Those Special Sessions… | Sturgeon County Photographer

By on March 9th, 2016

You know those sessions that tug at your heart and break a small piece off. The ones you will ALWAYS remember. The ones that teach you so much in one short hour or so that you never knew you’d learn. The ones that make you love life and be grateful for the life you have.

This was one of those sessions. One I will always remember. One I don’t fully understand nor will I ever understand. One that fills your heart with so much sadness, pain, yet strength to pull yourself together so you can give a grieving mother and or father some closure and memories that will surely fade. The comfort of knowing when they are ready they have the photos to look back on and remember the tiny lips, the tiny curls, and they will remember that she had momma ‘s eyes and daddy’s little nose.

I will never understand a mothers or fathers grief and pain after a loss of a child. But knowing I can give them something, anything to help ease a little of that pain is comforting to me, i can only hope one day it will be comforting to them as well.

My favorite sessions are the ones where I leave with a smile on my face and a skip to my heart.  This session was one of them.  This was also a Tiny Light session.  

This is Ben.  



He is a handsome little guy who happens to have PontiCerebellar Hypoplasia Type 3 (PCH3).  (PCH 3 is a rare neurological disorder caused by under development of the cerebellum and brain stem)
He is a happy little guy with smiles and love.  He has the most beautiful eyes I have ever seen.  They are so full of life.  



Ben has a little sister who is as sweet as a cotton candy. With eyes that remind me of the ocean in Hawaii. Mom and dad are pretty amazing also!  





I was honored to shoot this family.  They are very strong, loving and supportive family.  I wish nothing but the best for them.
