Entry Description

I lost my mom in 2008 from lung cancer and I was inspired to create a shoot with all my feelings and emotions from losing her. I did a series of shoots called Red Dream and this one was dedicated to her. The letter dress resembles all the letters I wish I could write her and each one has an individual message on it. "Verloren ohne dich" which means "Lost without you" indicates the missing piece I have in my heart, which is my mother. The last thing she said before she passed was "Live your Dreams." Today, I am doing just that. "The strength in your heart will guide you." -Katie Lucas
