Gardenia is someone I started noticing the more I would come around Family House. She has a beautiful smile and a great spirit. I happened to be in the Family House lobby when I found out the family I was about to photograph had to go to the hospital last minute. Gardenia and her family walked by at the same moment and the staff at Family House told her she had to get her photo taken, especially since she was wearing a stunning dress and her family was all together. I was so honored to take these photos and to be a small part of their story.
