Julie




There are times when I can hardly believe that I'm in any way worthy of hanging out with the people I photograph-- and this case exemplifies that. Born 3 months premature, Julie is now 14 months old, and can't see, has trouble breathing, and doesn't eat solid food. She needs constant-- and I mean constant-- care. The miraculous thing-- which is, of course, the most normal thing in the world-- is the patience and caring and love from her Mom. Is that a huge cliche? Well, so be it. There are wonderful, heartbreaking things in the world, and I don't care if that's another cliche.

that's not a cliche', Amanda. there lots of wonderful things out there, and i'm glad you are a person who doesn't take them for granted. Keep it that way, please.
NICE WORK!

Ignoring happenings because they are "cliche" would be a terrible mistake for a photographer, unless it's a ribbon cutting.
