This month I have decided to write about this amazing woman. Stacey decided to have her portraits taken to expand her life-experiences and embrace new opportunities. In recent years, she spent a lot of her time organising fund-raising events to raise money for The Oliver Fisher Special Care Baby Trust, which supports the neonatal unit at the Medway Maritime Hospital in Gillingham, and who cared for her baby before he sadly passed away. Her family's fundraising has raised almost £7,000 (and invaluable awareness) to support this charity, enabling them to buy new equipment and continue providing support to parents and families.
Stacey is not only a mum, but she is a woman. I think sometime's we mum's forget that we are women and have another persona than that of 'mum'. Sometime's it's nice to remember who we are inside; who we are when we aren't busy being 'mum'. We embraced this idea with Stacey's shoot by using a number of different gorgeous dresses, and allowing Stacey to have fun, be pampered, and play 'dress-up' for the day!
With such a genuine and bubbly personality, it wasn't difficult to get gorgeous portraits. Stacey is such a beautiful woman, both inside and out, and it was great to be able to give her a reason to wear a stunning dress from her wardrobe that hadn't been worn yet!
Stacey and her family have very recently moved to Australia to start a new chapter in their lives. I feel so lucky to have met Stacey and had the opportunity to take her portraits, and I wish her and her family the very best of luck and happiness in the future. xx
