This little firecracker is Ava, who is just about the sweetest little girl I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. If you have a session with me, you'll know that I highly encourage snacking for the kids- being a model is hard work! Ava gave the biggest smiles when she was promised some of her favorite gummy candies. There's nothing like those smiles that are just begging for the snacks. We spent time at Family House celebrating how brave and happy she is.
Ava was first diagnosed with severe combined immunodeficiency when she was just 6 months old in May 2014. Ava is now 3 years old. She is at Lucille Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford University undergoing a life saving stem cell transplant.
Ava gives the biggest hugs, has the most contagious laugh and is my newest little buddy. I had such a fabulous time photographing her in the best spring outfit I've seen all year. She is truly such a beautiful girl inside and out. I can't wait to see her again soon.
Ava is a real life Snapchat filter- and my favorite one at that!
