Millie #2

Photographer's Name: 
Louise Whelan

This portrait of my niece Millie captures her melancholic mood, a mood which can be attributed to her grieving process. Millie the youngest of four children lost her father to a sudden heart attack 2 years ago. Millie can be happy with smiles one minute, then remembering her loss calls out "I want my dad!" Death is an inescapable part of life.
