Beautiful love {Harkness Park family photographer}

I’ve known Cuong for a  long time and this session was very special to me.  We met out at Harkness Park to capture some images of Cuong and his younger daughter Meg.

Meg is a true fighter.  In the fall of 2008, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor.  The tumor was removed and they followed up with chemo and radiation therapy.  Her treatment took almost a year to complete with many ups and downs along the way.  This family spent most of that year living at the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.  Meg fought thru it all – mutism, feeding tubes, sepsis and shunt placement.  And after the treatment was done, the long recovery road was ahead – after basically being bed-ridden for a year, she had to relearn to walk and had to use braces.  She is now two years into her recovery phase and is cancer-free.

It was heartbreaking to watch her story unfold and this session was so incredibly moving for me…heartwarming.  Cuong is such a special dad and their relationship is beautiful.  I could share so many moments with you – it was so difficult to choose.  And I suspect that the very last image may be Cuong’s favorite of them all. It truly shows Meg’s spunk and sass.
