I met Vivian when I was 14 or so and she quickly became my mentor in the arts as well as in my life. She's the one who pushed me to pursue higher education at The School of the Art institute of Chicago, she connected me with the non for profit organization that I've worked for throughout college (and absolutely adore), and she's encouraged and supported me through it all. It was such an honor to photograph Vivian in this exciting moment of her life as she transitions into motherhood. I can't thank her enough for all that she's done for me, but I hope that this pictures are at least a step in that direction. ;) Congrats, Vivian!
