Baby A // Riverside, California Newborn Photographer

This little guy right here. I’ll let his mama tell the story:

“As most of you already know, I recently got diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer in Sept. while only 33 weeks pregnant. The tumor grew rapidly from 2.4cm to 5cm in a matter of 2 weeks. The doctors determined that baby Alonzo had to come out early in order for me to start my chemo treatment. I got induced on Sept. 29th (At 35 weeks) & delivered a healthy baby boy on Oct. 1st, 2018. Ben has been on family leave since I got diagnosed with the breast cancer & will continue be off work while I undergo my treatment to take care of me & Baby Alonzo. On Oct. 17th I was back at the hospital to begin my chemo treatment. We don’t ask for much other than prayers to get us through this hard time however, if you would like to make a donation to help with anything we may need while I undergo treatment we would greatly appreciate it. Also, some of you have asked what formula we’re giving Alonzo; He’s drinking Similac Pro-Advance Ready to Feed.  
Thank you & Love you all 💙 
Brenda, Ben & Alonzo”

I was so happy to give these photos of the family before Mom’s treatment started. She’s currently battling stage 3 breast cancer like a boss. I knew her from my previous life as a 911-dispatcher & they are some of my earliest clients. Prayers for this family are very appreciated & if you feel moved to donate this link is straight to them: https://paypal.me/pools/c/88YbWbk3nz
