I Am More Than Skin Deep

I was born and raised in Montgomery, Alabama. My name is Vanlessia Gaston. I am a twenty-five year old single mom of two beautiful kids that I adore. I have been battling severe plaque psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis since, I was six years old. Imagine waking up everyday knowing that it is another day to fight. Some see it as a cry for help, but I see it as a cry for comfort. Through the pain I still fight and push for a better living. For years I locked myself away from the world.

Thanks guys so much.. for allowing to do your photos. Be sure to see more photos from this session on my facebook page soon...

Brittany Family and Beya Newborn Session

 My goodness Beya is too cute. Who wouldn't get baby fever after doing photos of her and her family.  She slept almost the whole session, which as you can see, the photo session came out great.  I have known Brittany a few years, and seeing the addition to the family made me kind of tickeled, because I was so use to her and the boys. ( Mason and Daniel) She had so much hair on her head. Can't you tell how much he adores his little sister. Thanks so much... for allowing me to capture your precious memories
