Cincinnati Area::Southeast Indiana Event Photographer:: Benefit Walk for Hunter

A couple of weeks ago, we had a benefit walk/auction for baby Hunter and his parents. Here’s how the flyer for the auction read:

“Hunter was born November 22, 2010 with a disorder which is still unknown. He has craniofacial anomalies of the skull and face bones. In short, Hunter has a short bottom jaw, underdeveloped eyes, no ears, cleft lip, and cleft palate. In addition, he has short femur bones and his hips are displaced. Hunter’s short bottom jaw makes it difficult for him to breathe and eat by mouth. He breathes through a tracheal tube that was inserted at birth, and he gets his nutrients through a gastric feeding tube inserted two and a half weeks after birth. Hunter has hearing aids where his ears would be to aid development of his hearing and speech. In the six weeks that Hunter was at Children’s Hospital after birth, doctors performed three surgeries. He has many more surgeries slated over time…”

The walk was an amazing success. The turn out from our little hometown surpassed all of our expectations. As one volunteer said, it isn’t the financial gift that matters as much as being able to physically see the support of the community.
I am sharing this to involve you, my Internet friends, in something beyond important to me. M., the beautiful and amazing mommy to this incredible and sweet boy, has always been the kind of friend I can only long to be. She’s strong in imeasurable ways, and I only hope to be half the mommy she is one day. She has always been a giver, and now’s my time to give back.
If you want to know more, email me. If you want to find a way to get involved (the walk was held two weeks ago, but there’s going to be a need here for a long time), let me know. I love this family so much; I can’t wait to share more pictures from the amazing day.

  • Father’s Day, 2019 | 06•16•2019 🖤 generous, devoted to his girls, very opinionated about food, not opinionated about pretty much anything else, fiercely loyal, extremely selfless, dedicated to kingdom work, smart and prophetic but even more humble... and also the greatest daddy to the greatest girl. 🖤 happy father’s day to my guy, the best I know.
  • I held her and rocked her until the very end. I kissed her again and again, and told her how much we have loved her and how we will always love her forever. It was peaceful and sweet and exactly what we needed, even if it’s not what we ever wanted. I wish more than anything that she was healthy and could have been with us for 100 more years, but I know she’s not in pain anymore, and I know that’s good. It’s just really hard. She was my best friend, she went through so much with us, and now we have to figure out how to get through this without her.

I’ve got to take a break from here for a while - we’ll be moving soon, and I never thought I’d have to do this without her. I’ll be ok, it’s just that right now I miss her more with every breath. ♥️ Thank you to everyone for your kind words, it means so much.
  • I woke up this morning with a tear-soaked pillow and a new understanding of heartache. They say that a dog will bless you with the best days of your life... and also with one of the worst. 💔 Yesterday was the hardest day I’ve ever had. She gave us so much... she gave us everything. I love her so much.
  • I was certain that no matter how many years went by, she would be with us forever. I didn’t think I’d ever have to share this news: our sweet, incredible, beautiful Elliott has passed. 🖤

I’ll share more later. Right now, our hearts are so very broken.
  • Amen for the weekend. 🙌🏻🎉 Our main squeeze has been living away from us during the week, so we count down to Thursday nights when he comes home for a couple of days. And then we all get to be a part of our new community at @lakesidechristianchurch together on Sunday, which has quickly become our favorite day each week. ♥️👏🏻 So, happy weekending, my friends - see you on Monday. ✌🏻😎
  • We are SO excited to be coming home... this summer is going to be a good one. ☀️ I am now booking for August and have some special Fresh 48 and Motherhood Session pricing, just for you, Northern KY! ♥️
