Sara is one of my very dear friends and these portraits are a gift to her in helping her celebrate a new take on life. You see, she’s spent the last several years in a ton of pain. She has adult hip dysplasia and after three major, in-bed-for-weeks surgeries she’s finally starting to feel like a bit more of a normal person again. She hasn’t been capable of her previous level of activity in quite some time and as you might expect, felt quite sluggish in her life of non-activity. And given her recent changes, there’s never been a better time for modern glamour photos in Portland while visiting us last month!
These days, she’s still in a bit of nerve pain. And she probably always will be. But she can take her dog on mile long walks around the hills of San Francisco and enjoy it. And she can go out dancing and enjoying the single life again, something she hasn’t done in quite some time. And for the first time in several years, it’s not bone pain. It’s a whole new world for her out there and I couldn’t be more excited to see what she does next.
