Beautiful Girl.

Yesterday I had the privilege of photographing 3 year old Zoe. She and her mum Kiri are absolute troopers.

I must admit, I was quite nervous meeting wee Zoe as I thought I might shed a tear for what this wee girl has been through but when I met her I was surprised by a strange sense of being utterly proud of her for what she has endured. It's not often a stranger can instil that feeling in someone.

Each bead on the necklace she holds up represents a procedure she has been through.. over 250 of them from the haircut when her hair started to fall out to the 31 general anaesthetics she has had.

I look forward to photographing you in the summer again Zoe, you are a true super star.
