… there comes new hope.  Kai’s grandmother was very sick and tried to hold on to life long enough to meet her un-born great-grandchild; sadly she didn’t make it.  Kai and I teared up during her shoot as she told me how important her grandmother has been to her life, and why she brought her grandmother’s rosary beads to hold during her maternity session.  Kai’s beautiful sadness and introspection during the shoot affected us both, and left me with a lot to think about the rest of the day.
