The Nine Family

How do you shoot a family picture when an important member of the family isn’t there?

I was worried about this.  Worried about there being such a huge hole in the heart of this family.  Worried about him not being there.

But he was there.

I saw him in Alec’s goofiness and quirky smile.

I saw him in Jilli’s perfect freckles and joy for life.

I saw him in Tina’s strength and the fiercness for which she loves her children.

He will always live on in this beautiful family.

Thank you, Tina for letting my capture your family.  Your strength and love for your children is so evident.  Here’s your slideshow.

  3. I got teared up looking through these. I lost my dad when I was 17 and I know exactly how this family feels.

    Beautiful pictures.

    No words to describe how honored I was to have you photography our family…. Your amazing Drew! You captured our family perfectly. I am moved by these images and shocked by how perfect that day was, given that there was someone missing. Thank you for making it so easy and for helping me document our sweet little family. Wishing you and your family the very best. Thank you.

    Beautiful pictures! My husband died in August of last year due to cancer and we have 2 young daughter’s 3 & 4 and had never had family pictures. It never seemed a good time and then he got sick and died. It was one of my biggest regrets. This has inspired me to get our pictures taken even with my husband missing.
