Santa Barbara Portrait Photographer - Eliana Turns 2!

Friday, May 6, 2011

Most of you probably remember when I have previously posted about sweet little Ellie and her fight with brain cancer. Well, believe it or not, she is TWO today!!! I didn't even know until recently that her Mother Samantha was told that she probably wouldn't even make it through the helicopter ride down to LA when they realized she had a brain tumor. That was 1 year and 8 months ago!!!

As soon as Eliana could talk, she has been asking to ride a horse. Well, I wanted to help make this wish come true, so I contacted one of my clients that has a couple horses on her property. She was more than happy to help us out!

I was sure Ellie would get a little scared as soon as she got in front of the large horse, but she just hopped up on the saddle like it was nothing. She instantly knew what to do and held on tight and smiled from ear to ear! I couldn't believe it!

It seriously took my breath away to see this sweet little child so brave and confident atop this giant horse. It was a true testament to her character!

I am so blessed to have little Ellie and her Mama Samantha in my life and so happy to call them friends!
