On Sunday morning just after 9am I got the call I have been dreading about my wonderful, beautiful friend Sasha Fulop. She had passed away after a courageous fight with cancer. Even though I lost track of the times I cried while she was hospitalized & knew it would come to pass at some point, tears once again overcame me as I tried to sort through all the emotions I was feeling. Even though you think you have prepared yourself for the inevitable the whole universe comes crashing down on you & your heart rips to pieces. Sasha, who had become one of my my best friends since I shot her wedding was gone & I just couldn’t process it. She was 33 & absolutely loved life. I never heard her complain about her misfortune & she fought the fight like a tenacious pit bull, never believing she wouldn’t make it. She loved to dance, eat sushi, dress fashionably, play Dominos, enjoy good wine/ good food & anything to make you laugh. She was beautiful in both mind & spirit & I will always love her & never forget her. The first photo is the one I love the most & the rest are from the photo shoot I posted earlier on my blog.
Sasha was our team captain for “Fight Like A Girl” entered in the the Dragon Boat Races the last two years.
RIP till we meet again!
