When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something's suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful. ~Barbara Bloom
I had the absolute pleasure of photographing this family last fall, we had a fun session and clicked "artistically" that is always so important, if the family or client doesn't get my style then you will not like your photos. Their son, at that time, was very ill, he had biliary atresia, and I do not know that much about it, but I do know that this Spring he became very ill and went on to the Liver Donor's list in hopes of finding a new liver. His mom contacted The Little Hero Project, www.littlestheroesproject.org, an charity organization of photographers that donate their time to families of sick children, the family receives a free photo session for their Little Hero. She asked for me to be their photographer.
Long story short, Jax received his new liver about a month ago (my timing could be wrong on that) he is doing fabulous and is a happy and healthy baby now. I went to their house this week to photograph him and his family. I am so blessed to know this family, their strength as a family is unwavering, the courage and endurance of Jax amazes me. He truly is an amazing child and a "Little Hero"Here is the link to his website http://www.baaware.org/index.html
Enjoy my favorites from this beautiful session
