met you and your loving family today, you are an awesome little girl!
