Like any mother, Holly Spring was very happy to get her new baby girl. Her life changed after learning that she had some health problems. She was born with Hirschsprung’s Disease, which is obtained at birth and included missing nerve cells in all, or parts, of her colon muscles.
The loving mother wants to show her daughter that there are no limits to what she can archive as long as she believe in herself.
Holly was a photographer and decided to celebrate her daughter by taking these amazing photos.
Holly Spring described:
“My daughter is my muse and my heart that inspires me to follow my passion and share these unique photos and digital art with you.”
This amazing photography, which won the NZIPP/Epson Iris Portrait Creative Photographer of the Year award in 2014, made an impression about the true love, kindness and prettiness that surround us, made by Holly’s sensitive camera.
The talented photographer didn’t use DSLR techniques in here photos, so it wasn’t easy to made such special art without using lighting control. Her first used camera was Canon Kiss X4, which she started shooting in Manual mode.
The beautiful daughter was like “poet’s source of inspiration” for her mother, which makes her release her imagination freely, as she creates photos full of love and wondrous things.
The fact that her daughter is still fighting for better life didn’t make her lose her confidence and faith. There is something bright in every single shot. Maybe you’re so amazed by how charming she is, and how wonderful the shot is.
What makes it more perfect was the fact that most of those who saw the photos didn’t notice the missed arm.
Holly wrote on her website:
“There are things that really make a photo to me. A moment of heartfelt expression given or recorded, a story, a mystery, beautiful light, beautiful color, and when I’m shooting kids, it’s eyes full of wonder!”
In the photo below, Holly notices she used photo editing so that her daughter’s missing arm is Photoshopped to be on the right side of her body instead of the left, this was for creative purposes.
