MIDDLEBURG HEIGHTS, OH — A 14-year-old girl in Ohio got the princess photo shoot she has wanted in a place that really hits home. Kayla Hoover-Radicella was diagnosed with a form of brain cancer called Anaplastic Ependymoma in 2012. All the tumors were removed. Unfortunately, the cancer returned according to WOIO-TV. When the owner of Double J Photography heard about Kayla, she wanted to do something. “I feel like it was fate that had someone even think to tag me of all the local photographers to help this young lady with her princess session. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to have met this young lady and her family,” Ashley Legg-Sotomayor said. Not only did Sotomayor donate her time, she arranged to have a dress, make-up artist, and a limo donated. The photo shoot started next to a lake, but the next location was a big surprise that hit close to home. The shoot took place in the Prayers from Maria Sunflower Field which was planted by a family who lost a daughter to brain cancer. Kayla is raising money through her Etsy shop and a GiveForward account.
