This was a special shoot for me. I really wanted to take pictures of my mom’s wedding dress. I never had the opportunity to wear it because my mom was a lot shorter than me and skinnier for that matter. I have always thought about this dress and how beautiful she looked on her wedding day and how happy she was. And from there I just start to think about my mom and what an amazing woman she is and that her strength continues to astonish me. Most of you may not know but my mom has Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. She has battling this disease since 1998 when she was 38 years old. Since her diagnosis, she has lost all control over her bodily functions, she is paralyzed from the neck down and cognitive skills and speech have deteriorated. So I really just wanted to honour her in a way and photograph her dress. I am so glad that she gave me permission to use it and when I opened the box it was in excellent condition. Here are a few pictures of this dress and my awesome model Amanda posing in it.
